Dr. Michele Perego from MDM Laboratory

Michele Perego received the Degree in Physics from Università degli Studi dell'Insubria in 1999. In February 2004, he obtained his PhD in Physics, applied Physics and Astrophysics from Università degli Studi di Milano for his work on the ToF-SIMS characterization of silicon nanocrystals embedded in thin oxide films. In the period 2004-2007 he has been Post-Doctoral Fellow at the MDM Laboratory in Agrate Brianza where he has been working as research scientist since 2007. He is currently the coordinator of a research group working on the development of new bottom-up approaches for the synthesis of functional nanostructured materials with typical feature dimension below 20 nm. The focus of his research activity is on one side the investigation of fundamental issues related to the self-assembly processes in polymeric films and on the other side the use of these macromolecules to prepare and manipulate functional nanostructures for microelectronics, optoelectronics and photovoltaic applications.
