Dr. Pierluigi Campana
His research activity began in 1982 with his collaboration in the NUSEX experiment to study proton stability in the Mont Blanc tunnel, working on the development of gas particle detectors (streamer tubes). From 1982 to 1986 he continued his development activity in Frascati and at CERN, using these detectors in electro-magnetic and hadron calorimeters for the LEP machine devices. After these developments, all LEP devices will choose to use streamer tubes. From 1986 to 1989 he contributed to the construction of the detectors for the ALEPH experiment, destined to its hadron calorimeter and its muon chambers. Since 1995 he has been taking part in the development of the scintillating fibre calorimeter of the KLOE experiment on the Frascati DAΦNE machine. He followed its construction and subsequently contributed to the design of the large central carbon fibre chamber. He is the leader of the Frascati Group and Technical Coordinator and budget manager for INFN. Since 2001 he has been part of the LHCb experiment on the LHC machine at CERN. He coordinates the Frascati Group which is involved in the development of the wire chambers for the muon trigger of the experiment, their production, testing and subsequent installation at CERN. From 2005 to 2009 he was INFN coordinator of the experiment. From 2011 to 2014 he was spokesperson for the LHCb Collaboration at CERN.
Since August 2015 he is Director of LNF, for a four years term.
