Professor Alan Michette

Research interests

Research interests: novel x-ray sources, including microfocus, laser-plasma, transition radiation and high-harmonic generation through extreme non-linear processes; diffractive and reflective x-ray optics and their combinations, including multilayers and adaptive systems; applications of x-rays in radiobiology, cultural heritage and the materials and environmental sciences; the development of cosmic-ray detectors

Current research: studies of radiation-induced cancers; microspectroscopy of wood-based materials aimed at reducing the environmental impact of their production; studies of wood-based cultural heritage objects for conservation, preservation and restoration; understanding the origins of ultra-high-energy cosmic rays using detectors based in local schools.
