Francesca Limosani graduated in Chemistry at the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2015. She obtained her PhD in Chemical Science at the same University in 2019, with a thesis entitled “Synthesis and Characterization of Novel Carbon Materials-Porphyrin Hybrid Architectures as Active Light Harvesting Systems”.
During the PhD, she was a visiting scientist at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen in the research group of Prof. D. M. Guldi for the study of energy and electron transfer processes in artificial photosynthetic systems. After that, she started her post-doctoral activity in the Tor Vergata University for the Grafion project, working on the synthesis and characterization of organic based nanomaterials, carbon quantum dots, for the remediation of polluted soils and for the purification of water. From 2019 to 2021 she worked as research fellow at ENEA Frascati Research Centre in the MILEDI project, a EU Horizon project, involving 10 international groups (Fraunhofer Institute, CEA-leti, Centro Ricerche Fiat, Microoled, Technische Universität Dresden and University of St. Andrews), focusing on research activities on the synthesis of quantum-sized semiconductor nanocrystals with subsequent investigation of their photophysical and structural properties for industrial production of RGB mLEDs/OLEDs. From 2021 to 2022 she worked in another EU Horizon project, GreEnergy, at INFN of Frascati on the synthesis and characterization of graphene and 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) nanomaterials for the realization of wideband optical antennae for use in energy harvesting applications.
From May to November 2022, she returned to work at ENEA Frascati in the “Micro e Nanostrutture per la Fotonica” research group as researcher for the Biotrack project. Her research activity based on the development and characterization of a new generation of Fluorescent Nuclear Track Detectors (FNTD) based on a tissue-equivalent radiation-sensitive material, the lithium fluoride (LiF), combined with a “smart” thin film of microgels based on poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) for proton therapy.
Her actual research field is focused on the synthesis and characterization of carbon-based (C60, MWCNT, Graphene, Carbon Spheres) materials-porphyrin conjugates for catalysis, photovoltaic application, electron transfer systems and organic electronics.
