Monitoring at Chemical Agent Disposal Facilities stockpile programs. His work in air monitoring during the past 25 years has been conducted not only at CMS Research Corporation, which he founded and ran for 12 years, but also at Southern Research Institute, from which he retired in 2003. Albert A. Viggiano, a research chemist with the Space Vehicles Directorate of the Air Force Research Laboratory, graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a B.Sc. in chemistry (with highest honors) in 1976. He received his Ph.D. in chemical physics from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1980. Since graduate school, he has been active in the fields of atmospheric ion chemistry and kinetics, specifically in measuring ion molecule reaction rates of interest to atmospheric chemistry. Dr. Viggiano developed a chemical iononization mass spectrometer detection scheme for studying the thermal decomposition of N2O5 and was involved in measuring the chemistry that allowed sulfuric acid measurements in the atmosphere to be made. As a postdoctoral fellow in Heidelberg, Germany, he used these measurements to derive the first height profiles of sulfuric acid in the atmosphere and was involved in obtaining and analyzing in situ mass spectrometric data on the ion composition of the stratosphere. Since coming to the Air Force Research Laboratory in 1983, Dr. Viggiano has worked on measurements of ion kinetics related to a number of problems over a broad range of conditions. He has developed a technique that allows the effects of internal energy on the reactivity of gas phase ion molecule reactions to be studied. Using this technique, he has studied the effect of rotational energy on reactivity in more systems than that known collectively elsewhere. He has been instrumental in developing a technique to measure ion molecule reactions at temperatures over 1000 K for the first time. The addition of a supersonic expansion source to the selected ion flow drift tube allows for the measurement of mass selected cluster ions at thermal energy for the first time. A high-pressure turbulent flow tube is the first of its type for studying ion molecule reactions. Dr. Viggiano has authored or co-authored more than 240 papers and book chapters and has given 70 seminars at universities and laboratories and over 230 presentations at scientific meetings. He was lead author of the paper of the year at the Phillips Laboratory in 1993 and spent 2 months at the Max Planck Institut fur Kernphysik working with Frank Arnold under the Air Force Window on Europe program. He won the Loeser Award in 1997 and the Air Force Basic Research Award in 1999. David R. Walt, Robinson Professor of Chemistry at Tufts University, received a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Michigan and a Ph.D. in chemical biology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
