Marcello Meneghetti

  Marcello is from Mantova, Italy. He obtained a B.Sc in Physics in 2014 and a M.Sc in Physics, with a specialization in Disordered Systems & Nanomaterials, in 2016, both from the University of Trento (Italy).
His M.Sc thesis, ‘Tin dioxide nanocrystals as Er3+ luminescence sensitizers: sol-gel fabrication of transparent glass-ceramics and their characterization’, was written under the supervision of Dr. Maurizio Ferrari and Prof. Giulio Monaco, at the IFN-CNR CSMFO Lab in Trento. During the thesis, which was inserted in the wider field of glass photonics, he has had the occasion of performing various laboratory tasks, gaining experience in the fields of optics and photonics.

In January 2017, he joined the Verres & Céramiques group at the Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes, in France, to conduct his PhD in the framework of the SUPUVIR project, with the main objectives of realizing high quality infrared fibers with tailoring dispersion by combining glass sciences and innovative fiber shaping techniques.
