Giuseppe Bertuccio was born in 1962 and received the Laurea in Nuclear Electronics Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi). 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 a visiting researcher at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL, NY-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 (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 for GaAs detectors study and development.
His present research fields are in low-noise and low-power mixed-signals ASICís for signal processing of radiation detectors and compound semiconductors detectors (SiC, GaAs, CdTe) for 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) and of the Ministry of University and Scientific and Technological Research. He has collaborated with Alenia Marconi Systems, Selex Integrated Systems, Thales Alenia Space and Check Cap for the development and application of radiation detectors and ASICís. 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). He is author/co-author of about 130 scientific articles on semiconductor detectors, electron devices, integrated circuits, instrumentation and measurements and of 15 invited talks at international conferences.
