Speaker's Details

Prof. Gavioli Luca

Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy

Prof. Gavioli obtained his PhD. in Physics in 1997 working on metal/semiconductor interfaces. His post-doc experience at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN, USA) and at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne was centered on 2D systems. In the 2001-2013 period, he worked as tenure track researcher at the Università Cattolica on different subjects:

  • Alkali metals on semiconductors
  • Organic molecules and fullerenes on vicinal metal surfaces
  • Carbon based nanostructured systems
  • Self assembled metal clusters on titanium oxide templates
  • Synthesis of nanomaterials by non thermal laser ablation

He became professor in 2014, and his research interested moved to the synthesis and characterization of nanogranular materials. In particular, the research lines are dealing with:

  • Mechanical properties of nanogranular materials
  • nanomaterials for catalysis, photocatalysis, sensors
  • Antibacterial and antivirus materials

He is the founder and deputy director of the “International Doctoral Program in Science”, established in 2016 among the Università Cattolica, KU Leuven (Belgium), the University of Notre Dame (Indi-ana, USA) and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile (Chile).
