Prof. Giancarlo Faini
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.
