2010 – present
Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) – Genova (Italy)

  • Analysis of crystal structure and composition of nanostructured materials via electron diffraction, HRTEM, EDS, EELS and EFTEM
  • Investigation of the chemical binding of inorganic materials, and their modification upon electrochemical or oxidation reactions, via core-loss EELS 
  • Reconstruction of three-dimensional shape of complex branched or hollow nanostructures, or their assemblies, via HAADF-STEM electron tomography

2008 – 2010

CNR - Institute of Inorganic Methodologies and Plasmas (IMIP) – Bari (Italy)

  • Deposition of polycrystalline diamond thin films via microwave-plasma CVD (MWPCVD) on silicon substrates
  • Analysis of the deposition process and of the resulting diamond thin films using in-situ (pyrometric interferometry) and ex-situ (SEM, AFM, XRD, Raman spectroscopy, photoluminescence, thermoluminescence) techniques
