Giorgio Pettinari is a researcher at the Institute of Photonics and Nanotechnologies of the National Research Council of Italy. He got a PhD in Materials Science from Sapienza University of Rome (Italy, 2008) and was an Assistant Researcher at High Field Magnet Laboratory of the Radboud University of Nijmegen (The Netherlands, 2009-2011) and a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham (UK, 2011-2013). His interests range from the experimental investigation of semiconductor nanostructures to micro- and nano-fabrication and investigation of innovative photonic and plasmonic devices. Recently, he developed a novel strategy for the post-growth fabrication of site-controlled, single-photon emitting quantum dots.
Dr. Pettinari published more than 40 peer-reviewed original papers in academic journals (among which 2 invited review papers), 2 invited book chapters, and he given more than 20 oral contributions and seminars (7 invited) at international conferences and research institutes.
