About

His main research activity aims at the biophysical study of biological molecules and macromolecules both in situ and in vitro utilizing almost not perturbative instrumentation and nanostructured model systems. So far, his research deals with the design, realization and utilization of biophysical instrumentation as conventional, confocal and multi-photon fluorescence microscopy, SHG imaging microscopy, FLIM, single molecule imaging, STED nanoscopy. In particular, he developed an original setup for SW 2PE-STED (single wavelength two-photon excitation stimulated emission depletion) super-resolution microscopy and another for SHG (second harmonic generation) combined with 2PEF (2-photon excitation fluorescence) microscopy. He recently applied STED nanoscopy technique to the quantitative study of single molecule diffusion in living cells. Moreover, he is in charge of the scientific management of the Nikon Imaging Center and he is responsible for the partnership with the R&D of Nikon Instruments Japan.
