• Associate Professors

    Mauro Mosca

    Prof. Mauro Mosca is the head of TFL (with Roberto Macaluso). He graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1996 and received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Palermo, Italy, in 2000. He spent two postdoctoral years with Thales (Central Research Laboratory), Orsay, France, working on AlGaN-based solar blind MSM detectors. He then joined the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland where he worked on GaN-based optical sources and detectors. Since 2005 he has been Assistant Professor at University of Palermo. From 2015 to 2018 he was also visiting scientist at EPFL, Switzerland.
    Currently, he is appointed as Associate Professor of Electronics and Optoelectronic Devices at University of Palermo.
    His present research interests include: pulsed laser deposition of oxide films, optoelectronic properties of ZnO, and GaN-based light-emitting diodes.

  • Assistant Professors

    Roberto Macaluso

    Dr. Roberto Macaluso is the head of TFL (with Mauro Mosca). He gained his master degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Palermo, Italy, in 1999 and received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from the University of Strathclyde, UK, in 2003, working on GaInNAs-based microcavity structures for advanced data-communication devices. He then moved to Infineon Technologies AG (Corporate Research Photonics), Munich, Germany, working on processing and fabrication of novel laser-modulator devices based on InGaAlAs-InP multi quantum wells structures for data transmission beyond 40 Gbit/s. In 2006 he was appointed as assistant professor at the University of Palermo (Department of Electrical, Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering), Italy. His current research interests include design, fabrication and characterization of ZnO and HfO2-based resistive switching memory devices, pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and characterization of semiconductor oxides (e.g. ZnO) and dielectrics (e.g. Nb2O5) for the realization of optoelectronics and electronics devices, fabrication and characterization of organic MOSFETs. He currently teaches Nanoelectronics (Master degree in Electronics Engineering) and Digital Electronics (Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering).

  • Retired Professors

    Claudio Calì

    Prof. Claudio Calì graduated in Electronic Engineering in 1975 at University of Palermo and in the same year became Assistant Professor. He spent two years (1980-1981) as a Visiting Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) and belonged to the temporary staff of the Lincoln Laboratory at M.I.T. from November 1986 to February 1987. In 1985 he was appointed as Associate Professor of Electronics at University of Palermo, and in 1990 Full Professor. He was Group Leader (Palermo Working Unit) of Gruppo Nazionale di Elettronica Quantistica e Plasmi (GNEQP), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), and Istituto Nazionale di Fisica della Materia (INFM). He was head of the Electronic Engineering Academic Council from 1992 to 1998 and from 2007 to 2013, and head of the Department of Electrical, Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering of the University of Palermo, from 2004 to 2007. Since 2016, he has been in retirement but continues to collaborate with TFL on projects, publications and different activities.
