    Personal information

     

    Nationality Italian

    Date of birth 08 March 1980

     

    Work experience

     

    Dates From September 2008 to February 2012

    Employer Istituto Nazionale di Ottica - CNR -- Largo Enrico Fermi 6, 50125, Firenze, Italy.

    Sector Optics Research Center

    Position Associated member

    Activities I collaborated to different research projects concerning:

    • Neural Networks: numerical (MatLab an Berkeley-Madonna algorithms) and analog (OrCad electronic board planning) implementation of networks based on chaotic oscillators reproducing neural dynamics. Data analysis (OriginPro and MatLab) for chaos control and synchronization purposes.

    • Laser Dynamics: characterization and analysis of the chaotic behavior in the modulated CO2 laser . Experiments and numerical simulations concerning the control of bursting, bistability and synchronization have been performed.

    • Interferometry: interferometric and adaptive interferometric techniques developed by means of different laser sources (CO2, DPSS, He-Ne). Planning (including mechanical parts in AutoCad), implementation and alignment of interferometers for measurements in transmission and reflection.

    • Holographic Microscopy: holographic microscope implementation for refraction index measurements. Numerical 3D reconstruction of holograms (MatLab algorithms). That technique has been applied on organic components and on different materials (measurements have been performed on apical roots and on diffraction gratings induced in a polymer (PMMA) by means of a femtosecond laser).

    Employer Istituto Nazionale di Ottica - CNR -- Largo Enrico Fermi 6, 50125, Firenze, Italy.

    Sector Optics Research Center

    Position Collaborator

    Activities Project work developed in collaboration with the INO departments of Florence and Naples, concerning the Infrared Digital Holography (IDH) (part of the European project “Real 3D”). An innovative technique which allows to record and reconstruct holograms of large objects has been performed. Numerical algorithms (MatLab) permit phase and amplitude digital reconstruction of the acquired holograms. The visible reconstruction has been obtained implementing an optical set up with a green laser (DPSS). Further development concerns the resolution improvement of the reconstructed images by means of stitching algorithms. The technique has been successfully tested also in poor visibility conditions.
