Stefano Turchini took the degree in Physics in 1988 and is researcher at the CNR since 1994.
His scientific interest is in synchrotron radiation based spectroscopies.
He was involved in scientific projects at several synchrotron radiation sources (Daresbury (Warrington-UK), LURE (Paris-France), NSLS (Brookhaven-USA), ESRF (Grenoble-France)).
Since 1998 he is a member of the research group of the Circular Polarization beamline at ELETTRA (Trieste). His recent scientific interest is related to VUV-Soft X-Rays circular polarized light spectroscopies applied to chiral molecules and magnetic materials. He is responsible of a spectroscopy experiment in the project UliSSE (Ultrabright Light Source Spectroscopy Experiments) for atomic and molecular physics at the free electron laser FERMI@ELETTRA (Trieste). The experiment is related to the construction of a protein electrospray source. He is member of the committee of the Italian Synchrotron Radiation Society (SILS).
