Guy Monnet

Guy Monnet is the winner of the 2019 Tycho Brahe Medal of the European Astronomical Society (EAS). This award specifically recognises his fundamental contributions to the implementation of 3D spectroscopy on optical and infrared telescopes, and his international leadership on the instrumentation programmes of large observatories. Both of these achievements are demonstrated by the work he did at ESO; as the first head of the Instrumentation Division, he oversaw the completion of the first generation of instruments for the Very Large Telescope (VLT), the largest and most ambitious instrumentation programme of any ground-based observatory.
