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 researcher. He has worked until January 2018 in the X-ray optics group at INAF/OAB on the surface metrology of X-ray mirrors, on optical simulations of mirror performances using physical optics and analytical methods, and on the development of new facilities for testing the optical elements of the ATHENA X-ray telescope. He has been Principal Investigator of the ESA-funded project SIMPOSiuM (Silicon Pore Optics Modelling and SImulations) for the ATHENA X-ray observatory, and of the BEaTriX (Beam Expander Testing X-ray Facility) project to realize a compact X-ray beamline to perform the functional tests of the focusing modules for ATHENA. Since February 2018, he works as Staff Engineer in the Optics & Metrology Department at SLAC-LCLS (Stanford University). His main interest is the development of software to consistently predict the imaging quality from metrology data.
