Filiberto Ricciardella received M.Sc. in Physics from Bari University “Aldo Moro” (Italy) in 2011 and PhD in Novel Technologies for Materials, Sensors and Imaging in 2015 from University of Naples “Federico II” in collaboration with ENEA Research Center Portici. Since the M.Sc. thesis, his scientific activity was focused on both synthesis and investigation of graphene and graphene-based gas sensors operating in environmental conditions, fields where he has gained an experience of more than ten years.
During the PhD and the first postdoctoral activity, performed at Italian Institute of Technology (Genoa, Italy), Filiberto explored Mechanical Exfoliation and Liquid Phase Exfoliation of graphene and other two-dimensional materials (2DMs). During his first postdoc, he also worked on a project in collaboration with an Italian company, focused on graphene and polymers. He acquired experience in many techniques of material characterization such as Raman spectroscopy, Atomic Force Microscopy, photo-spectrophotometric analysis, transmission and scanning electron microscopy.
For the next three years, he worked as a Postdoc Research at TU Delft in the Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM) group, Department of Microelectronics, in collaboration with ASML focusing on fabrication and test of graphene-based membranes for MEMS applications of next generation. He specialized in designing and fabrication of MEMS and CMOS microstructures, based on graphene and multi-layered graphene synthesized by Chemical Vapor Deposition. From June 2019, he joined to Bundeswehr University Munich (Germany), working on growth of graphene and other 2DMs as well as on gas-sensors based on 2DMs.
He is currently Postdoc Research at Electronic Instrumentation group (EI), Department of Microelectronics, investigating advanced silicon-based photodetectors, in collaboration with ASML.
Filiberto authored and co-authored more than 30 publications, holds an international patent, gave two invited talks and more than 10 presentations at national and international conferences in the field of sensors and 2DMs.
