Giancarlo Della Ventura
University of Roma Tre, Italy
Giancarlo Della Ventura obtained his PhD in Mineral Synthesis at the University of Orléans (France) in 1992, and was appointed Fellow of MSA in 2007. He is currently Professor of Mineralogy at the University of Roma Tre. He spent several research periods in France, Canada, UK, Germany and USA working mainly on the synthesis and crystal-chemistry of silicates, in particular amphiboles, and systematic mineralogy of rare volcanic minerals, such as Be,B-silicates and U,Th minerals of the roman comagmatic area. Most of his scientific activity is however connected with the FTIR spectroscopy of minerals, and in particular with the development of imaging and high-T techniques.
Topic for the conference: HT-FTIR spectroscopy: problems and applications
