Prof. Dr. Parmigiani Fulvio
APS Fellow and ELETTRA Fellow
Professor Emeritus - University of Trieste
In 1973 he receives the degree of Doctor in Physics (Laurea) at the University of Milan. In 1976 he is with the quantum electronic division of CISE, Segrate (Milan) studying the optical and electronic properties of metal clusters. From 1984-1985 he is visiting scientist at the IBM Research Center of San José, CA., working on the electronic structure of supported metal clusters and metallic layers grown under non-equilibrium conditions. In the meantime he started an experimental activity on the physics of strongly correlated electron systems and HTSCs. From 1989 to 1990, he returns, as visiting scientist, to the IBM Almaden Research Center, CA.(USA). In 1994 he obtains the full professorship in experimental physics at the Polytechnic of Milan and he works on the dynamics of non-equilibrium electron gas in metals. During the years 1997- 2004 he is professor of condensed matter at the faculty of Science of the Catholic university. From 2004 to present he is professor of condensed matter at the department of physics of the Università degli Studi of Trieste. In 1998 he is national coordinator of the INFM/PRA “Elphos” project to study the dynamics of electronic processes in condensed matter in the sub-ps domain and team-leader of the beamline BACH on the Elettra Synchrotron. In 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005 and 2008 he is national coordinator of the MIUR-PRIN projects on femtosecond time-resolved experiments. From 2001 to the present he is associate with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CA., contributing to the science cases of LUX, BELLA and NGLS projects, respectively a X-ray FEL system based on a recirculating LINAC, a X-ray pulsed source based on laser-driven plasma acceleration and a 1 MHz superconducting LINAC for operating ten parallel seeded FELs. In 2003 he starts to coordinate the scientific case for the FERMI FEL at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, becoming head of the scientific program up to the present. At the present his major scientific interests are in the fields of non-equilibrium physics, photo-induced phase transitions and spectroscopies of strongly electron-correlated systems, magnetic materials and novel emerging materials. In 2012 he is awarded with the Zernike Chair at the Zernike Institute of the University of Groningen (the Netherlands). From 2013 he is honorary professor at the Zernike Institute of the University of Groningen (the Netherlands). For the academic years 2013-2017 he is appointed visiting professor of Condensed Matter at the International Faculty of the University of Cologne (Germany). In 2013 he is appointed fellow of the American Physical Society. He is author or co-authored 270+ articles on the most prestigious journals of physics such as, Science, Nature Materials, Nature Photonics, Nature Communications, Nano-Letters, Scientific Science Advance, PRL, APL and PRB. From 2006 he is editor of Nuclear Instruments and Methods In Physics Research (A) and from 2012 he is editor of Physics Letters Reports.
