After graduating at Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy) Giuseppe Gorini (GG) carried outhis research at the Plasma Physics Institute of the National Research Council and at thePhysics Department of Milano University. He joined Milano-Bicocca University since itscreation in 1998. Currently GG is associate professor at the Physics Department of Milano-Bicocca University where he teaches fundamental physics courses for the degrees inEnvironmental Science and Physics.GG has created a new research line combining R&D in neutron and gamma spectroscopyinstrumentation for plasma and material science. The instrumentation is developed fortokamak facilities (mainly JET) and neutron sources (especially ISIS, the spallation neutronsource in UK) in collaboration with other EU teams. Main projects since 1998 are:i) MPRu and TOFOR projects for neutron spectroscopy on JET. The MPR (magnetic protonrecoil) spectrometer, in use at JET since 1996 for deuterium-tritium fusion measurements,was modified to be compatible with deuterium-deuterium measurements. The secondspectrometer is based on the Time of Flight technique and was installed in 2006. Thesesystems provide unique observations of fast ion dynamics in plasmas.ii) Gamma Ray Spectroscopy (GRS) at JET. Aim of the project is the design, construction andexploitation of a new system for gamma ray spectroscopy in fusion where the gamma rayscome from nuclear reactions involving MeV ions.iii) Detectors for epithermal neutron spectroscopy. Following the successful development ofthe Resonant Detector (RD) for epithermal neutron spectroscopy, the group in Milano-Bicocca designed and built VLAD, a very low angle detector array for small angle neutronscattering experiments on VESUVIO beamline at ISIS.iv) ANCIENT CHARM project for neutron imaging of Cultural Heritage objects. New nondestructiveneutron imaging methods were developed and applied to a number of museumobjects by a team of 10 partner research institutions led by GG.v) PANAREA project for the design and construction of two experimental stations at ISIS forapplication of neutron techniques to engineering and archaeometry. The project implementsthe international agreement for the use of ISIS by the Italian research DANTE project, first credited in-kind contribution from Italy to the European SpallationSource project. It addresses the construction of thermal neutron detectors based on GEMtechnique and a specially developed solid neutron converter.The scientific production by GG is documented in about 200 journal papers.
