About

Carmine Vittoria received his Ph.D. in applied quantum physics from Yale University in 1970. He was employed at the Naval Research Laboratory as a physicist. Topics of research included: magnetstrictive planar devices, magnetostatic delay lines, composite electrical and magnetic materials, computer circuits on first Navy computer, ferrites, production of planar devices.

He is employed at Northeastern University as a full professor. At NU, he has established a world class research laboratory in the development of new microwave materials. Fabricated mixer devices using high Tc superconducting devices, sub-micron planar devices, security tag devices, magnetic transducers, artificial ferrite materials, and a number of planar filter devices.

Professor Vittoria has more than 300 publications in major journals (nature,phys.rev.lett. j.app.phys and various IEEE trans pub.), more than 20 patents and many invitations to international conferences. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and IEEE.
