Role at ANSTO


Dr Anton Stampfl is an instrument scientist for our TAIPAN thermal 3-axis spectrometer. Over the last few years, he was also responsible for an ARC-funded project to install a $2M beryllium-filter option onto TAIPAN.


He is a solid-state physicist who has worked in the field of photoemission spectroscopy since 1983 and synchrotron radiation science and instrumentation since 1987. He has a PhD in Physics from LaTrobe University and has previously worked at the Fritz-Haber-Institut of the Max-Planck-Society in Berlin, the Freie Universitat in Berlin, as well as working at the synchrotron light sources, BESSY, SRS (Daresbury), the Advanced Photon Source and the NSRRC (Taiwan).


Anton has a broad knowledge of surface science techniques and problems. In 2009 Anton expanded his research expertise to include neutron scattering and spectroscopy.  His current research interests include: neutron and X-ray spectroscopy, radiation sciences, oxide materials and biomaterials magnetism.


He is also an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Chemistry at the University of Sydney.
