Gaudenzio Meneghesso

    Project Coordinator
    University of Padova, Department of Information Engineering

    In 2011 Gaudenzio Meneghesso became a Full Professor at the University of Padova

    He graduated in Electronics Engineering at the University of Padova in 1992 working on the failure mechanism induced by hot-electrons in MESFETs and HEMTs. In 1997 he received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Padova.

    In October 2018 he became the director of the department of Information Engineering. His research interests involves mainly the Electrical characterization, modeling and reliability of several semiconductors devices: a) microwave and optoelectronics devices on III-V and III-N; b) RF-MEMS switches for reconfigurable antenna arrays; c) Electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection structures for CMOS and SMART POWER integrated circuits including ElectroMagnetic interference issues; d) organic semiconductors devices; e) photovoltaic solar cells based on various materials.

    Within these activities, he has published more than 800 technical papers (of which more than 100 Invited Papers and 12 best paper awards). He has been nominated to IEEE Fellow class 2013, with the following citation: “for contributions to the reliability physics of compound semiconductors devices”.
