Valentina Bisogni

Assistant Physicist

Valentina Bisogni joined the Soft Inelastic X-ray Scattering (SIX) beamline team in 2014 as Beamline Scientist.

Her research focuses mostly on strongly correlated electron systems - in the form of single crystal, thin films or heterostructures - by studying their electronic properties using spectroscopic techniques, like X-ray Absorption (XAS), Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS), as well as Photoemission (XPS), Resonant Elastic X-ray Scattering (REXS) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS).

This expertise was acquired during her PhD at the ID08 soft x-ray beamline of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble (jointly with Politecnico di Milano), where she used XAS and RIXS to study the high-temperature superconducting cuprates, and in the following PostDoc experiences: 1) at IFW Dresden, where she focused on the 1D cuprate systems, 2) at the ADRESS beamline of Swiss Light Source, PSI, where she studied rare-earth nickelate thin films and titanates heterostructures.
