Profile Summary

Francesco Chiavaioli received the MEng degree summa cum laude in 2008 and got the PhD in Information Engineering in 2012 from the University of Siena (Italy). From 2013 to 2018, he worked as post-doc and fixed-term researcher at the Institute of Applied Physics “Nello Carrara” of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-IFAC). His main activity focused on the design and characterization of optical fiber sensors, especially those based on optical fiber gratings (FBG and LPG). In 2015-2016, he spent six months as visiting scientist at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO, Barcelona, Spain) working in the design and characterization of graphene-based nanocavities, optical modulators and nanostructures in general. From December 2018, he is a permanent researcher at CNR-IFAC. His research activity is focused on: fiber-based probes for the detection of bile and pH; whispering gallery mode (WGM) micro-resonators; Plasmonic optical biosensors; Lossy Mode Resonance (LMR) fiber-optic devices; Bloch surface wave biosensors; Optical high-performance platforms for the detection of biomolecules; Optical systems for neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease); and Novel in-fiber nanostructures.
He was awarded by CNR for the 2017 Short Term Mobility call as scientific person-in-charge for the detection campaign entitled "Detection of Alzheimer's tau protein using nanocoated fiber biosensors". He is actively working in several European projects (ERANET Transnational call 2018-2021), with a number of International collaborations. He was awarded as "Outstanding Reviewer Recognition" by IEEE and OSA in 2018 and 2019, respectively. He is author of more than 50 ISI peer-reviewed publications in International Journals and Conference Proceedings. He gave some invited lectures (Porto, 2015, and Nottingham, 2019) about fiber-optic resonance sensors and 5 invited talks. He is member of OSA, IEEE, EOS and SIOF.
