Research: Development of infrared 2D- based photodetectors operating at room temperature
Gaetana Petrone (born in Naples, 1986) is a Ph.D. student in Engineering and Applied Science for Energy and Industry at the Department of Astronautical, Electrical and Energy Engineering of the University "La Sapienza" in Rome. Her doctoral research is in collaboration with the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems of the CNR (IMM-CNR).
She earned a Master's degree in Science and Technology of Industrial Chemistry from the University of Naples "Federico II" in 2019 with a thesis entitled "SYNTHESIS, FUNCTIONALIZATION, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF JANUS AND WRINKLED PARTICLES". In her doctoral project, she is involved in the chemical and engineering study of sensors for detecting infrared radiation by coupling two-dimensional materials with existing ones to improve final performance. In addition to the chemical approach, an engineering approach will be pursued using the facilities of the IMM.
