|LINEAR AND NONLINEAR SCATTERING FROM ENGINEERED NANODEVICES
The main research topic deals with describing linear and nonlinear scattering from metallic, dielectric and phase transition nanoparticles. In the first part of the research activity switching from the dielectric to the metallic phase is exploited to change the linear scattering of linear wire antennas. By exploiting VO2 metal-insulator phase transitions we intend to demonstrate how to control the scattering cross section of optical nanoantennas.

Andrea Tognazzi received the Bachelor and Master degree in Physics from Catholic University of Sacred Heart (Brescia) in 2015 and 2017, respectively. His Master’s thesis topic was “Ultrafast processes in nanoengineered functional materials”; During this project he performed time resolved optical measurements and simulated the optical response to study heat propagation in transition metal oxides heterostructure and phonon echo in cellulose films. Andrea is currently a Ph.D candidate in Information and Telecommunication Engineering at University of Brescia with the Electromagnetic Fields and Photonics group. His research is focusing on nonlinear optical effects in nanostructures.
