Recently, we had a premiere at RI. For the first and definitely not for the last time, we opened our doors for DPG “Ein Tag for Ort”, a program from Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft that offers students the opportunity to explore different career paths by visiting companies. We had the pleasure of hosting a group of twelve students who were curious to experience first-hand what it is like to be a physicist in the industry. It was an exciting day! We were happy to show the group around and provide insight into how RI operates as a high-tech company that supplies key components to research facilities around the world.
During their visit, we had a variety of exciting projects underway, including crab cavities for CERN, IRE Lighthouse, HOM-damped 500MHz cavities for PSI, the extraction kicker for FAIR at GSI, and an RFQ for a costumer working on medical radioisotopes, all at different stages of development. We appreciated the students' curiosity, were impressed with the prior knowledge many of them had, and enjoyed engaging in lively discussions that allowed us to share our passion for innovation and cutting-edge technology. It was a pleasure to showcase our work and demonstrate how we are making a positive impact in the world of science.
We wish our guests all the best for their future careers and hope to have the opportunity to reconnect with them down the line. You always meet twice, don’t you?
