Dr. Gaétan Chevalier received his PhD in Engineering Physics from the University of Montreal Polytechnic School, where he worked on the first measurements of the nuclear magnetic dipole and quadrupole moments of the 91Zr isotope.
He then became a Postdoctoral Scholar at the “Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique” (National Scientific Research Institute) in Varennes (near Montreal) Canada, where he developed carbon probes to measure neutral particle flux on the inner walls of the “Tokamac de Varennes.”
Dr. Chevalier then went to UCLA where he first worked as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the PISCES group of the M.A.N.E. (Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering) Department. Later he became a staff member of the Low Energy Plasma Group of the Electrical Engineering Department. He was also Director of Research at the California Institute for Human Science.
