Profile Summary

My research activity focuses on the study of photosensitive materials, mainly photopolymers and photochromic materials, for the application in volume phase holographic optical elements. The activity starts from the design of the material and goes to the realization of a proof of concept device. Vibrational spectroscopy (IR and Raman), UV visible spectroscopy and spectral reflectance are commonly used to characterize the new materials.
Moreover, I am involved in the design and manufacturing of dispersing elements for astronomical spectrographs belonging to the class of Volume Phase Holographic Gratings (VPHGs). A dedicated RGB holo lab is available for this taks.
I am also involved in the design of dielectric optical coatings for astronomical instrumentation operating in the optical and infrared spectral ranges.
