Marian Zamfirescu graduated in Physics in 1998, at
the University of Bucharest. As young researcher he started the
scientific activity in the "National Institute for Lasers, Radiation
and Plasma Physics" from Bucharest (NILPRP). Here the research
activity was mainly directed to the physics of Solid-State Laser and
their applications in nonlinear optics.
In 2003 he received the PhD in Physics of Materials at University
Blaise Pascal from Clermont-Ferrand, France, in the framework of
EU-RTN CLERMONT project. During the three years of doctoral studies
the research activity has mainly dealt with the investigation of
light-matter interaction in wide bandgap semiconductors and
heterostructures. He studied the excitonic and polaritonic effects in
quantum wells and multiquantum wells, optical superlatices and
microcavities. He developed theoretical models and used numerical
techniques for simulation of the spectrally resolved and time resolved
optical response of quantum wells and nitride microcavities.
As Experienced Researcher at the Department of Physics in Florence he
extend the area of activites to the optical characterization of
semiconductor heterostructures (quantum dots, quantum well, quantum
rings, nanocolumns, pillar microcavities) structures with applications
for emitting light devices in the blue-UV spectral rage, or optical
devices like "Single Photon Emitter". By ultrafast spectroscopy have
been studied effects of the polarization field on the excitonic
dynamic in nitride heterostructures.
During many work stages in different Research Institutes from France
and Italy, he acquired a large scientific experiences in the field of
nanostructure characterization, including time-resolved spectroscopy,
confocal microscopy, atomic force microscopy.
In present at NILPRP the scientific activity is focused on
nanostructure growth and characterization using ultrafast laser
pulses. He is involved in the development of an ultrafast laser
facility for nanotechnology.
