Project: ESR on Electron transport in novel Mid-IR materials and devices

Davide Maria Di Paola

Davide registered for a PhD at The University of Nottingham and will carry out the majority of research in the School of Physics and Astronomy working on the investigation of the physical properties of novel Mid-IR materials and devices by using optical and magneto-transport techniques. Prototype devices for MIR photon detection and emission will be fabricated and extensively tested in collaboration with other PROMIS partners.

He will join the Semiconductor Quantum Nanostructures Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy and will be supervised by Prof. Amalia Patanè. He will work closely with other PROMIS researchers with a number of secondment visits to the PROMIS partners.

Davide comes from the southernmost Italian island, Sicily. He has completed his BSc at the University of Trento, in the northernmost region in Italy, and then moved to the University of Pisa to complete his MSc. He has also carried out his Master’s Thesis work at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) in Genoa.

Thanks to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions, he is currently working as a Research Staff and PhD Student at the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Nottingham, under the supervision of Prof. Amalia Patane` and Dr Oleg Makarovskiy. The project he is carrying out is “Electron Transport for Novel MIR Materials and Devices”, within a working package of the International Training Network (ITN) 'Post Graduate Research on Dilute Metamorphic Nanostructures and Metamaterials in Semiconductor Photonics' (PROMIS).
