Ralf Hendrik Menk

Adjungerad Professor |Visiting professor


In 1993 Ralf Hendrik Menk received his PhD (Dr. rer. nat) in physics at the University Siegen and at HASYLAB at DESY, Germany. After postdoctoral stays at HASYLAB (1993 - 1995) and at the NSLS at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, New York, USA (1995 - 1997) he was rewarded with an individual European Marie Curie Grant (1997 – 1999 CT 961694), which brought him to Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste in Italy. Ralf has been a senior researcher at Elettra-Sincrotrone Trieste since 2001 and since 2016 member of the medium level management. Starting from 2013 he has been a permanent lecturer at the University of Trieste, Italy. Occasionally he also served as visiting lecturer at the University Siegen, Germany, at the Politecnico Milano, Italy, at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, and at the ICTP, Trieste. Between 2016 to 2021 Ralf was an adjunct professor at College of Medical Imaging, University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada. From 2022 he is an adjunct professor at Mid Sweden University.


Ralf Hendrik Menk is active in the development of the next generation synchrotron systems and is actively working to upgrade detector technology at Elettra Sincrotrone. He estimates that most synchrotron plants will need new types of imaging detector systems within 5 years. Ralf has the opportunity to involve Mid Sweden University in the development of detectors for synchrotron installations based on multi-channel fixed state detectors with CVP-deposed monocrystalline diamond, or detectors based on III/V elements. He also works with imaging in the soft X-ray area with a backside-lit sCMOS sensor.
