Giuseppe Bertuccio, Professor of Electronics at the Department of Electronics, Informatics and Bioengineering of the Milano Politecnico, won the 2019 RTSD Scientist Award, an international award given by the Scientific Advisory Board of the International Symposium of Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors to researchers who gave outstanding contributions in the development of semiconductor detectors at environment temperature and associated electronics throughout their career. Prof. Bertuccio received the award after 32 years of research activity at the Politecnico, in which the school of Prof. Emilio Gatti, his mentor and teacher, had a primary role. Bertuccio has been an INFN associate for many years. Within the INFN Gruppo V, he has carried out active research about GaAs, SiC and Si derectors, and on the associated front-end electronics.
The prize will be awarded during the RTSD Conference, which will be held in late October 2019 together with the IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference in Manchester-UK.
