Guglielmo Lanzani is full professor in Physics at Politecnico di Milano since August 2011. He received his PHD in 1991, from the University of Genova&Pavia. His thesis was on Non linear spectroscopy of conjugated polymers. After Post-Doc in Bologna, he was researcher at University of Sassari till 1999. Form 1999 to 2011 he was Associate Professor in General Physics at Politecnio di Milano. Since December 1st 2009 he is head of the Center for Nano Science and Technology of the Italian Institute of Technology, located in Milan and embedded in Politecnico di Milano. GL has been studying photophysics of conjugated carbon materials (organic semiconductors, polyconjugated compounds and carbon nanotubes) and nanostructures for 20 years, as testified by about180 publications in peer-reviewed journals, more then 60 invited talks at international conferences and institutions, 8 review chapters in books and 3 books as editor. The work is focused on time resolved experiments and dynamics, but also includes cw and slow modulation spectroscopy (Stark-spectroscopy, photoinduced absorption, photoconductivity, microscopy) and device engineering. Applications regards photonics, in particular ultrafast light modulation and laser sources, photodetectors and photovoltaics. He has been involved in 9 european projects, EUROLET, EUROFET, POLYCOM (coordinator), THREADMILL ICARUS and PHOTOFET, OLIMPIA, POCAONTAS and PHOCS. G.Lanzani was chairman of the E-MRS symposium on “Carbon Allotropes” Spring meeting 2009, and of Optical Probe Conference in February 2003. He is chairman of thetopical meeting on “Organic Photonics” held in Paris, 2008, Paris 2010, Abardeen 2012 within the annual European Optical Society meeting, and Diretor of the winter school on optics and energy at ICTP in Trieste, 02/2010.
