Key people involved: Prof. Dr. Paolo Lugli

Professor Lugli conducts research on nanoelectronics and molecular electronics. After completing his studies in physics at the University of Modena (Italy) in 1979, Professor Lugli moved to Colorado State University in Fort Collins (USA) where he received a Master of Science in 1982 and a PhD in 1985, both in electrical engineering. From 1988 to 1993 he was an associate professor of solid state physics in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Rome II where he was appointed professor in 1993. Professor Lugli has held the newly established Chair of Nanoelectronics since 2002.
