Dear Small-Angle Scatterers,

I have been requested by Petra Kotnik of Anton Paar to forward the sad  
message below to the small-angle scattering community.
Many of you may have known Heimo Schnablegger in connection with Anton  
Paar's SAXSess instrument product line.
He was also contributing significantly to an ISO SAXS measurement  
standard for particle size analysis, currently being drafted by ISO  
sub-committee TC 24 / SC 4.
Heimo's sudden passing away about 10 days ago is a shock and a major  
loss to the small-angle scattering community.

Andrew Allen
[Chair, IUCr Commission on Small-Angle Scattering]

Graz, May 25, 2012

Mag. Dr. Heimo Schnablegger

March, 1963  May, 2012

It is our sad duty to inform you of the completely unexpected death of  
our Anton Paar colleague of many
years, Mag. Dr. Heimo Schnablegger.

Heimo Schnablegger was born March, 1963 in Villach, Austria. After his  
secondary education in
Villach and his obligatory military service, he studied Chemistry at  
the University of Graz and wrote his Ph.D.
thesis in Particle Sizing with Scattering Techniques in 1991 in the  
group of our longstanding partner Prof. Otto
Glatter at the University of Graz in Austria. Heimo subsequently  
worked as a contract assistant at the University
of Graz.

Between 1993 and 1995 he was a Postdoctoral Associate at the  
Massachusetts Institute of Technology in
Cambridge//USA. Working with Prof. Robert E. Cohen, he applied Small- 
Angle X-ray Scattering and Electron
Microscopy to the characterization of block copolymers.

In the following years 1999 to 2002 he worked as a senior scientist at  
the Max-Planck Institute for Colloids
and Interfaces in Golm and at the University of Hamburg. In this  
period he focused on the structure and size
determination of hierarchical and self-assembly systems.

 From October 2002, Heimo Schnablegger worked at Anton Paar GmbH in  
Graz in the course of our
SAXS product line launch. He was the application-oriented scientist in  
this field that we had been seeking for
a long time. With his help, we were able to build up strong  
development and sales skills for this product line
and to successfully introduce the new product 'SAXSess' to the market.

Time and again, enthusiastic emails were received full of positive  
comments on Heimo Schnablegger, both professional
and personal.

Heimo was a lovable, unconventional, independent and hard-working  
colleague. He played the drums as a hobby,
and ultimately it was a concert of his band in Vienna that he was  
unable to attend.

We are extremely grateful to Heimo Schnablegger. Without his  
collaboration and knowledge, the
developmennt of the SAXSess product line in the last ten years would  
not have been possible, a development
we will continue to build on in the future.

We have lost an important and dear colleague in Heimo, who we will  
always remember with great admiration.

Heimo, it saddens us deeply that you have left us so early.

Friedrich Santner (CEO ), Petra Kotnik (Dept Manager MC)
