Profile

Simone Casaluci obtained the Master Degree in Electronic Engineering cum laude at University of Rome "Tor Vergata". His thesis was on: "Study of methods for determination the channel temperature, aimed at analyzing the thermal performance and to study the reliability of GaN-HEMT devices" (Supervisor, Prof. Aldo Di Carlo). He carried out his thesis in the laboratories of SELEX Sistemi Integrati (a Finmeccanica Company) in Rome, Italy.

Currently he is attending the Ph.D. (fellowship holder) in Telecommunications and Microelectronics Engineering (XXVII cycle) at C.H.O.S.E., within the OLAB (Optoelectonic and Nanoelectronic Devices) research group of the Electronics Engineering Department, at University of Rome "Tor Vergata".

 

Research Activity

During my studies at CHOSE lab, I have been involved in studying Perovskite-based solar cells and the all DSSC fabrication process. In particular, my R&D activity has been focused on fabrication of large area module (with optimization of layer deposition), with the aim to industrialize the process. Recently my studies involved finding alternatives to platinum on counter electrode for large-area DSSC, like nanocarbon-based materials as graphene (Graphene Flagship, European Project). Moreover the efforts are concentred to introduce in Perovskite solar devices carbon nanostructures. In general, my studies are oriented to increasing the solar cell efficiency and up-scaling the solar device. I am also interested in investigation of degradation phenomena and stability. His supervisors is Prof. Aldo Di Carlo.
