Dr. Davide Piccinotti

Project
Active Photonic Metamaterials

Short CV
Davide received his 3-year Degree in Materials Science from University of Padua, Italy, in 2012. After that, he attained the Master Degree in Materials Science at the same institution in 2014 completing a 6 months Erasmus period at IM2NP laboratory in Marseille (France). In that period he conducted research in As-doped Ge after laser thermal annealing by using Atom Probe Tomography technique. He began his PhD studies at the Optoelectronics Research Centre in November 2014.
