Scientific profiles



Antonio DI BARTOLOMEO is a full professor of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics and president of the Physics Education Committee at the University of Salerno, Italy where he teaches semiconductor device physics and nanoelectronics.

His present research interests include optical and electrical properties of nanostructured materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, and 2D materials, van der Waals heterostructures and Schottky junctions, field-effect transistors, non-volatile memories, solar cells, photodetectors, and field emission devices.

He received the Ph.D. in Physics in 1997 from Salerno University where he held the position of researcher in Experimental Physics before the appointment as a professor. His scientific career started at CERN (CH) with the collaboration on experiments on neutrino oscillations and heavy-ion collisions. He spent several years in the industry as a semiconductor device engineer (ST Microelectronics, Infineon Technologies, and Intel Corporation) and was a guest scientist at IHP-Microelectronics (Germany) and Georgetown University (Washington, DC).

He has given about 90 presentations in international conferences and has authored over 150 publications in peer-reviewed journals, two physics textbooks, and two patents. He is serving as the editor-in-chief of IOP Nano Express, the session editor-in-chief MDPI Nanomaterials, and the deputy editor-in-chief of IET Nano & Micro Letters, and is an Editorial Board member of several journals.
