New Zealander Graham Appleby, a physicist based in Hamburg, speaks to German publication The Local about high intensity x-ray beams and life in Germany’s scientific community, in the latest installment of “My German Career”. “I work at the local particle accelerator, which produces high intensity x-ray beams,” Appleby explains. “These are used to do structural analysis for material science research. There are many industrial applications for these techniques, ranging from nanotechnology and electronics to automotive engineering and even food science and cosmetics. My job is to know about all of these industrial applications and to assist different companies to get their analysis performed by our experts.”
