Micro Photon Devices Srl (MPD) is a dynamic production and engineering company based in Bolzano. MPD was founded with the goal of leading the forefront research activities in single-photon counting and picosecond timing of single photons. MPD currently produces and commercialises advanced single-photon counting modules with unmatched photon-timing capabilities and overall performance. Silicon SPADs make it possible to conjugate high detector performance with miniaturisation, low power and the development of integrated systems. SPADs in compound semiconductors extend photon counting applications to the near-infrared spectral range up to the optical fibre wavelengths.

  • Andrea Giudice

    Dr Andrea Giudice (male) PhD in Electronics and Communication Engineering at Politecnico di Milano in 2003. He currently is the Managing Director of  MPD: expert in the design, validation, and characterisation of electronic devices and circuits. In 1997, he has a summer student at National Microelectronics Research Centre (NMRC now Tyndall), Cork, Ireland, where he designed and tested avalanche photodiodes for single-photon detection. Deep know-how in single-photon detectors and applications gained during his PhD at the Department of Electronics and Information of Politecnico di Milano within Prof. Cova’s group and during his previous career in MPD as a senior R&D engineer.

  • Simone Tisa

    Dr Simone Tisa*(male), PhD degree in Information Technology Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in 2006. He is currently a Product R&D Manager for electronics design and system integration at Micro Photon Devices. In 2008, he pioneered the first monolithic 2-D SPAD imager of 32 × 32 pixels. His main research interests are in the field of single-photon imaging and single-photon timing of fast phenomena, by means of fully integrated arrays of SPADs and associated microelectronics.

  • Alessandro Ruggeri

    Dr Alessandro Ruggeri (male), received his PhD in Information Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) in 2015. He is currently the Chief Technology Officer of Micro Photon Devices Srl, after working some years as a senior development engineer and dealing with the design of advanced electronic circuits, FPGA programming and experimental characterization of avalanche photodiodes for single-photon counting, both in Silicon and InGaAs/InP. Previously, he was a Research Assistant in the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering at POLIMI. In the summer of 2014, he worked at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY, where he worked on the characterization of ULSI circuits using optical (non-invasive) testing. His main research interest is in the development of electronics for single-photon diodes, both in the visible and near-infrared, for biomedical applications, physics studies, quantum communications, and quantum sensing.
