Gianni Tassotto, ID 03064N, retires on Thursday, Jan. 28. For 44 years, Gianni has been our resident expert on multiwire profile monitors, SWICs, SEMs, PWCs, OTRs, and the like. He designed devices for the fixed-target and accelerator beamlines and provided his services to colleagues in Japan, Finland, and the UK. Gianni’s latest project is the development of beam profile wire planes made of fine carbon nanotube wires.
Gianni has been a delight to work with and to learn from. We will miss him.
