Profile Summary

Daniele Spiga graduated in Physics from the Milano University in 2000. In 2005 he was awarded with the Ph.D in Astrophysics and Astronomy at the Milano-Bicocca University, after defending a technological thesis developed at INAF/OAB (Brera Astronomical Observatory), devoted to the development of multilayer-coated mirrors for future X-ray telescopes. His Ph.D Thesis was awarded with the "P. Tacchini" prize in 2005. In 2007 he appointed a position as INAF/OAB staff researcher and is currently responsible for metrology labs at the same institute. He currently works in the X-ray optics group at INAF/OAB on the surface metrology of X-ray mirrors, multilayer characterizations and hard X-ray optic tests in X-ray full illumination and pencil beam. His main interest is the development of software to consistently predict the imaging quality from metrology data.
