Luigi Bonacina

Luigi Bonacina started his academic career at the University of Milan (bachelor in Physics and Master in Optics). He then moved to Switzerland for where he completed a PhD at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) with a research in the field of ultrafast molecular spectroscopy. Successively, he joined the University of Geneva where in 2011 he got a tenured position at the Applied Physics Department. His research activities are focused on the development of novel nonlinear optical approaches for cell-tracking in deep tissue with applications in cancer and regenerative medicine. He has introduced and developed the Harmonic Nanoparticles, a family of non-fluorescent dielectric particles emitting multiple harmonic signals by tunable laser excitation from the visible to the infrared.
