Research track record
The PI coordinates the group of Optical Spectroscopy of Nanostructured Materials at the Physics Department, Sapienza Università di Roma (https://antoniopolimeni-physics.weebly.com/). At the early stages, the activity of the PI concerned the effects of disorder on the optical properties of semiconductor quantum wells. In the group of Quantum Transport and Spectroscopy of Semiconductors at the University of Nottingham, he investigated the transport, structural, and magneto-optical properties of quantum dots and their application as active medium in lasers. In particular, the PI engineered and characterized lasers based on InGaAs self-assembled quantum dots with top-notch performances.
In Rome, he studied the electronic and optical properties of different semiconductor material systems also under high magnetic fields and hydrostatic pressure. The PI discovered the hydrogen-induced passivation of nitrogen atoms in dilute nitrides. This enabled the fabrication of novel nanostructures with planar architecture leading to the recent realization of site-controlled single photon sources embedded in photonic structures. The PI investigated also the structural, optical and magneto-optical properties of nanowires. The PI pioneered a novel method for creating strain-engineered nanostructures via the formation of hydrogen bubbles in two-dimensional materials by hydrogen irradiation. Recently, the PI interests moved to the optoelectronic properties of perovskite materials.

The PI worked in several laboratories abroad: Philipps-University of Marburg, High Field Magnet Laboratory in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and Grenoble, Synchrotron SOLEIL Paris, European Synchrotron Radiation Facility Grenoble

The PI is author of 233 peer-reviewed papers, 5 contributed book chapters, 5 invited articles, 39 papers in conference proceedings, 36 invited talks and seminars.
