PCCP Fellows

Andrea Tartari

Current PCCP Fellow


07/11/2011 to 07/11/2015
Andrea Tartari graduated at the University of Pavia in 2001 defending a thesis on the galactic spectral index at radio waves, in the context of the TRIS experiment carried out by the Radio Group of the University of Milano-Bicocca, led by prof. Giorgio Sironi. This study was oriented to the removal of galactic foregrounds in Cosmic Microwave Background experiments searching for its spectral distortions (TRIS, among others).

In November 2001 he joined the Radio Group as PhD student, starting his activity in the field of CMB instrumentation and taking part to observational campaigns. He defended a PhD thesis in June 2005, on the “Development of a sub-millimeter radio receiver for Cosmological Observations”, under the supervision of prof. Massimo Gervasi. As experimental physicist, he’s still engaged in CMB research.

As PCCP fellow he will dedicate his research activity to superconducting detectors suitable for ultrasensitive observations of the mm-wave sky.

Current research activities: 

Superconducting detector development for CMB experiments: Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors
