LIBPhys, NOVA School of Science and Technology

Brief Bio
Maria Raposo received the Ph.D. degree in Materials Sciences and Engineering by Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil in 1999 and, since 2000, is professor at Physics Department of Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, lecturing Solid State Physics, Surface and Interfaces Technology, Conducting Polymers, Molecular Electronics and Physics of Functional Macromolecular Systems. She is Head of the Functional Molecular Systems group since 2008, whose research interests include electric and optical properties of ultra-thin films of polymers and biomolecules, interfaces and nano-technology, colloids, molecular architectures for electronics, photonics and magnetism, biomimetic membranes and radiation effect in biological systems.
Orlando Frazao

Brief Bio
Orlando Frazão, was graduated in Physics Engineering (optoelectronics and electronics) from the University of Aveiro, Portugal. He received his Ph. D. from University of Porto, Portugal, on optical fibre sensors based on interferometry and non linear effect. From 1997 to 1998, he was with the Institute of Telecommunications, Aveiro as scholarship in the European Project UPGRADE (High Bitrate 1300nm Upgrade of the European Standard Single Mode Network.). Presently, he is a Senior Researcher at Optoelectronics and Electronic Systems Unit, INESC Porto and as a head group of optical fiber sensor for Physical measurement. His present research interests included optical fiber sensors and optical communications. He realized several National research projects in optical sensing and optical communications and also participated in the European project (NEXTGENPCF – Next Generation Photonic Crystal). He has several bilateral cooperation between France (Xlim Université de Nice Sophie Antipolis), Spain (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid) and Brasil (Universidade Federal do Para (UFPA). He has published about 98 in peer-reviewed journals, over 220 papers in international and National conference proceedings, and authored 7 patents. He has reviewer for several international journals (IEEE, OSA, Elsevier, IOP, etc). He participated as organized committee of The 3rd WSEAS International Conference on SENSORS and SIGNALS (SENSIG '10), Chair of Special Section in Optical Sensors, Faro, Portugal, 2010 and Organized Committee of IV European Workshop on Optical Fibre Sensors (EWOFS), Porto, Portugal, 2010. He has three awards. He is also senior member of the OSA and SPIE.
Agostino Iadicicco
University of Naples “Parthenope”

Brief Bio
Agostino Iadicicco is professor with the Department of Engineering of the University of Naples Parthenope, Italy. He received the electronic engineering master degree cum laude from the Second University of Naples, Naples, Italy, and the Ph.D. degree in information engineering from the University of Sannio, Benevento, Italy, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. He is member of the Ph.D. teaching council and serves as the Associate Editor for the IEEE Sensors Journal. Since 2002, his research activity has been focused on optoelectronics and photonics devices for sensing and communications applications.
