The Bright & The Busy

Interactive biographies of people at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source


John Brown
John Brown uses the powerful x-ray microscope at the ALS to study matter as diverse as red blood cells and cement. In his spare time he focuses on what can be seen through the lens of a camera.
Note: This installment of the Bright & the Busy was written in the summer of 1997. Since that time John Brown has been on leave from Berkeley Lab. However, because both John and his work are so interesting we wanted to present him to MicroWorlds readers nonetheless.
