Prof. Carol Hirschmugl University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

(This is a special joint colloquium) Prof. Carol Hirschmugl received her B.Sc. in Physics from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1987 and her Applied Physics PhD. from Yale University in 1994. She then received an Alexander von Humboldt grant to do research at Fritz Haber Institut, Berlin, from 1994-1996. In 1996, she was awarded the University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellowship to work at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Since 1997, Hirschmugl has been at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she is professor of the Physics Department and Director of the Laboratory for Dynamics and Structure at Surfaces.

Professor Hirschmugl held visiting scientist positions at ANKA, FZK (Karlsruhe, Germany) in 2004 and at ESRG (Grenoble, France) in 2005. Hirschmugl's awards include three from the National Science Foundation and the Research Corporation Research Innovation award.

Prof. Hirschmugl led an effort to develop ground breaking instrumentation for Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy. The newly constructed super bright IR beamline at the Synchrotron Research Center allows fast, diffraction limited imaging with chemical sensitivity. Most recently Prof. Hirschmugl developed 3D IR tomography that can provide 3D chemical images with micrometer resolution.

She will discuss application of these techniques in biology and medicine.
