From 1981 to 2003, Roberto Fornari was at the Institute for Electronic and Magnetic Materials of the Italian National Research Council, and from 2003 to 2013 he was Director of the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) and Full Professor at the Institute of Physics of the Humboldt University, Berlin. His research experience includes bulk and epitaxial semiconductors for advanced applications (GaAs, InP, GaN, AlN and InGaN), semiconducting oxides, solar silicon, silicon nano-structures. His current research focuses on gallium oxide and related alloys for power electronics and UV-detection.
