Antonella Bogoni, Professor at Scuola Superiore Sant’anna, is one of the pioneers of the Integrated Research Center for Photonic Networks and Technologies created in Pisa in 2001 as a part of a broad agreement among four partners, CNIT, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Marconi Communications S.p.A. (now Ericsson) and the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), aiming to create in Pisa a world-class Center of Excellence, where currently she is leader of the “digital & microwave photonics” area.
Antonella Bogoni dedicated her research activity to photonics technologies especially formicrowave systems as 5G, and radars for Security, Space and Automotive. Recently she is leading projects for the development of photonics-based sensors (lidar and radar) and communication subsystems on chip.
She collaborated with the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles where she worked in 2008 and from 2009 to 2010 as winner of a “Fulbright” scholarship.
Since 2009 she obtained an ERC starting grant and two additional ERC grants within the “proof of concept”. She presented on NATURE the first photonic-based radar. In 2015 she is coordinator of the H2020 project: “ROAM: Revolutionising optical fiber transmission and networking using the Orbital Angular Momentum of light”. Since 2017 she is the coordinator of four projects on photonics integration for Space funded by the European and Italian Space agencies.
Up to now Antonella Bogoni got more than 30 national and international project grants and 9 Best Paper awards. She is co/author of 55 patents, 8 books and chapters and more than 160 papers on the main scientific international journals. She is Topical Editor for Optics Letters and technical co-chair of ECOC 2018.
