Mike Tartaglia Mike Tartaglia, head of the Test and Instrumentation Department, wrote this column. The Technical Division facilities and capabilities to advance the laboratory’s strategic vision for future accelerators based on superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) technology have been under vigorous development for the past decade. The most recent development was the startup of operations of two vertical test stands. Arriving at this milestone required strong leadership and extensive time and resources. The project to build the second and third SRF vertical…
