Coordinators

Pascal Andreazza

Coordinator

Professor of condensed matter physics at the University of Orléans (France)
His main topic is the study of the structural transition induced by the size and kinetic effects during the formation, the ageing and the annealing of nanoalloys. He is expert in X-ray scattering (wide-angle/diffraction and small-angle in multi-wavelengh detection/anomalous) for nanomaterials especially, the in situ measurements during UHV growth, annealing or gas exposure.

Riccardo Ferrando

Vice coordinator

Professor of theoretical condensed matter physics at the University of Genoa (Italy). His research interests lie in computational, in statistical physics and in computational nanoscience. He is author of more than 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals and of the book « Structure and Properties of Nanoalloys ».
