04.05.2012 | Mourning for Hans Otto Schuff
GSI mourns Hans Otto Schuff (* 23.1.1930, † 15.4.2012). Hans Otto Schuff was one of the founding fathers of GSI and its first administrative director from 1969 to 1992. During his long tenure that ranged from the preparation and construction of the UNILAC accelerator, the founding of GSI to the start of the experimental program at the heavy ion synchrotron SIS 18 and the experimental storage ring ESR, Schuff formed and gave distinction to the fate and development of our institute. GSI's employees bow to his achievements in life and will keep his memory in great honor.
