Barbara Fazio


Barbara Fazio received a MSc degree in Physics (cum laude) from the University of Messina in March 1997. She subsequently worked as researcher at the “Central Research and Development” division of STMicroelectronics in Milano and Catania (Italy). From 2000 to the end of 2001, she played the role of section head of the “Process Integration Group” in charge for the development and integration of fabrication processes of “Flash Memories Devices” on silicon wafers in the Catania site. Since December 2001, she has a permanent position as researcher at the Institute of Physical Chemical Processes of Italian Research Council (CNR-IPCF) in Messina. Her expertise is on experimental physics with main interests in light scattering processes and, in particular, in Raman spectroscopy of complex systems and nanostructured materials for photonics and plasmonics. Her more recent research focuses on light propagation in disordered systems aiming to understand electromagnetic field enhancement and interference effects and, in particular, the mechanism of inelastic multiple scattering with a major emphasis on the generation and propagation of Raman light in random materials. She has co-authored more than 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 6 book chapters and 2 USPatents (1 world-wide extended). She has given 24 talks in national and international conferences, 13 of which as an invited speaker.
