Carlo Lamberti from the University of Turin, Italy, passed away on February 1, 2019. Professor Lamberti’s research covered the fields of physics, chemistry, and materials science. He was an expert in techniques for the characterization of materials based on synchrotron radiation and neutrons beams.

Carlo Lamberti
, born in 1964, studied physics at the University of Turin, Italy. From 1988 to 1993, he worked in the CSELT laboratories, Turin, Italy, (at that time Telecom Italia, then Avago Technologies) on the characterization of the interfaces of III-V semiconductor heterostructures with 4K photoluminescence, high-resolution XRD and X-ray absorption spectroscopies (XAS at synchrotron radiation sources). He obtained his Ph.D. in solid state physics from the University of Rome, Italy, in 1993. Since 2006, he had been a Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Turin.

He and his team performed more than 200 experiments approved by international committees on large scale facilities: ADONE (Frascati, Italy), LURE DCI and SuperACO (Orasay, Paris, France), ESRF (Grenoble, France), Elettra (Trieste, Italy), SRS (Daresbury, UK), SLS (Villigen, Switzerland), APS (Argonne, IL, USA), SOLEIL (Orsay, France), MAX II, (Lund, Sweden), Diamond and ISIS (Didcot, UK), ILL (Grenoble, France), SINQ (Villigen, Switzerland), FRM-II (München, Germany), among these were two long-time projects at the ESRF.

Carlo Lamberti was the Principal Investigator of the Mega-Grant No. 14.Y26.31.0001 of the Russian Federation Government to support scientific research at the Southern Federal University, Rostov Oblast, Russia (MaMaSELF partner). From 2014 to 2016, he was a Full Professor of Solid-State Physics and Scientific Director of the Smart Materials Research Institute at the Southern Federal University.
