Material science and nanostructures produced with GeV heavy ions

Christina Trautmann is the head of the Materials Research Department of the GSI Helmholtz Center in Darmstadt (Germany) who operates a large scale accelerator facility for swift heavy ions.

Christina graduated in physics at the Technische Universität in Munich and received her PhD from the University of Frankfurt. Her research activities cover interaction processes of energetic, MeV to GeV, heavy ions with matter with focus on ion-beam induced modifications including defect and track formation in different material classes, performance limits of materials applied in high-dose environment and exposed to prolonged radiation (e.g., outer space, nuclear waste storage, reactor or accelerator environment, etc.) and the question how solids respond to the simultaneous exposure to pressure and ion beams. Together with her group and students from the TU Darmstadt, Christina operates several beamlines at the GSI accelerator facility and provides support to internal and external users for irradiation experiments that are dedicated to materials science including in-situ sample analysis by microscopic and spectroscopic techniques. She also promotes heavy ion beams for ion-track nanotechnology where the ion beam is used as tool for producing high-aspect-ratio micro- and nanostructures such as nanochannels and nanowires with tailored properties.

Christina teaches at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and is Editor of the Journal Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research, Section B, Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms.
