De Leo

Scientific Activity:

Natascia De Leo achieved her degree in Industrial Chemistry at the University of Torino and a PhD in Electronics Devices at Politecnico of Torino.
She worked as a researcher in CSELT, Centro Studi E Laboratori Telecomunicazioni (now TILab - Telecom Italia Lab), and as R&D Engineer in Agilent Technologies Italia SpA. She joined the Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica, INRIM (formerly Istituto Elettrotecnico Nazionale "Galileo Ferraris", IEN) in 2005.
In 2010 she obtained a permanent position as a researcher in the Nanotechnology and Quantum Devices department. She has experience in developing Josephson junction-based devices for metrological application and for sensing, in micro and nanofabrication processes of thin film technology, as well as optical, electron and ion beam lithography and deposition techniques.
Her scientific interests are
also related to the study of nanolithographic techniques of supramolecular self-assembly of nanospheres and di-block copolymers, as promising tools for thin film and surface nanostructuration on large area for different applications in the framework of several European projects and for the realisation of length standard at the nanoscale.
Since 2006 she is the manager of the clean room and of
Superconducting thin film lab and of the Superconducting Thin Films deposition lab in INRIM. She is Deputy Chairman of Fluxonics, a European network on superconductive electronics since 2013. Presently, she is responsible for the Nanoscale Science and Technology area in INRIM.
She is the author of more than
90 papers in international journals and conference papers.
