Dr. Anton Tadich
Soft X-ray Spectroscopy Beamline, Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation

Dr Anton Tadich received his PhD from La Trobe University (Victoria, Australia) in 2008, working in the photoemission instrumentation group led by Professors John Riley and Robert Leckey, who pioneered the technique of Angle Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (ARPES) in Australia. Following his PhD, Dr Tadich obtained a position as a beamline scientist at the Soft X-ray Beamline, Australian Synchrotron, where he currently works today.

Alongside his beamline colleagues, Dr Tadich is responsible for the training and management of visiting scientists at the beamline, as well as the maintenance and development of beamline instrumentation and techniques. He has significant expertise in synchrotron-based photoelectron spectroscopy, vacuum instrumentation and surface science techniques, and is an expert in the application of these tools to investigate the chemical and electronic structure of low dimensional condensed matter systems such as surface-transfer doped diamond, 2D materials, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) and topological insulators/semimetals. Anton is a national expert in the technique of Angle Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (ARPES) for measuring electronic bandstructure, and he is responsible for managing the only ARPES detector in Australia, a toroidal electron spectrometer, based at the Soft X-ray Beamline.

Anton is an active researcher within the condensed matter physics community, and maintains a number of collaborations with local and international research groups. He is a Partner Investigator with the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low Energy Electronics (FLEET, www.fleet.org), and is currently the President of the Vacuum Society of Australia (VSA).
