February 1979 - I gave a course at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (troisieme Cycle de la physique en Suisse Romande) on "The physical properties of metal particles".
1/12/1982 - I am hired at the National Research Council (CNR), "Instituto di Metodologie Avanzate Inorganiche", with a 5 years contract. In this position I held two official courses for the degree in Physics at the University of L' Aquila.
1987 - I won the contest as a permanent research worker at the CNR.

16/2/1988 - I became Associate professor at the Università of Rome Tor Vergata, Department of Physics.
1993 - 1977 - Paper of mine re-published by Solid State Communications among the most important of the previous the 30 years.
1996 - Member of a Committee for a Doctorate in Physics to the Scuola Normale in Pisa.
1997 - Member of a Committee for a Doctorate in Physics, University of Cagliari.
1/3/2000 - I became full professor at the University of Rome 'Tor Vergata'.

I was coordinator of European projects and member of boards of scientific of conferences.
I am the national coordinator of the prin
" Spettroscopia Auger di sistemi magnetici di bassa dimensionalita': correlazione elettronica e dicroismo. " Currently I am in a board for Springer Verlag, referee of many international reviews.
My biography is found on "Who' s who in the World".

RESEARCH ACTIVITY: MAIN RESULTS
  1. Electron spectroscopies: the concept of two-hole resonances resonances. A popular theory of Auger CVV and APECS spectra, APECS of solids. Models of the photoemission spectra and other electron spectroscopies of valence, accounting for phonon and plasmon excitations.
  2. The method of the excitation amplitudes: a recursion technique that gives exact Green functions of a wide class of models. My review article on the method is referenced in the new edition of the book of Mahan "Many-Particle Physics".
  3. Dynamic atom-surface interaction and stimulated desorption: a theory of the desorption induced from Auger effect that simultaneously accounts for Menzel-Gomer-Redhead processes and the mechanism of Knotek-Feibelman.
  4. Physics of small metal particles: contributions to the theory of the quantum size effects on the dielectric and optical response; a detailed interpretation of XPS, Auger, BIS and XANES spectra of metallic particles interacting with a substrate, like those of Pd grown on graphite.
  5. Transport of electrons through junctions and solar cells: a framework for quantum transport that has growing success today provided in 1980 the first exact solutions of the many-body transport through junctions with time-dependent bias.
  6. Nonlinear optics: a) a theory for the second harmonic spectra from interfaces of semiconductors; b) a non- perturbative reformulation of the quantum theory, suitable for strong fields, with new sum rules valid to all orders.
  7. Superconductivity: A. Balzarotti and I proposed W=0 pairing, a quantum mechanism producing bound fermion pairs from repulsive interactions. A basic ingredient is the symmetry. The theory yields the superconducting pattern of magnetic flux quantization and the Josephson effect.

TEACHING

  6. In 1988-2004 I gave the course Atomic at the Università of Rome "Tor Vergata", and I lectured in other courses including the ones for the PHD. Since 2004 I teach "Theory of Solids" for the 5-years degree in Physics and since 2002 I teach "Elements of Theoretical Physics" for the degree in Materials Sciences.
