Cesare Montesano

  • PhD student
  • University of Trento

Hello there, my name is Cesare Montesano, I am a PhD student in the ”Atomic and Molecular Physics” laboratory, under the supervision of professor Paolo Tosi. I am actually trying to save the world by investigating the nanosecond pulsed discharges as a possible technology to tackle the energy storage challenge. For further information please attend my talk.
Few words on my academic formation; I graduated from the Politecnico of Torino with a bachelor Degree in Physics Engineering. I moved in Trento to attend a Master in Experimental Physics and here I found my research interests in the physics of non-thermal plasmas and electrical discharges.
With the residual energies I have after the lab I like to trek in the mountains and explore this wonderful province.


  • Plasma discharges for energy storage: the case of Dry Reforming of Methane

    One of the most significant challenges of our century is the replacement of fossil fuels with clean energy sources, in particular renewable ones. However, renewable energy sources (RES) are both intermittent and inhomogeneous on the globe. A promising approach to tackle these limitations is the so-called Power-to-Fuel technology. It consists in the conversion of electrical […]
