Department of Chemistry "Giacomo Ciamician"

Curriculum vitae

Nadia Camaioni got the Master degree (Laurea) in Physics, summa cum laude, from the University of Bologna, in 1985. She is a Research Director at the National Research Council (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, CNR) and she works in Bologna, at the Institute for Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity.

Her scientific interests deal with the electronic properties of organic conjugated materials and their applications in organic electronics, in particular in the field of solar energy conversion into electric energy. Her research activity is mainly focused to the investigation of organic solar cells (for which she was a pioneer at national level) and, recently, also of luminescent solar concentrators. Concerning organic solar cells,   photoactive blends composed of a conjugated polymer and a fullerene derivative are mainly studied, with the aim to understand the complex interplay between the chemical structure of materials, their chemical-physical properties and their effects on the performance of solar cells. In the field of luminescent solar concentrators, the attention is mainly for biopolymers with suited optical properties, to be used as eco-friendly transparent matrices.

Nadia Camaioni is a group leader. She has given invited talks at International Conferences on the theme of organic photovoltaics. She has been/is scientific responsible of national or international research projects, as well as of industrial research contracts. She acts as Referee for prestigious scientific publishers (Nature Publishing Group, Wiley, ACS, AIP, RSC) as well as for funding agencies (Ministero Sviluppo Economico (IT), Ministero dell'Istruzione dell'Università e della Ricerca (IT), European Commission, Science and Technology Foundation (PT), Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique (B), Petroleum Research Fund (USA), National Research Council of Romania, U.S. Department of Energy). She is author of about 130 peer-reviewed publications in international journals or book chapters. She is inventor of 2 Italian patents and 2 international patents.  

Since 2012, she is Adjunct Professor at the University of Bologna, School of Science. Currently she teaches Organic Electronics: Materials and Applications.
