Gianluca Ghigo is Associate Professor at the Applied Science and Technology Department of the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, since 2011. He received his M.S. in Physics from the University of Torino in 1992 and his Ph.D. in Physics from Politecnico di Torino in 1997.
His research activity, focused on the area of Condensed Matter Physics, is mainly experimental but also includes fundamental as well as applied aspects of the physics of materials. Part of the activity consists in the development of measuring techniques (also at microwave frequencies) and methods for data analysis. Dc and high-frequency electromagnetic properties of unconventional superconductors and magnetic media have been the main subjects of his interest. He also studies the effects of high-energy ion-irradiation on the properties of materials of technological interest (superconductors, magnetic materials, transparent oxides), in collaboration with the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN).
He is co-author of over 130 publications on international ISI journals and serve as referee for American Physical Society, Institute of Physics and Elsevier journals.
