Biography

Paolo Maria Sberna was born in Palermo (Italy) in 1987. In 2009 he received the bachelor degree in physics (cum laude) at the University of Catania (Italy) with a thesis on Bose-Einstein condensation. In 2011 he received the master degree in physics (cum laude) at the University of Catania with the thesis: “Quantum confinement effects on Si nano-crystals observed with Raman spectroscopy”. In 2015, he completed the PhD, at the University of Catania and partly at the NOVA University of Lisbon (Portugal), with the thesis: “Novel Approaches to Photoactive Nano-structured Materials for Efficient Solar Cells”. From May 2015 he is working at TU Delft. The topic covered during the first two year has been low-temperature Si thin-film transistors fabrication by solution-processing. From 2017 he is working on III-V photoconductive antennas for THz applications in the group of Prof. A. Neto. His specialties are Solid State Physics, Material Science, Chemistry and Micro-fabrication.
