The GOLF experiment is based upon a consortium of institutes (IAS, CEA/Saclay, Nice and Bordeaux Observatories from France, and IAC from Spain) involving a large number of scientists and engineers, as enumerated in Gabriel et al.(1995). Many of them are now retired ; we are greatly debtful to all of them, and we will never forget their contribution. Special thanks, either for instrumental development or data analysis to:
