Giuseppe Currò's Problem Solving Experience:
Radiation hardened solutions for microelectronic devices for Aerospace applications. My role has been the technology and design developer, leader of a large project and co-ordinator of all related actions. I provided the physical modelling of the ionizing radiation vs device materials interactions, the materials and structure solutions to face Single Event and Total Dose degradation mechanisms in compliance with performances required to the power componets.
Co-ordinator of R&D activities for the development of innovative nanoparticle colloids and the industrializable process to produce them, based on the novel and strongly promising Laser Ablation in Liquids technique
Inventor of ultrathin corrosion-protection solutions for metallization adopted in microelectronic devices. Process development and process integration in industrial flows. I provided the R&D work needed to asses the industrial results, the analytical work and the chemical synthesis required.
