Klaus Attenkofer


  • Assistant Scientist at BESSRC, Argonne National Laboratory


  • Ph.D, Physics, University of Hamburg, 2000 (X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism)
  • Beamline scientist at HASYLAB (EXAFS-beamline) 1997-2001
  • Beamline scientist at BESSRC


  • My scientific interest is focused on resonant photon-electron interaction and its application to different scientific fields (XAFS, XMCD, RIXS, resonant X-ray scattering). In particular, I'm involved in the following fields:
    • magnetism
    • new experimental techniques for catalysis
    • time dependent spectroscopy (XAFS, XMCD, RIXS)
