Research activities: C.F. is active in the area of the low temperature physics and superconductivity. His experimental activity is focused on magnetic, transport and thermal properties, on material preparation and on the applications of superconductivity. After the discovery of High Temperatures Superconductors he participated to the experiments (a.c. susceptibility, thermopower, thermal diffusivity and fluctuative conductivity) carried out at the laboratory of University of Genova on these materials. C.F is active in the field of materials development, in particular on HTS, Magnesium Diboride and Iron Based SC. This activity has been carried out under the support of European funding, as well as by numerous public and industrial research grants. C.F., together with CNR, Ansaldo Superconduttori and other people, founded a company, Columbus Superconductors (www.Columbus-sc.it), devoted to establish an industrial production of MgB2 tapes and wires. More recently he moved his interest also in the thin films growth of both oxides and intermetallics (magnesium diboride, borocarbides and oxypnictides). Publications: C.F. is author of more than 250 ISI papers (h-index: 37, more than 4000 citations). C.F. was editor of the proceedings of the following conferences: SATT3 (1990 World Scientific), ICEC 15 (1994 Cryogenics), BOROMAG (2003 Superconductor Science & Technology), EUCAS 2013 (2014 Superconductor Science & Technology).
