Leonardo Viti

Short Bio

Mr. Leonardo Viti received his Master Degree in Physics in 2012 at università di Pisa, Italy. From 2012 to 2016 he was research fellow of the CNR (Nanoscience Institute) at the NEST Laboratory of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, Italy. From 2016 to 2019 he was researcher at CNR-NANO, working on the EU project Graphene Flagship Core I, Core II and the ERC project SPRINT. Since 2020 he is senior researcher at CNR-NANO.

Leonardo Viti co-authored more than 30 publications in peer reviewed journals and more than 30 contributions to international and national conferences, workshops, schools and seminars.

Research Interests

My research activity is focused on the study of low-dimensional semiconductor materials for the realization of terahertz (THz) detectors and optoelectronic devices. In particular, I experimentally investigated the THz light-matter interaction in nanoscale systems: semiconductor nanowires, two and three-dimensional topological insulators, van der Waals 2D materials such as black phosphorus, graphene and hexagonal boron nitride.
