Assistant Professor in the University of Rome Tor Vergata
Francesca Brunetti received the Laurea degree in electronics engineering (cum laude) with a thesis on organic transistors from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Rome, Italy, in 2001 and the Ph.D. degree in telecommunications and microelectronics from the same University in 2005. From 2005-2006 she worked as Marie Curie Fellow with a project on organic photodetectors in the Institute for Nanoelectronics of the Technical University of Munich, Germany implementing nanofabrication processes based on the use of nanoimprint lithography.
In 2006 she became a Research Assistant in the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Rome “Tor Vergata,” Rome. In the same year she cofounded the Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy, Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. Her research activity is focused on the analysis, design and manufacture of electronic and optoelectronic devices through the use of nanomaterials and organic semiconductors. She is involved in the study of carbon nanotube based vacuum diodes and triodes, organic thin-film transistors, organic bulk heterojunction and perovskite solar cells. She has authored over 50 publications including 5 patents
