Fields of Interest and Expertise

The research activities are focused on the design, fabrication and characterization of devices for optoelectronics and sensors. In particular, scientific activity involves the fabrication and study of the morphological, compositional and electrical properties of devices with sub-micrometric to millimetred- dimensions. Organic thin film transistors based on the use of new materials: organic semiconductors and metal oxide semiconductors have been developed. The sensing structures have been characterized with a multi-dimensional approach based on investigations of microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. The scientific activity is also focused on the development of graphene-based optoelectronic devices for use as modulators in the Terahertz spectral range.

Curriculum Vitae

Cinzia Di Franco graduated in Chemistry -summa cum laude- at the University of Bari in 1999. From April 2000 to March 2003 she joined STMicroelectronics, Research and Development Division, as process engineer, working on single photon avalanche photodiodes. From April 2003, she a researcher of CNR, Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies. Her research interests are in the fields of analytical chemistry, chem- and bio-sensors, surface spectroscopy and nanomaterials. She is presently attending the PhD school in Chemical and Molecular Sciences, under the supervision of prof. Luisa Torsi. She is the author/co-author of more than 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals with impact factor, chapters on International textbooks, and papers on Conference Proceedings books.
