Domenico Pacifici - Associate Professor
Professor Pacifici received his M.Sc. (2000) and Ph.D. (2004) in Physics, both summa cum laude, from the University of Catania in Italy, where he studied the optical, structural and electrical properties of silicon quantum dots and their interaction with rare-earth ions for a silicon-based Microphotonics. His work has been recognized by several citations and invited talks at international conferences.
In 2004 he received an award from STMicroelectronics, a global leader in electronics and semiconductor manufacturing, for the best PhD thesis performed in collaboration with industry. Prior to joining Brown, he spent four years as a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology.
