Faculty Profile

Professor Andrea Fratalocchi

Department of Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering


Profesor Fratalocchi's research interests focus in the use of disorder as a building block for a new technology, which can benefit from the billenary evolution of natural systems. His vision is to grab the hidden secrets of randomness to unveil novel fundamental processes and a new class of electromagnetic materials that can be assembled on large sizes with minimal costs. Applications of his research include, and are not limited to:
New revolutionary process of energy harvesting
A new class of nanostructures that can be assembled on very large scales and enable functional operations in ultrathin layers
The harnessing of destructive natural phenomena at the nanoscale for the realization of unconventional functionalities for photons
Studying of new complex imaging apparatus
Developing of new “intelligent” lasers.
