Dr. Giacomo Scalari has studied physics at the University of Pisa, Italy. After a period at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna he moved to Switzerland for his PhD at the University of Neuchâtel. In 2007 he joined the Institute for Quantum Electronics at ETH Zürich as a Post-Doc. After becoming Oberassistant he was hired permanently in 2011 as a Senior Research Scientist.
Dr. Scalari’s research interests span both applied and fundamental experimental physics, particularly in the field of THz photonics with the development of new THz quantum cascade laser sources and frequency combs and in the field of strong light-matter coupling with the study of metamatrial-based polaritonic system for THz quantum optics.
