Luca Maiolo received the Master degree in Physics in 2003 and the Ph.D. on “Realization and characterization of polysilicon based electronic devices on ﬂexible substrates for electronics on plastic” in 2008, both from “Università degli studi di RomaTre”. In the biennium 2004-2005 he was a research assistant at Institute for Photonics and Nanotechnologies, working on fabrication and electrical characterization of polycrystalline thin film transistors for large area electronics applications. In 2009 he joined to Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department of Italian Institute of Technology in Genova, as post-doctoral fellow, where he developed and tested tactile flexible sensors for humanoid robot. Currently, he works as researcher at the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the National Research Council (CNR-IMM). His activity is mainly focused on fabrication and characterization of smart systems and innovative sensors based on nanostructures integrated on ultrathin ﬂexible substrates.
