Stefano Perissinotto received his master degree in Telecommunications Engineering in 2005 and his Ph.D. in Physics in 2009, both from Politecnico di Milano. He also worked at Philips Research Labs Eindhoven. After Ph.D. graduation he served as Technical Marketing Manager at CHG Group in the field of bio and renewable plastics. In 2010 he was a Junior Post Doc at Center for Nano Science and Technology of IIT at PoliMi. Since 2011 he is a junior technician at IIT-CNST at PoliMi.

During his career in research he worked on characterization of organic lasers, implementation of all-optical ultrafast modulation techniques for distributed feedback lasers and optical spectroscopy of organic materials . He also contributed to the development of organic photodetectors for artificial retina and colorimetry. At Philips he worked on self assembled monolayer junctions for molecular electronics. He is now involved in projects concerning fabrication and optical characterization of light scattering layers for dye-sensitized solar cells, bulk-heterojunction photovoltaics, self assembled optoelectronic devices and photochromic materials.
