RESEARCH ACTIVITY 

Since the beginning, the activity research of Mario Barra has been devoted to the study of the electromagnetic properties of innovative materials and to the development of related devices suitable to be utilized in different application fields. During the years 2000-2004, the activities were mainly focused on the design, fabrication and experimental testing of planar microwave devices based on superconducting films. The development of miniaturized superconducting planar filters for mobile communications was the main subject of study. Starting from 2005, the scientific work has been basically committed to the investigation of the charge transport phenomena in organic functional materials and on the fabrication and electrical characterization of electronic devices, such as Light Emitting Diodes, solar cells, sensors, and transistors based on these materials. For the characterization of materials and devices, a wide series of techniques operating both in DC and AC regimes, up to the microwave range, has been applied. At present, the main scientific interests are:  

  • Growth and morphological characterization of organic films;
  • Charge transport at micro and nano-scale in high-performance organic semiconductors;
  • Charge-transfer and doping effects in organic and hybrid materials;
  • Impedance spectroscopy techniques for electronic and bio-electronic applications; 
  • Ionic/electronic transduction effects in organic field-effect and electrochemical transistors; 
  • New functional electronic systems combining 2D materials and organic molecules.

 

TEACHING ACTIVITY

Co-supervisor of about 25 master thesis (I and II level) in Electronic, Biomedical and Chemical Engineering.
