ANA 2019 Award to Dr Margaret Elcombe

Dr Margaret Elcombe

The ANA Award for 2019 recognises the outstanding contribution of Dr Margaret Elcombe to nuclear science and technology in Australia by her very long term scientific contribution to neutron scattering and X-ray analysis at AAEC/ANSTO.  

Since joining AAEC as a neutron beam scientist in 1967, Margaret has been central to the development and use of neutron scattering instrumentation and X-ray techniques on HIFAR and OPAL.  She supported and guided very many AINSE students and post-docs in their research and has an impressive list of publications. Her efforts on neutron scattering using HIFAR beams provided the basis for the much expanded instrumentation on OPAL.

The ANA 2019 Award will be presented to Dr Margaret Elcombe at the ANA Annual lunch:
