Fabrication of memristive devices using standard and innovative fabrication methods.


Jacopo Frascaroli is a Post-Doc fellow at IMM-CNR, Unit of Agrate Brianza (Italy). He was born in Bologna (Italy) on 9 May 1987 and received the PhD at the University of Milano in Jenuary 2016.
Jacopo Frascaroli obtained the Bachelor degree in Physics at the University of Bologna in 2009 and received the Master Degree in Physics at the same university in 2011 (110/110 cum Laude), discussing a thesis on X-ray absorption spectroscopy of silicon nanowires. During the Master degree, he spent five months at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France). This period was funded with a scholarship granted by the Science Faculty of Bologna.
After graduation, JF won a post-graduate fellowship at the IMM-CNR (Laboratory MDM) in Agrate Brianza (Italy) located c/o the ST Microelectronics industrial site and continued his research activity on the synthesis and characterization of thin films and nanostructured materials. During this period, he worked in the framework of the European project NANOPV for the improvement of the efficiency of silicon solar cells.
JF began the PhD in Physics, Astrophysics and Applied Physics at the University of Milano in November 2012 with a project focused on the realization of nanostructured memory devices using innovative lithographic processes based on Block Copolymer technology. The research project encompassed a collaboration between the Physics department and the MDM Laboratory, and was funded with a research scholarship by the Italian Metrology Institute (INRiM) of Torino (Italy) for the application of Block copolymer templates as metrological standards. As part of the PhD research project, Jacopo Frascaroli acquired a wide expertise on the microelectronic processes and on the fabrication equipment located in the clean room laboratory, as well as on the electrical, chemical and morphological characterization of the fabricated samples.

Jacopo Frascaroli participated to 5 international conferences with 4 oral and 2 poster contributions and is author of 8 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, in 4 of which he appears as first author.
In 2013, he participated to the three weeks long European School On Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies (ESONN), with both practical and classroom activities organized in Grenoble (France) by several top level French institutions and with contributions from internationally recognized personalities in the nanotechnology research field.
In 2013, Jacopo Frascaroli was selected from the University of Milano for participation to the 2013 Bright Conference held jointly by the Universities of Freiburg (Germany) and Strasbourg (France) in the framework of the League of European Research Universities (LERU).
