Françoise Crifo - Gaia
Observatoire de Paris-Meudon
Françoise Crifo works at Paris Observatory, Meudon, now as emeritus astronomer, within the CU6-RVS group. Her main contribution is the elaboration of the lists of candidate standard stars for the RVS calibration, on the whole sky and near the ecliptic poles.
Before that, she worked since 1983 for the Hipparcos Input Catalogue consortium, mainly with Catherine Turon and Ana Gómez; she defined the so-called "Survey", and made the inclusion in the Hipparcos Catalogue of a good part of the "problem stars", at a time where digitised surveys did not exist.
