Alessandro Romeo

I graduated in Physics at the University of Parma in 1996.

In October 1997 I am appointed as research fellow at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
(ETHZ) in Zurich, CH, and in the same lab I start my PhD work on CdTe thin film solar cells. After my PhD thesis, from February 2002, I worked as post-doc at ETHZ on alternative buffer layers for CIGS thin film solar cells.

In April 2004 I am appointed as assistant professor at the University of Verona,  working on absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and on chalcogenide thin film solar cells.

In December 2013 I got the qualification for Associate Professorship in Experimental Physics and Applied Physics and from December 2014 I am appointed as associate professor at the University of Verona.

I have been invited for several talks and papers, I have been member of the scientific committee for the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 and I have been organizer of the E-MRS Spring Meeting “Thin Film Chalcogenide Solar Cells” Symposium in 2010, in 2012 and in 2014. I am author of more than 80 international publications and of 5 international patents.

Thin Film Solar Cells

The research activity is focused on the material research for photovoltaic applications, nanotechnologies and biophysical studies.

The Laboratory for Applied Physics in Verona is able to provide different characterization and deposition machines like vacuum evaporation, chemical bath deposition, I-V and C-V measurement system, Atomic force microscopy,

Other characterization techniques are available in the university: scanning electron microscopy, micro-raman, x-rady diffraction spectroscopy, etc…

Other activities

Other activities like the analysis of nano-biostructures for bio-medical applications.


The laboratory is equipped with two Atomic Force Microscopes able to study biological structures in air and also in liquid.
It is possible to make in vivo analysis and to study conformation changes in time and in different environments.
