Antonio Ambrosio

Senior Researcher Tenured - Principal Investigator
Vectorial Nano-imaging
Research center

Antonio Ambrosio holds a Master degree in Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Naples Federico II and a PhD degree in Applied Physics from the University of Pisa.

From December 2007 to June 2016, Antonio was researcher at the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche. In April 2013, Antonio became Visiting Research Scholar of the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences of the Harvard University, collaborating with the group of Prof. Federico Capasso in building a nano-imaging spectroscopic facility that allowed imaging of the steered surface plasmon polaritons in one- and two-dimensional metamaterials.

Between July 2016 and August 2019, Antonio was Principal Scientist at the Center for Nanoscale Systems at Harvard where he has continued his research activities in nano-photonics.

From September 2019, Antonio is PI of the research line named Vectorial Nano-imaging at the Center for Nano Science and Technology (CNST) of IIT in Milan, dedicated to the development of metasurface-based optical nano-devices and new optical near-field imaging and spectroscopy techniques for 2D materials, polymers and nanostructured surfaces.

Antonio is member of the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports and Optics Express. He is member of the Materials Research Society and SPIE, and Senior Member of The Optical Society of America.
