MARIO IODICE took M.Sc. Degree and Ph.D. Degree in Electronic Engineering at the University of Napoli “Federico II”. From 1992 to 1994 he was a scholarship holder at the IRECECNR, where he was involved in integrated optics and optoelectronics and on laser characterization of electro‑optic materials. From 1993 to 1994 he was a visiting researcher at DIMES (TUDelft), where he worked on microelectronics technologies and on thermal sensors design. From 1995 to 1997 he was with the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of Napoli "Federico II”, working on modeling and design of silicon electro‑optic modulator. During 1996 he visited the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, where he worked on thermal analysis on flat panel displays. At the present time, he is a senior researcher at IMM–CNR, where he works on integrated optical circuit and devices and optical sensors. He also taught Electronics at the University of Reggio Calabria, since 1997 until 2001 and Sensors at the University of Calabria in 2002. He was the responsible of the Clean Room at IMM–CNR from 2005 up to 2015. From 2015 he is the Head of the Department of Naples of the Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems. He is author of more than 150 papers published on international journals and conference proceedings.
