PhD Student

Research associate on the project involving epitaxy and characterization of novel graphene-like 2D-materials(X-enes) in collaboration with Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca


Gabriele Faraone is a Ph.D. fellow student in Materials Science and Nanotechnology at University of Milan-Bicocca. 

Gabriele got his Master degree in Physics from University of Milan discussing a thesis on the optical and electronic properties of plasmonic metal/semiconductor thin-film nanocomposites (Advisor Dr. M. Di Vece, Co-Advisor Prof. C. Lenardi). During his Master degree, he spent also a 6-months abroad study period in Germany at Technical University of Munich (TUM) (March-September 2014).

His PhD research activity involves optical (Raman, Uv-Vis) spectroscopy, epitaxial-growth (MBE) and surface characterizations (STM and XPS) of novel 2D graphene-like materials(X-enes).  He also completed a 6-months abroad research experience (March-September 2019) in United States, where he has been trained to process 2D X-enes into devices in the Clean-Room facilities of Microelectronic Research Center of the University of Texas-Austin (Prof. Akinwande Nano-Research Group).
