Domenico de Ceglia received his “Laurea” Degree and PhD, both in Electronic Engineering, from Politecnico di Bari (Italy), in 2003 and 2007, respectively. As a graduate student, he visited the US Army AMRDEC research facility of Redstone Arsenal under the auspices of the US Army, European Research Office in London, England. From 2007 to 2009, he was a consultant at Altran Italia S.p.A. From 2009 to 2012 he was a research scientist at Aegis Technologies Inc. in Huntsville (AL) – USA. In 2012 he was awarded with a National Research Council Fellowship by the US National Academies to work as a senior research associate at the Charles M. Bowden Laboratory of US Army AMRDEC, Redstone Arsenal (AL) – USA. From 2017 to 2021, Domenico was associate professor of “Electromagnetic fields” at the Department of Information Engineering of University of Padova, Italy. Since 2021, Domenico is associate professor of “Electromagnetic fields” at the Department of Information Engineering of University of Brescia. 

Domenico’s research interests focus on the study of linear and nonlinear optical effects in nanophotonic and nanoplasmonic structures. He has been engaged in the study of light propagation phenomena at the nanoscale, from negative index and other types of metamaterials, such as metallo-dielectric photonic band gap structures, to semiconductor optics at UV wavelengths, and harmonic generation in metal- and semiconductor-based nanostructures. More recently, he has engaged in the study of harmonic generation in materials with low permittivity values, either natural or artificial, in the analysis and design of compact photonic devices based on two-dimensional materials, and in the study of tunable and nonlinear nanophotonic devices based on phase-change materials. Domenico has authored or co-authored 89 papers in peer review journals and more than 100 contributions in proceedings of international conferences. He is co-author of 3 book chapters and the co-inventor of two United States patents. Here is Domenico’s full CV.
