STLab welcome Antonino Amato, electronic engineer, as part of the external consultants team

Mr. Antonino Salvatore Amato is a senior electronics expert, whose main areas of expertise are: low level DC current measurements; field electronics for remote control and beam diagnostics for accelerators and beamlines; low-noise, high-sensitivity electronics for the diagnostics of hadrotherapy beams; high-speed electronics for the diagnostics of laser-driven pulsed beams; electromagnetic compatibility; high voltage and/or high current power supplies; PSPICE simulations of electronic circuits. Mr. Amato has been working at INFN - Laboratori Nazionali del Sud (LNS) of Catania since early 1984, he is currently Head of the "Electronics, power converters, diagnostics and automations” department, belonging to the Accelerators Technologies Service. Over the course of his 39 years career at INFN-LNS, he has worked for many projects, among these the most relevant are: the construction and commissioning of the Superconducting Cyclotron K800, which produced the first beam in 1994; the establishment in 2002 of the CATANA protontherapy center, devoted to the treatment of patients suffering ocular tumors; the completion in 2018 of the ELIMED beamline installed at the international laser research center ELI-Beamlines of Prague.

STLab welcomes Enrico Sangregorio, chemist and material scientist, as part of the phD students team

Dr. Sangregorio obtained his Master’s Degree in Materials Chemistry in June 2021 with an experimental thesis entitled “Vibrational spectroscopy in molecular ices subjected to irradiation with ionic beams and their application in astrophysics”, a work made in collaboration with the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF). In December 2021 he started the Ph.D course in Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the University of Catania. His research subject involves the development and the characterization of innovative SiC-based X-Ray and neutrons detectors with possible applications in physics, nuclear fusion and nuclear medicine. This project was born from a collaboration between UniCT’s department of Physics and Astronomy, CNR-IMM (Institute of Microelectronics and Microsystem) and STLab (Science and Technology Laboratory)
