ALESSANDRO RICCI - Curriculum Vitae

Alessandro Ricci, born in Rome 27-07-1983 graduated in Physics in Rome in 2008. He has been working in the field of superconductivity and Material science. Since 2007, he is proposer and co-proposer of a lot of experiment at Synchrotron Radiation Facilities like ELETTRA, PSI, HASYLAB and ESRF. His interest has been focused on the physics of high Tc superconductors and functional materials. He is PhD student since November 2008.

He is author of about 14 papers in international Journals and below are shown the 5 most important.
