Silvana Mercone is an Associate Professor of the LSPM-CNRS laboratory at University of Paris 13th. She obtained the “Italian Laurea” in Solid State Physics at University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2000 and her PhD sponsored by Marie Curie fellowship (EC) in Material Science in 2003 at the University of Caen (Normandy, France) - Laboratory CRISMAT. She became Assistant professor in 2006 after 3 years of post-graduate fellowships. She has mainly worked on magnetic of complex nanostructures (thin films and devices, nanoparticles and nanowires) focusing on the coupling between the crystallographic properties and their magnetic and transport behavior (magnetic phase separation (AFM-FM), metal-to-insulator transition, magnetoresistance). She has a good experience and knowhow on a broad number of experimental technics allowing the full study of the static and dynamic magnetic behaviour of complex magnetic materials (SANS and Polarized Neutron Reflectivity for magnetic phase homogeneity investigation, Broadband ferromagnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance, SQUID, VSM).
