Luca Mascaretti

Dr. Luca Mascaretti graduated in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology at Politecnico di Milano, Italy, in 2014 and, at the same Institution, earned his PhD in Energy and Nuclear Science and Technology in 2018. Afterwards, he moved to RCPTM as a post-doctoral researcher. His work there is related to the fabrication and the optical characterization of TiN-based nanomaterials with plasmonic properties and their application in solar energy conversion processes. In particular, his latest activities involve the study of TiN nanotube arrays decorated with catalytic nanoparticles as innovative metasurface-like films for photothermal CO2 reduction in the gas phase.
