Guy Savard is the Director of the ATLAS facility. In this role, he oversees the technical operation of the DOE National User Facility, its scientific program, and guides the evolution of the facility to keep on fulfilling the evolving needs of the US and international nuclear physics communities. He also leads the radioactive ion trapping group whose ion manipulation technique developments led to the CARIBU upgrade to ATLAS and the N=126 factory. He has a joint appointment with the Department of Physics and the Enrico Fermi Institute at the University of Chicago.
Daniel Santiago is a physicist working at the ATLAS accelerator facility, where he serves as both user liaison and CARIBU scientist, enabling low-energy nuclear physics research at ATLAS.
In his capacity as user liaison, Daniel engages in frequent interactions with the user community and operations staff. This collaboration helps determine the optimal timing and logistics for conducting experiments at ATLAS.
In his role as CARIBU scientist, Daniel specializes in the extraction of beams consisting of radioactive ions from the CARIBU source, and transporting these beams to the designated end stations for our users’ experiments.
