Livio Filippin PhD

trainee patent attorney

About Livio Filippin


Branches:
Physics, Optics


Qualifications:
Université libre de Bruxelles (Brussels, Belgium)/Malmö Högskola (Malmö, Sweden), Atomic Physics.
Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy), Nuclear Engineering.

Profile:
After obtaining his PhD degree from Université libre de Bruxelles, Livio started working as a trainee patent attorney at Arnold & Siedsma in 2018. His PhD thesis, entitled Relativistic study of electron correlation effects on polarizabilities, two-photon decay rates and hyperfine structures in atomic and ionic systems: ab initio and semi-empirical approaches is set within the framework of relativistic quantum mechanics, born from the union of Einstein’s theory of special relativity and the formalism of quantum mechanics. It first aimed at performing relativistic calculations of polarizabilities and two-photon decay rates in hydrogenic and alkali-like systems. The second aim of this thesis was the relativistic multiconfiguration calculation of electronic isotope-shift factors in many-electron atoms.

During his doctorate at Université libre de Bruxelles he accumulated knowledge in fundamental quantum mechanics and computational physics, leading to a number of publications. Livio worked in a international environment, as he was an effective member of CompAS  and BriX collaborations.
