Professor Angelo Monguzzi received the master degree in Physics in 2005 and the PhD in Materials Science in 2008 at the University of Milano-Bicocca. Its research mainly concerns the study of the photophysics of organic molecular semiconductors for optical and optoelectronic applications by meaning of optical spectroscopy. He started his research by working on new hybrid organic/inorganic light emitters and organic photonic crystals for lighting and telecom, in the framework of several national and international project and networks. The main topic of the current research is the study of triplet-triplet annihilation assisted up-conversion of non-coherent photons, recently observed in a family of multicomponent organic systems with the aim to apply this this effect for the improvement of light harvesting of photovoltaic and photocatalytic devices. He is author or co-author of more than 60 scientific papers, and in 2009 has been awarded by the Italian Society of Physics. In 2014 it has been Fellow of the Japan Society of the Promotion of Science and worked at the University of Kyushu in Fukuoka, Japan. The same year he has been awarded by the Center for Scientific Culture A.Volta and Edison S.p.A with the “F. Somaini – Physics 2014” scholarship for international research projects. He works as associate professor of experimental condensed-matter physics at the Materials Science Department of the Università degli Studi Milano-Bicocca in Milano, Italy.
