has performed his physics diploma and master studies at the University
of Rome " La Sapienza" where he graduated as a master of science in
physics. At that time Giovanni worked on nano electrodes for molecular
electronics at the Italian research centre ENEA - Casaccia near Rome.
One of the techniques used for the fabrication of nano-electrodes was
Pulsed Laser Ablation.
After receiving his degree he decided to join GLADNET as a Marie Curie RTN early stage researcher working for Tofwerk AG in Thun Switzerland, on coupling laser ablation and glow discharges. More information about his research project is available on the Gladnet website.
Giovanni together with Aranka Derzsi contributed to the
optics part of The Spectroscopy Net
