Research

Alberto Tagliaferro was born in 1957. He got his degree in Nuclear Engineering and his PhD in Physics at Polytechnic of Turin. He is Associate Professor in the Material Science and Chemical Engineering Department of Polytechnic of Turin. He is head of the Carbon Group, a research group founded in 2002. His research interest have moved in recent years from amorphous carbon and its alloys in thin film form to Carbon nanotubes growth and applications (polymer filling, electrical applications, biosensors), and to color detection and reproduction. He is member of the ISO Technical Committee 229 (Nanotechnlogies) and of the Advisory Committee of a number of International Conferences. He is Associate Editor of Diamond and Related Materials, an Elsevier Journal. He is Member of the Advisory Committee of the NSNRC (N. Shankaran Nair Center for Nanotechnology and BioNanotechnology) in Mumbai, India. He is Chair of the Thin Film Division of IUVSTA (International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications).
