Dr. Hryhoriy Stryhanyuk

Group Leader - SIMS, Department of Isotope Biogeochemistry,
Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ, Germany.

Hryhoriy Stryhanyuk received his Ph.D. in solid state physics from Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (2003, Ukraine). He built up his expertise in material science and experimental physics involving time-resolved VUV-Vis luminescence spectroscopy, Spin-resolved Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (Spin-HAXPES) and Secondary Ion MassSpectroscopy (SIMS)

Hryhoriy spent his 8 years of post-doctoral time as a beamline scientist at synchrotron facility dedicating his activity to the development of photoluminescence and absorption spectroscopy methods, user support(Beamline I “SuperLumi” at HASYLAB, DESY Hamburg),implementation of Spin-HAXPES experiment (BL47XU beamline, SPring-8, Japan; as a postdoctoral fellow at JGU, Mainz).

From 2012 he was involved into the establishment of ProVIS-Centre as a facility manager at UFZ in Leipzig. Since 2015 he leads the SIMS group of ProVIS. His current activity is focused at the development of high-resolution Chemical Microscopy involving imaging SIMS techniques (ToF-SIMS and nanoSIMS), optimization of sample preparation and elaboration of quantitative data evaluation methods.
