Research management, teaching, organization activity

Enrico Zanoni is active in the field of characterization, modeling, reliability physics and failure analysis of electron devices since 1982. After moving to Padova in 1988, he promoted, together with Claudio Canali and Alessandro Paccagnella, the establishment of a research group involved not only in device reliability evaluation (with Gaudenzio Meneghesso and Matteo Meneghini) but also in CMOS integrated circuit design (Andrea Bevilacqua, Andrea Gerosa, Andrea Neviani and Daniele Vogrig), radiation hardness (Alessandro Paccagnella, Simone Gerardin), organic semiconductors (Andrea Cester), photovoltaics and MEMS (Gaudenzio Meneghesso).

The group now comprises 10 Faculty and one technical engineer, and hosts approximately 40 young researchers (including PhD students, MEE graduating students, post-docs).
