Antonio De Luca's Biosketch

ant 2Antonio De Luca obtained his M.Sc in Physics from the University of Calabria (UNICAL) in 1999. In the same year he received a Post-graduate scholarship from INFM (National Institute for the Physics of Matter) on the field of “Realization of a software to control the laser pulse length”. In 2005 he obtained his Ph.D in Physics with a dissertation on “Nonlinear Optical Propagation in Liquid Crystals: Spatial Solitons and Organic Micro-Lasers”. In the same period he obtained a three years Post-Doctoral fellowship in UNICAL, that was stopped for a senior Post-Doctoral period at Case Western Reserve University (CASE), where he passed one year in the group of Prof. Charles Rosenblatt (2007-2008), working on liquid crystals interactions at the nanoscale. In 2009 he obtained a research fellowship at CNR-IPCF, as a key-personnel of a European Project titled “METACHEM - Nanochemistry and self-assembly routes to metamaterials for visible light”. In 2010 he got a position as Assistant Professor at University of Calabria in Applied Physics. In 2012 and 2013 he spent a total one-year period at CASE University as Senior Research Associate, and in 2014 he obtained the actual position as Associate Professor of Applied Physics at UNICAL, Physics Department. He actually is also a member of CNR-NANOTEC Institute, working in the fields of Hyperbolic Metamaterials, Exciton-Plasmon coupling and Nano-Photonics. He has authored and co-authored more than 90 papers on international journals, 2 international patents and about 40 communications to scientific conferences. Moreover, he was the Principal Investigator of a National Project PRIN 2102 funded for three years, titled “Gain-Plasmon Coupling in Metal-Dielectric Nanostructures: Loss Compensation towards Laser Action” (2014 – 2017). President of the Association "NanoPlasm", that is responsible for organizing the International Conference titled with the same name. He chaired the three editions of the International Conference NanoPlasm – New Frontiers in plasmonics and Nano-Optics, held in Cetraro (CS) – Italy. During his career, he has supervised more than 10 Master thesis students, 2 Ph.D and 2 Post-Doc fellows.
