Short Bio

Luca De Stefano heads a research team in the fields of biophotonics and optical microsystems for biochemical and optoelectronic sensing. Main topics are the fabrication and characterization of porous silicon based photonic devices; the design and realization of hybrid devices based on bio/non-bio interfaces between polymeric and plasmonic nanoparticles for sensing applications in medical and environmental fields. He presented his work to more than 250 national and international conferences, many of which (>30) he has been invited to. He is author or co-author of more than 180 scientific articles published on peer reviewed journals, more than 70 conference proceedings, and nine between books and book chapters. He currently has a H-index of 44 and more than 5600 citations indexed by Google Scholar (Hi=39, 4200 citations by SCOPUS). He holds one European patent, three international patents and ten Italian patents. He is coordinator of the Workgroup on Optical Biosensors and Biophotonics and vice-president (2021-22) of The Optical and Photonic Italian Society (SIOF), and member of the European Optical Society (EOS). He is reviewer for many high impact factors scientific journals: Nature Communications, Scientific Reports, Applied Physics Letters, Optics Letters, Optics Express, Small, Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Nano, Biosensors and Bioelectronics. He tutored six PhD thesis and more than thirty master thesis.
