Carmine Granata (permanent researcher of CNR)
Carmine Granata (male) was born on 1968 in Naples, Italy. He received the doctoral degree in Physics from the University “Federico II” of Naples, Italy, in 1994. Since from 2001 is a permanent research of the Institute of Applied Physics and Intelligent Systems of National Research Council (CNR). He holds the national enabling as an associate professor of experimental condensed matter Physics (2014-2020). The research activity of C.G. is mainly devoted to the experimental study of Josephson junctions and SQUIDs (Superconducting QUantum Interference Device), based on low critical temperature superconductors. In particular he works in the field of design, fabrication and characterization at low temperature (4.2 K- 50 mK) of dc-SQUID and rf-SQUID devices for applications in biomagnetism, magnetic microscopy, geophysic, astrophysics, quantum computation and nanomagnetism. C.G. was the principal investigator of several national research projects and has worked in several national and international research projects. During his scientific activity, C.G. has published about 130 scientific publications on international reviews and volumes and he contributed to several national and international conferences as invited speaker.
During the years 2001-2007 and 2009-2010 he has been Professor in Physics at the Second University of Naples. C.G. has been also a member of many Competition Commissions. He was supervisor of two thesis in electronic engineering and two Ph.D thesis in the framework “Ph.D of international research in Innovative Technologies for Materials, Sensors and Imaging (TIMSI)” (University of Naples “Federico II). C.G. delivered at University of Naples “Federico II a specialist course “SQUID sensors: principles of operation, fabrication and applications” for TIMSI Ph.D students.
