Public mini symposium with the Faculty of Science and Technology’s honorary doctor 2018, Professor Henry Chapman, with the title Incoherent Diffractive Imaging.

Henry N. Chapman, born in 1967, is a Professor of Physics at Universität Hamburg, Germany. He leads a division at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science at DESY, Hamburg, where algorithms, instruments and methods for X-ray imaging are developed in cooperation with leading materials researchers and structural biologists. Together with researchers from Uppsala University, Chapman has conducted innovative experiments where complex biological molecules have been depicted with ultrafast and extremely intensive X-ray pulses from the free-electron laser. The collaboration has created a new interdisciplinary research domain, which gathers researchers from various disciplines, ranging from biology to chemistry and physics, to develop new methods for atomic imaging and has resulted in a large number of joint publications.
