Effects of external perturbations (temperature, pressure, magnetic fields) on the optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures

Short CV:

Dr. Giorgio Pettinari is a researcher at the IFN Rome Unit. He got a master degree in Physics (Condensed Matter, 2005) and a PhD degree in Materials Science (2008) at Sapienza University of Rome, where he investigated the effect of a small concentration (~1%) of nitrogen and bismuth atoms on the electronic properties of III-V semiconductor alloys, as well as the effects of hydrogen incorporation on such systems and on III-nitrides (i.e., InN and InGaN). Then, he spend two and a half years (2009-11) as Associate Researcher at the High Field Magnet Laboratory of the Radboud University of Nijmegen (The Netherlands) studying the properties of nanostructured semiconductors at high magnetic fields (up to 30 T). He got a Marie Curie Research Fellowship (PI of the EU project NANOLEDS, PIEF-2010-GA-272612) that he spend (2011-2013) at the University of Nottingham (UK)  developing novel strategies for the fabrication of nano-LEDs and  movable LEDs. Since 2013, he is at the IFN Rome Unit, first as Scientific Coordinator of the CNR unit of the Italian FIRB (Future in Research Program) project “DeLIGHTeD” (2013-2017) founded by Italian  MIUR (Ministry for Education, University and Research). There, his activity is mainly focused on the fabrication and studies of photonics (mainly, integrated quantum emitter-photonic crystal systems) and plasmonics devices. He is also responsible for the fabircation of KIDs for astrophisics and high energy physics applicaions within several projects founded by ASI (Italian Space Agency), INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics), or ERC (European Reseach Councile).
