William (Bill) C. Chronis

Bill has had more than 40 years experience in engineering, analysis, research, and development of high technology equipment including airborne hardware, nuclear reactors, cryogenic refrigeration and gas purification, and complete integration of cryogenic equipment in physics research laboratories. During his career Bill has been the Manager of Cryogenic Refrigeration and Gas Purification for CVI Incorporated where he completed the syntheses, design, initial start-up and qualification of a 1000, 3000, and 8000 watt helium refrigerators with compressors that ranged up to 5700 horsepower. These machines are located at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and Livermore National Laboratory in conjunction with the Fusion Program for the United States. As Senior Staff Engineer-Cryogenics at Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (J Lab) Newport News, Virginia Bill was in charge of the cryogenic group for circa thirteen (13) years. In this capacity he managed five (5) engineers and twenty-two (22) technicians with the cryogenic technical responsibilities for design, construction, start-up, and operation of the Cryogenic Test Facility (CTF) for cryo-testing cavities, cryo-units, cryomodules, magnets, and support of injector development, from a cryogenic viewpoint. Bill was also in charge of all cryogenic plants including the CHL and the ESR refrigerator and was responsible for the upgrade of the MSU cryogenic plant. In addition he held the position of Lead Cryogenic Engineer at J Lab for the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) refrigerator at ORNL. In this position he was charged with the responsibility to lead the design of the cryogenic system and writing of the system specifications. Bill's education includes an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology from Milwaukee School of Engineering, B.S., Mechanical Engineering from Milwaukee School of Engineering, and Graduate Studies at Carnegie Institute of Technology, Carnegie-Mellon University.

Guy Gistau Baguer

Guy's cryogenic career has span over 35 years with his focus on helium refrigeration with Air Liquide in France. During his tenure with Air Liquide he was in charge of helium refrigeration at Air Liquide, in the Sassenage (France) workshops. Guy developed the first automatic helium refrigerator/liquefier: HELIAL. In addition he completed the design, fabrication, and start up of various plants; among them: Tore Supra (300 W at 1.8 K with cryogenic compressors), 6 kW at 4.5 K, 12/18 kW at 4.5 K and LHC (18 kW at 4.5 K and 2.4 kW at 1.8 K) refrigerators for CERN. He participated in the design and start up of the cryogenic compressor train for the CEBAF refrigerator (5 kW at 2.0 K). Guy is the Chairman of the International Cryogenic Engineering Committee (ICEC), and a member of the A1/2 commission of the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR). Guy has published thirty-six (36) papers in domestic and international conferences and has had nine (9) publications in various technical magazines and Techniques de l'Ing'nieur'. He holds nine (9) patents in the field of helium refrigeration. Guy is a graduate from the 'Ecole Nationale Sup'rieure des Arts et M'tiers'
