Short description: 

Luiz Tizei has a Bachelor in Physics (2005) from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP, Campinas, Brazil). In 2008, he finished his master's degree at the Instituto de Fisica "Gleb Wataghin" (IFGW) at UNICAMP. His dissertation was supervised by Prof. Daniel Ugarte and was focused on quantitative analysis of atomically resolved transmission electron microscopy images of III-V semiconductors. In 2011, he obtained the title of doctor also from the IFGW at UNICAMP under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Ugarte and Prof. Mônica Cotta (co-advisor), with a thesis concentrated on the chemical and physical properties of III-V semiconductor nanowires. He then joined the STEM group at the LPS (Orsay, France) for a post-doc between 2011 and 2013, during which he built a light intensity inteferometer to detect single photon sources excited by fast electrons (cathodoluminescence) in an electron microscope. The first demonstration of this effect in NV0 centers in diamonds was achieved in late 2012. In late 2013 he left the STEM group and joined Kazu Suenaga at the AIST (Tsukuba, Japan) for post-doc, during which he studied the physical and chemical properties of low dimensionality structures (single atoms, carbon nanotubes, atomic chains, 2D monolayers) using electron microscopy techniques. In December 2014 he was hired by the CNRS to work at the LPS.
