Elti Cattaruzza has been a Researcher at the Department of Molecular Sciences and Nanosystems, Università Ca' Foscari Venezia, Italy, since 2005, and a Researcher at the Italian National Institute for the Physics of Matter (INFM), since 1998. He did a postdoctoral fellowship at the Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy. He received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy, and a degree in physics (Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy) with the valuation of 110/110 summa cum laude. His research activity is mainly concerned with the preparation and characterization of nanocluster composite glasses by ion implantation, ion exchange, and rf sputtering deposition; preparation and characterization of rare earth-doped glasses by ion implantation, ion exchange, and rf sputtering deposition; physics and chemistry of diffusion and aggregation processes of metals in glass; linear and nonlinear optical characterization of thin films; and X-ray absorption experiments using a synchrotron radiation source. Moreover, he has collaborated with foreign institutions, namely, Vanderbilt University (Nashville, USA, as a Visiting Scientist), CSNSM (Orsay, France), Moscow State University (Moscow, Russia), and Central Glass Laboratory (Calcutta, India). He has been a main proposer of (and/or participant to) 28 experiments at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble. Cattaruzza is a referee for 23 international journals in the fields of materials science, physics, and optics. He is the (co)author of about 120 publications, 108 of which in international refereed journals, and a coauthor of 2 contributions in encyclopedias on nanocluster composite glasses. His h-index is 24 (ISI Web of Knowledge and Scopus).
