La ‘tecnologia della luce’ è una disciplina trasversale nel ventunesimo secolo e Federico Capasso, fra i primi a dimostrare le capacità del laser a ‘cascata quantica’, è uno dei principali studiosi del campo. Nella nona Annual Balzan Lecture, “From Quantum Cascade Lasers to Flat Optics for the Twenty-First Century”, l’autore propone un interessante resoconto della propria attività scientifica, attraverso l’illustrazione delle sue invenzioni nel campo delle ottiche e delle loro applicazioni, che vanno dalla spettroscopia alla diagnostica in campo medico.

Federico Capasso
Federico Capasso was awarded the Balzan Prize for Applied Photonics in 2016. He embarked on a career lying at the interface between applied and basic solid-state science in 1977 at Bell Labs, where he began as a member of the technical staff, to later become Vice President of Physical Research from 2000 to 2003. He moved on to his current position as Robert L. Wallace Professor of Applied Physics at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, thus adding university teaching to a long career of cutting-edge research. With more than 300 papers published and over 40 US patents to his name, Capasso’s contributions to heterostructure devices and materials are universally recognized as highly creative and influential.
