Riccardo Ollearo

PhD Student

I received my B.Sc. degree in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology at Politecnico di Milano in 2015. During my master studies, I did a 9 months internship at Holst Centre (High Tech Campus, Eindhoven), where I focused my research on the fabrication and characterization of flexible ultrasound transducer arrays for mid-air haptic feedback applications. I obtained my M.Sc. degree in Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Engineering in 2018.

In March 2019, I started my PhD in the group of Prof. R.A.J Janssen. My PhD project is focused on perovskite-based photodetectors (PPDs) and it is carried out in collaboration with Holst Centre under the supervision of Prof. Gerwin Gelinck. Our goal is to explore and investigate the use of perovskite material as active material for direct detection of low energy radiation, such as visible and near-infrared light, and high energy radiation, e.g. X-rays.
