Role at ANSTO

Dr Sergey Danilkin joined ANSTO in August 2004 to lead the efforts on installation and development of the TAIPAN thermal-beam 3-Axis Spectrometer at the OPAL reactor. He completed his BSc in materials science and solid-state physics at the Moscow Institute of Physical Engineering in 1974. He then went to work at the Institute for Physics and Power Engineering (Obninsk) in Laboratory of Neutron Spectroscopy performing experiments with time-of-flight spectrometer DIN-2 at the pulsed reactor in Dubna, Russia.

Sergey received his PhD in experimental physics from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna) in 1986, studying the lattice dynamics of light interstitial atoms in transition metals. Immediately prior to joining ANSTO, he was instrument scientist for a 3-Axis Spectrometer at the Hahn-Meitner Institute, Berlin, Germany. His current research interests include inelastic neutron scattering study of multicomponent alloys, hydrogenated systems and superionic conductors.
