Research Activity

His research activity has been focused for some years on polarization mode dispersion, PMD and birefringence measurements techniques, design of low-PMD optical fibers, nonlinear propagation in random birefringent fiber, slow light in optical fiber amplifiers. The skills acquired and knowledge gained in those fundamental topics of optical fiber technology have been transferred to the investigation of fiber optic and optical device for sensing applications, that represents, at the moment, the main research topic of dr. Schenato. He also developed the entire core of a web monitoring management system, capable of real-time automatic data gathering from sensors, information fusion and alert features, that is currently suporting several monitoring platforms. Co-inventor of 1 patent, he has also co-authored more than 50 papers published in international referred journals and international conference proceedings.

 

 

 


Curriculum Vitae

L.S. was born near Verona, Italy, in 1979. He received the MSc degree in Communication Eng. cum laude and the PhD. degree from the Univ. of Padova, Italy, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. Since 2007 to 2010, he held a position of research fellow at the Univ. of Padova for doing research in optical fibers for slow and fast light applications, optical reflectometric measurements for fiber and fiber device characterization and optical fiber polarimetric techniques for ultra high resolution measurements. Starting from December, 2010, we held a position of Researcher at the Research Institute for Geo-Hydrogeological Protection of the Italian National Research Council, in Padova for doing research on optical fiber sensors in geologycal applications. He was awarded the "Antonio Sarpi" gold medal for the best engineering student graduated in 2003/2004 in the Univ. of Padova and in 2007 and 2008 he had been selected as one of the three finalists of the "C. Offelli Award" for the best young researcher of the Dept. of Information Eng., Univ. of Padova. In 2014 he won the InSIEM Award "Young People towards innovative enterprise" (Giovani Verso l'Impresa) , issued by the Italian Society of Electromagnetism (SIEm), with the collaboration of Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni (CNIT) and with the support of the European Microwave Association (EuMA) for the project "Optical fiber sensing system for real-time riverbank monitoring". On June 2016, he was awarded at 6th European Workshop on Optical Fibre Sensors with the Best Poster Award in the category "Physical and Mechanical Sensors".
