Marco G. Beghi
Dr. Marco G. Beghi graduated in 1979 in Nuclear Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. He spent one year at University of California, Los Angeles. In 1984 he became research fellow at the Department of Nuclear Engineering, Politecnico di Milano, and in 2003 associate professor of Condensed Matter Physics. He was member of government bodies of Politecnico: Board of Administrators and Academic Senate. Presently he is in the Micro- and Nanostructured Materials Laboratory of the Department of Energy, Politecnico. Since 1991 he has been teaching Experimental Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, and Technology of Nuclear Materials, to undergraduate and graduate students of Nuclear and Materials Engineering. His experimental research concerns the physics of materials. He analysed the mechanical behaviour of metals in terms of dislocation dynamics and irreversible thermodynamics. He then worked on thin films and their properties, exploiting Brillouin spectrometry to measure the elastic properties. He co-authored over seventy peer reviewed publications.
