Umberto CELANO

Umberto CELANO
IMEC, Belgium




Umberto Celano received his B.Eng. in Electronic Engineering and a M.Sc. degree in Nanoelectronics with honors from the University of Rome “Sapienza”, Italy in 2009 and 2011 respectively. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Physics from the KU Leuven, Belgium. In 2010, he joined imec in Belgium for his M.Sc. thesis, working on the chemical and electrical analysis of high-k dielectrics for sub-30 nanometer transistors node. One year later, he started a Ph.D. at KU Leuven performing his research at imec on ionic devices for non-volatile memory. In 2015 Umberto’s Ph.D. dissertation has been awarded by the faculty of Science of KU Leuven with an honorable mention and selected for publication as a book by Springer in the “Springer Theses” collection.

Umberto is the recipient of the Rogen A. Haken Best Paper Award at IEDM (2013) and has authored or co-authored 50+ papers in international journals and conference proceedings. Currently, Umberto is a research scientist in the material and component analysis group of imec. His research interests include nanometer scale issues in materials, emerging nanoelectronics and physical characterization. His goal is to explore methods and novel metrology techniques that enable the understanding of the physics in nanomaterials and nanoelectronics devices. As a service for the profession he works with the metrology working-group in the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) and he is a member of the early carrier editorial board of Nano Letters.
