Speaker Bio & Publications

Benjamin Hornberger received his Ph.D. in 2007 from Stony Brook University for his work on phase contrast X-ray microscopy at synchrotron radiation facilities. He then joined Xradia (now Carl Zeiss X-ray Microscopy) as a product development engineer, before becoming a product manager in 2009. Today he is responsible for the Xradia Ultra and Synchrotron product lines.


He has written and co-authored several publications, including:
