About the

Andrea Fratalocchi

Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

Andrea Fratalocchi
Profesor Fratalocchi's research interests focus in the use of disorder as a building block for a new technology, which can benefit from the billenary evolution of natural systems. His vision is to grab the hidden secrets of randomness to unveil novel fundamental processes and a new class of electromagnetic materials that can be assembled on large sizes with minimal costs. Applications of his research include, and are not limited to:
  • New revolutionary process of energy harvesting
  • A new class of nanostructures that can be assembled on very large scales and enable functional operations in ultrathin layers
  • The harnessing of destructive natural phenomena at the nanoscale for the realization of unconventional functionalities for photons
  • Studying of new complex imaging apparatus
  • Developing of new “intelligent” lasers

Desired Project Deliverables

​Learning of different nanofabrication techniques; assembly of complex materials​ structures for different photonics applications
