Stefano Toffanin received his PhD from the University of Padova in 2009 developing his research activity at the Institute of Nanostructured Materials of CNR (CNR-ISMN). He is a permanent researcher at the CNR-ISMN in Bologna. He is currently head of the group of organic photonics and electronics.
His main research interest is the spectroscopic investigation of light-emitting and charge-transport organic systems for use in organic nanostructured opto-electronic devices by means of non-conventional ultrafast optical probes, with special emphasis on the opto-electronic performance of field-effect transistors. He is currently focusing his research activity on organic multifunctional flexible platforms for smart applications in nanophotonics and biodiagnostics.
He is author of more than 50 papers, a monographic book and 4 international patents.
