Research activity

Since April 2007 he is working on the development of femtosecond fiber lasers based systems for biomedicine and environmental applications: frequency-comb based technologies (suitable for fast and real-time detection of trace amounts of molecular species) and video rate CARS/SRS (Coherent Anti-stokes Raman Scattering / Stimulated Raman Scattering) spectro-microscopy systems.
He also works as professor assistant at the course of Experimental Physics A+B and takes part in several international conferences and schools concerning organic semiconductors and nano-structured materials.
To his credit, he has some important publications in international reviews and a patent for an organic device for near-UV ultrafast pulses characterization.


Alessio Gambetta was born in Milan on the 27th of February, 1975. He received the Electronic Engineering degree from the Politecnico di Milano in 2003, with a study program mainly focused on Optoelectronics and Photonics. In March 2007 he concluded his doctoral program in Physics at the Politecnico di Milano, his research activity being focused in the field of ultrafast spectroscopy and characterization of optoelectronic devices based on organic semiconductors and nanoscale materials. During the Ph.D. he also spent a year-long period, at the Physics Department of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UTAH, working, as visiting student, on ultrafast spectroscopy of platinum doped polymers.
Starting from november 2011 and after 4 years of post-doctoral fellowship, he joins the solid state laser group headed by Paolo Laporta as a permanent researcher.
