Scientific Works
R.G. graduated in 1960 in Civil Engineering, Section Transport Development, at the Polytechnic Institute of Milan (Italy), and entered the ENI-AGIP of Milan as designer in the Technical Office. He then joined the industrial research of ENI, where he completed studies and experiences on the electrical effects of flames.
After 3 years spent as Assistant of Technical Physics at the Milan Polytechnic, he was engaged in R&D by a number of companies (ARS, Breda Meccanica Bresciana), and designed and built a new inductive Plasma Torch for use in powder metallurgy of uranium oxide.
At the Breda company he developed and tested a rocket with a rotary stabilizing engine, under a program funded by the Ministry of Defense, showing the possibility of its practical use as anti-tank weapon, in competition with other anti-tank weapons guided by wire.
After a Phd in Plasma Physics, he was appointed at the Laboratory of Technology of not-Traditional Metallic Materials of CNR, collaborating, in particular, to the updating of the microprobe EMX -ARL.
He then began a teaching career, as professor in charge at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Ancona, for Physics 1& 2 and for Electromagnetic Waves.
From 1974 to 1980 he was appointed of Electron Optics at the Institute of Physics of the of University of Parma. From 1981 to 1984 he was in charge of Technical Physics for Engineers at the University of Parma.
He then passed, as a researcher, to the CNR Institute of Plasma Physics of Milan, where he remained until 1983, when he became Associate professor of Physics at the Faculty of Science of the University of Parma, from 1983 to 2003.
