Gamma ray satellite GLAST: Steven Ritz plenary presentation

2010 SPIE Astronomical Instrumentation Plenary presentation. "Gamma ray satellite GLAST" Steven Ritz, Fermi's Large Area Telescope and Univ. of California
12 July 2010, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201007.10
Steven Ritz is the Deputy Principal Investigator for Fermi's Large Area Telescope (LAT) and a Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is also Associate Director for the university's Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics. Ritz has been involved with Fermi -- originally known as the Gamma-ray Large Area Telescope, or GLAST -- since 1996. Two years later, he was the GLAST Large Area Telescope (LAT) Instrument Scientist, and since 2004 has been a LAT Deputy Principal Investigator. His involvement in GLAST deepened in 2000, when he was named the GLAST Deputy Project Scientist. In 2003, he was promoted to the position of GLAST Project Scientist, a role he occupied until 2009.
