NSLS-II Survey & Alignment Technician, Mechanical Engineering, Accelerator Systems Division
Don comes to us from the Physics Department where he was responsible for beam-based laser alignment with accuracy of +/- 10 microns using a PSD (silicon detector) for quadruples and other magnet alignments. He also worked side-by-side with NSLS surveyors on ATF alignment jobs.
In 2003, Don received an AAS degree from Suffolk Community College and has successfully completed a number of technical certification courses.
Reporting to Sushil Sharma, Don will carry out complex assignments regarding the precision alignment of girder-magnet assemblies using laser-tracker-based survey and alignment equipment. He will also assist in the development of the primary and secondary survey networks for the NSLS-II facility.
