Fabrizio Giorgis obtained his M.S. degree in physics in 1991 and the Ph.D. degree in solid state physics in 1996. He served as a Researcher at the Italian National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM) from 1998 to 2000, Assistant Professor at the Physics Department and Materials Science Departments of Polytechnic of Torino from 2001 to 2010, Associate Professor of Physics of Condensed Matter since January 2011 at the Physics Department of Polytechnic of Torino, where he gives lectures on general physics, characterization and technological processes, physics of materials for electronics and materials for optics and photonics. His research activity basically deals with (i) fabrication and characterization of Si-based microcavities and photonic crystals, (ii) synthesis and characterization of plasmonic nanostructures, (iii) growth and characterization of Si-based thin films semiconductors and insulators in amorphous, micro- and polycrystalline phase, (iv) applications of semiconductor thin films in light emitting devices and detectors, (v) process and characterization of crystalline SiC with applications such as Schottky diodes and FETs, (vi) Si and SiC-based micro- electromechanical Systems (MEMS), (vii) nanofabrication technology and optical spectroscopy devoted to the analysis of biological systems. Giorgis is author and coauthor of more than 130 scientific papers published on peer-reviewed international journals; referee of the most important papers concerning with physics of condensed matter. He serves as a supervisor of several M.S. and Ph.D. students and scientific responsible of Postdoc and tenure-track researchers. He is involved (as principal coordinator or responsible for Polytechnic of Torino) in national and international projects with industries, research centers, and academic institutions.
