Sanjit Ghose

Associate Physicist, Powder Diffraction Beamline, NSLS-II Experimental Facilities Division

Dr. Sanjit Ghose joined the project on January 4, 2010. His primary role as the Associate Physicist for the Powder Diffraction Beamline is to work with the user community to develop a scientific research program and its technical implementation at a state-of-the-art X-ray Powder Diffraction beamline at NSLS-II including its design, construction, and commissioning.

Dr. Ghose has over 8 years of postdoctoral experience that he brings to this position, including working as Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Research Associate at University of Chicago, a Visiting Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and most recently as a Research Scientist with Stony Brook University. During his appointment with Stony Brook, Dr. Ghose served as the resident beamline scientist for X17C and B3 at NSLS. His expertise is in the application of various x-ray diffraction techniques in the fields of material science, geo-environmental science, and earth sciences. Dr. Ghose’s research interests include the development and application of novel synchrotron x-ray techniques in understanding the fundamental structural evolutions in earth and electronic materials at different environmental conditions. Dr. Ghose received his PhD in Physics from the Institute of Physics at Utkal University in India.

Dr. Ghose’s research experience in X-ray diffraction, his work with the user community, and his strong background in beamline controls and software make him a great addition to the Experimental Facilities effort and the NSLS-II Project.
