Martin Fuchs


Martin Fuchs joined Brookhaven in March, 2013 as a Biophysicist. He is the Lead Beamline Scientist of the Frontier Microfocusing Macromolecular Crystallography Beamline (FMX) at National Synchrotron Light Source II.

Prior to joining the Laboratory, he was Principal beamline scientist of the X10SA Beamline for Macromolecular Crystallography at the Swiss Light Source.

He holds a PhD in Physics from Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin, where he developed an ultra-high field electron spin resonance spectrometer to investigate radical states in biomolecules (thesis "A High-Field/High-Frequency Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometer (360 GHz/14T)").
