Filippo Fabbri

Short Bio

Dr. Filippo Fabbri is a permanent research scientist Istituto Nanoscienze of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Pisa (Italy) since 2018. Dr. Fabbri obtained his Ph.D in Physics  at Alma Mater Studiorum University of Bologna, with a thesis focused on the electrically active defects in wide band-gap semiconductors. He was previously at the Istituto dei Materiali per l’Elettronica e il Magnetismo of CNR (IMEM-CNR) in Parma and at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Pisa (CNI-IIT). He has been visiting scientist at National Institute of Material Science (Tsukuba, Japan) and at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, USA), focusing on the cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and imaging at the nanoscale of semiconducting materials. He was project leader in the “2D Materials for the future: fundamental properties at the atomic scale” project in collaboration with the RDEC laboratory of the U.S. Army, in the framework of the Broad Agency Announcement of the Army Research Laboratory. He had an active role in the framework of the Graphene Flagship project, work-package “Enabling Materials”, for the development of novel van der Waals heterostructures for optoelectronic applications. He has authored more than 100 articles on international journals (with an h-index = 24), and several seminars and talks to national and international conferences.

Research Interests

The main research interests include optical spectroscopies, as Raman, photoluminescence and cathodoluminescence spectroscopies, scanning electron microscopy, with a particular focus on 2D materials. One of the main research aspect is the evaluation of the effect of point- and extended defects on the optical and transport properties of 2D materials with a particular focus on the defects engineering for obtaining novel properties, as single photon emission. He has several fruitful collaborations with industrial partners (Horiba Scientific and Attolight AG among the others) for the development of novel optical spectroscopic techniques with nanoscale spatial resolution.
