Giuseppe Bertuccio was born in 1962, received the Laurea in Nuclear Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) and since 1987 he joined the research group of professor Emilio Gatti at Politecnico di Milano, contributing to the pioneering development of electronic devices on the high resistivity silicon suitable for the integration with radiation detectors. From 1990 to 1997 he held a researcher permanent position and since 1998 he is Associate Professor in the Department of Electronics Engineering and Information Science at PoliMi.
In 1991 he was visiting researcher at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL, New York - USA) working on X-ray detectors and associated electronics. He contributed to the development of the Silicon Drift Detectors and associated integrated front-end electronics within a research collaboration between PoliMi, BNL and Max Planck Institute (Munich, D).
In 1993 he was visiting engineer at Canberra Industries (Meriden, CT - USA) to collaborate in the R&D of a front-end for high purity germanium detectors.
In 1993-94, he collaborated with the University of Freiburg and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solid State Physics (Freiburg, Germany) on the design of the first charge amplifier in GaAs technology using High Electron Mobility Transistors. He has also collaborated with the University of Modena, Institute for Solid State Physics (Julich, D), Alenia-Marconi Systems (Rome, I) and ESA-ESTEC (Noordwijk, Netherland) for study and development of X-ray detectors based on GaAs. His present research fields are in low-noise and low-power mixed-signals ASIC’s for signal processing of radiation detectors and in compound semiconductors detectors (SiC, GaAs, CdTe, CdZnTe) for ionizing radiation spectroscopy and imaging. He has been scientific responsible for Politecnico di Milano of several research projects on radiation detectors and associated electronics funded by the National Research Council (CNR), the Italian Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), the Italian Space Agency (ASI), the Italian Institute of Astrophysics (INAF), Regione Lombardia and by the Ministry of University and Scientific and Technological Research. He has collaborated with Alenia Marconi Systems, Selex Integrated Systems, Thales Alenia Space, Check Cap and Altalab for the development and application of high resolution X-ray spectroscopic devices and systems.
Since 1987 he is member of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics. He has served as professor to several international courses on radiation detectors and associated electronics organized by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in USA and Europe. He is author/co-author of 150 scientific articles on semiconductor detectors, electron devices, integrated circuits, instrumentation and measurements published on international scientific journals and 17 invited talks at international conferences.
