Fulvio Mancarella received a M. Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and a Ph. D. degree in Electronics and Computer Science in 2002 and 2006, respectively, both from Bologna University.
Since 2009 he joined the Institute of Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) of the Italian National Research Council (CNR) as a scientific researcher.
His research interests include technology development for the fabrication of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).
Since 2003 he has been working on the development of infrared thermoelectric transducers for the 3-5 µm atmospheric window fabricated with CMOS-compatible micromachining techniques in the framework of the EU project “NETGAS” (ST-2001-37802-FP5), aiming at the realization of a photoacoustic gas sensing microsystem based on heavly-dopped polysilicon.
Since January 2006, the activities for the development of sensors based on silicon microsystem has been working in the framework of the regional project (LaRIA). The activities have been focused on the development of deep silicon etching by Deep Reactive Ion Etching (D-RIE).
In the same period, he has been working on the fabrication of MEMS resonant strain sensors for structural monitoring applications in the framework of the EUROCORES "Micro-measurement and Monitoring System for Ageing Underground Infrastructures - Underground M3" project funded within S3T Programme (FP6), coordinated by the University of Cambridge.
Since 2007, he has been mainly working in several industrial research project funded by private companies, in the field of technology development for inkjet applications, separation system for micro gas chromatography and a feasibility study aiming at the realization of micro nozzles for biochemical application.
In 2010 he has been working in a feasibility study, funded by private company and in collaboration with Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, aiming at the develop of silicon-based nanostructured thermoelectric devices for power harvesting application.
Since 2012 he has been working on the development of silicon photonics devices for DataCom application in the framework of FIRB project “MINOS” (Dispositivi fotonici micro- e nano-strutturati basati su silicio deformato per commutazione ultra-rapida in applicazioni datacom).
In the same period, he has been working of the fabrication of power microgeneration and storage devices, in the framework of European Project (FP7-NMP-2013-SMALL-7) ”SiNERGY” (Silicon friendly materials and device solutions for microenergy applications).
