Part of the research activity is focused on second harmonic generation (SHG) measurements on thin-layer films by corona poling technique and calculation of second- order nonlinear optical coefficients by Maker fringe technique. In addition, he conducts SHG-Switching measurements by modulations induced by appropriate chemical (acid / base) or physical (laser) interactions. In parallel, he deals with luminescence measurements (steady state, lifetime and quantum yields). Thin film deposition: Spin coating, casting and Inkjet printing. Thin film thickness measurements by a contact profilometer. Characterization of DSSC (Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell) photovoltaic cells: I / V (current, voltage, maximum power, total efficiency) and external quantum efficiency (IPCE).
- 2003 Graduate in Physics with specialization in structure of matter at the University of Milan.
- From 2003 to 2004 he worked at the Polytechnic of Milan.
- From 2004 to 2017 he worked with various research contracts at the University of Milan and the CNR-ISTM dealing with the production of optoelectronic devices and their characterization with particular regard to their linear and second-order nonlinear optical properties.
- Since 2018 he has been working as technologist at the CNR (first ISTM and today SCITEC institute)
