Primary activity: Experimental study of high performance microwave activated chemical reactors (CNR patents are pending) and their use for the preparation of metal nanoparticle, nanocatalysts, polymers, azo-dye in water destruction, microwave assisted photochemical and ultrasonochemical reactions. Design and construction of nonradiative waveguides in the THz frequency region (CNR patent ). Construction of advanced coaxial microwave devices for the surgical thermoablation of tumors (a new CNR patent). Assistant in department activities for the transfer of exploitation rights of CNR patents dealing with industrial innovative technologies.



Main experiences acquired: Techniques of experimental spectroscopy at microwave frequencies, mm-waves, far infrared, infrared and visible-uv, also applied to the detection of surface palsmon resonances of nanometal particles during their formation.. Skill in design and use of whispering-gallery dielectric resonators for spectroscopic applications in the evanescent field. Knowledge and practice in the use of instruments and systems for the generation, propagation and utilization of high power microwaves, in continuous wave or pulsed regime up to 8 kW, in the frequency range permitted for industrial applications. Experience in the thermal interaction between microwaves and biological tissues in vivo. Experience in the microwave controlled thermal activation of chemical and physical processes for innovative applications.
