Dilano K. Saldin
Research covers all aspects of the use of radiation to study matter, and diffraction and scattering phenomena. Particular interests are holography, tomography, and x-ray scattering from biomolecules.
Dilano Saldin obtained his B.A in 1971 and his a Ph.D. in Materials in 1975, both from the University of Oxford. From 1976 to 1981 he worked there first as a junior research fellow and then as a lecturer. In 1981 he started working as a research fellow at Blackett Laboratory, Imperial College, University of London, where he stayed until 1988. Since 1988, Saldin has been at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he holds the rank of Professor. From 2000 to 2008 he was Chair of the Department of Physics.
As a result of his research, Saldin holds two atomic imaging patents. He is consultant to the commission on Electron Diffraction, International Union of Crystallography, and to a major Japanese electronics company in the area of electron holography. He is associate executive editor of Surface Review and Letters and member of the editorial board of Journal of Holography and Speckle. His current research is supported by a UWM Research Growth Initiative Award and grants from the Materials Sciences and the Biosciences Divisions of the US Department of Energy.
