Vittorio M. N. Passaro0000-0003-0802-4464
Vittorio M. N. Passaro was born in Bari, Italy, on November 1962. He received his Laurea degree in electronic engineering (cum laude) and his Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering, curriculum optoelectronics, from University of Bari, Bari, Italy, in 1988 and 1992, respectively. Since October 2000, he has joined Politecnico di Bari as an Associate Professor of Electronic Technologies and Photonics. He is author or coauthor of more than 260 papers published in international journals and conference proceedings. He is the holder of two international patents and the editor of three scientific international books. Since 1988, his research interests have focused on several theoretical and experimental aspects of optoelectronic and photonic technologies and integrated optics. He is involved, often with original contributions, in modeling, design and simulation of a number of integrated optical devices and circuits for optical signal processing, telecommunications, and sensing applications. He has also been involved in dry etching and proton exchange technologies, in particular on the understanding of the physical-chemical mechanisms occurring during the formation of lithium niobate optical waveguides, as well as the relationships with their optical properties. Currently, he is mainly involved in silicon photonics technology. Since 2004 he has formed the Photonics Research Group at Politecnico di Bari (URL : http://dee.poliba.it/photonicsgroup). He serves as referee for a number of international journals and is responsible for many national and international research projects. Dr. Passaro is a member of editorial board of several journals and the Editor-in-Chief of Sensors (MDPI). Finally, he has been a Member of Optical Society of America (OSA), an Associate Member of the National University Consortium of Matter Structure (CNISM) and of the National University Consortium for Telecommunications, and an IEEE Senior Member since 2005.
