Tevfik O Mentes
After completing undergraduate studies both in Electronics Engineering and Physics at the Bogazici University in Istanbul, I moved to State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook as a graduate student. I obtained my doctorate in Physics in 2003 working on coherent diffractive imaging and resonant x-ray magnetic scattering. Afterwards I moved to the synchrotron light source Elettra (Trieste, Italy), and promptly joined the Nanospectroscopy group specialized in x-ray and electron microscopies. My research interest covers surface magnetism, chemistry and structure, along with a range of topics on interactions of x-rays with matter.
