Dr. Louis Rinolfi - After graduating from INSA Lyon’s prestigious school of engineering, Louis Rinolfi pursued his career as a physicist at CERN, where he contributed to the design of the Antiprotons machines. He was subsequently in charge of the electron and positron accelerators for LEP Injectors. He led the studies on the CLIC Injectors complex. In parallel, he was member of the Machine Advisory Committee for the synchrotron light source SOLEIL. He spent a sabbatical year, as machine physicist, at SLAC, in California.
For many years, he taught at the Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble (today UGA), giving lectures on Longitudinal Beam Dynamics, Synchrotron Radiations and Stochastic Cooling. He taught at the inaugural edition of JUAS in 1994 and was a long-serving member of the school’s faculty. He was appointed JUAS Director in 2011, a position he held until 2016.
Presently he acts as advisor to the ESI President.
