Education

Eugenio Del Re (DelRe) received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Università dell’Aquila (Italy), defending the experimental thesis "Nonlinear Optical Propagation in Ferroelectric and Near-Critical Paraelectric Photorefractive Crystals" (Prof. Bruno Crosignani -Università dell’Aquila, and jointly, Prof. Mordechai Segev - Princeton University, January 1999) .  He earned his Laurea degree in Physics at the University of Rome "La Sapienza" (Italy)  magna cum laude defending the experimental thesis "Quantum-State Engineering for Single Photon Experiments" (Prof. Francesco De Martini - Università di Roma, March 1995). He is bilingual English-Italian, and communicates in French. 

Professional

He was appointed in 2006 Aggregate Professor in Physics, and teaches Physics at the School of Ingegneria Civile (Civil Engineering) of the Università dell’Aquila.  In 2005 he received tenureship and was appointed Ricercatore Universitario in Fisica Sperimentale and admitted into the Accademic body of the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Elettrica e dell’Informazione (Electrical and Information Engineering Department) at the Università dell’Aquila.  From 2001 to 2004 he was  Research Fellow of the Italian Institute for Condensed Matter Physics  (INFM) at the Physics Department of the University of Rome "La Sapienza". In 2002 he was co-founder of TelCon srl, a Rome based Optical Telecommunications Research/Consulting company. During 2001 he was Senior Optical Engineer at Qplus Networks Italia S.r.l., a hi-tech optical communications start-up, subsidiary of Qplus Networks Inc., a Los Angeles based start-up.  From 2000 to 2001 he was Research Scientist at the Advanced Research Division, Pirelli Cavi e Sistemi S.p.a. (Milan, Italy). From 1998 to 2000 he was Research Scientist at the Optical Communications Division, Nonlinear Device Group, of the Fondazione Ugo Bordoni (Rome, Italy). In 1996 he was part of the Temporary Technical Staff at the Electrical Engineering Department of Princeton University.  From 1995 to 1997 he served as Second Lieutenant of the Italian Army Technical Corps, acting as Physics Officer (Ruolo Fisici) at the Centro Tecnico Chimico-Fisico-Biologico (Civitavecchia, Italy).
