European Graphene Forum 2016 Conference and Exhibition

Speaker's Details

Prof. Giancarlo Faini

Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures- CNRS Paris, France

Giancarlo Faini is in charge of the project and the Director of the future Center for Nanosciences & Nanotechnology (C2N – CNRS/UPSud) that will be open on June 2016. From 2010 to September 2015, he was the Deputy Director of the Institute of Physics of the CNRS, in charge of the Condensed Matter Physics and the Nanosciences.


Senior researcher at the Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures (LPN – CNRS), he defended a PhD thesis in 1988 at the Solid State Laboratory in Orsay University. The subject was the phase diagram investigations of low dimensional Bechgaard’s salts by thermodynamics measurements at very low temperature, using a new original experimental approach developed during this work. He was thus able to investigate the fractional quantum nesting in the organic metal (TMTSF)2ClO4.


Giancarlo’s present research fields of interest are in:

  • Mesoscopic physics with a particular focus on coherence mechanisms in quantum transport properties
  • Nanomagnetism and spintronics in metallic magnetic systems and in diluted magnetic semiconductors, with a focus on coherent quantum mesospintronics
  • Development of new nanofabrication process and approaches
  • Science – Art collaborative projects


Giancarlo Faini is co-author of more than 150 papers in International peer reviewed journals, of one patent and attended more than 30 conferences as invited speaker.
