__Associate Professor of Physics__ (from **1967** to **2007**) at the *University of Milan* and __Theoretician__
(from **1967** to **1997**) at the *Institute of Plasma Physics (IFP-CNR) of Milan (Italy)*, A.O. participated
(from **1983** to **1993**) in the *ECW Plasma Heating Program of the Joint European Torus of Culham (Oxfordshire,UK)*,
under a number of Contracts: *JET Contract JB2/9005 (1983); JET Contract JTA/9001 (1986); JET Contract JT6/9004 (1988);
JET Contract JJ8/9009 (1990)*.

A.O. mainy operated in the field of __THERMONUCLEAR PLASMA PHYSICS__ (which he quit in 1997) and
of __WAVE MECHANICS__ (where he's still active nowadays, 2015).

__Thermonuclear Plasma Physics__

In connection with the the Jet Joint Undertaking collaboration, A.O. __has extensively developed__ the Relativistic Theory of Electron
Cyclotron Electromagnetic Waves (ECEW) in Fusion Plasmas, __discovering__ the exact recurrence expressions holding for the relativistic
dispersion relation both of Maxwellian and non-Maxwellian (supra-thermal) electron distributions, __and passing then__ to the general
quasi-linear theory of plasma absorption and emission in toroidal plasmas.

The theory was successively extended to the ECEW Polarization Evolution in Sheared Thermonuclear Plasmas and to the quasi-optical
propagation of Gaussian beams of ECEW in Tokamak Plasmas [**1-13**].

__Wave Mechanics__

Passing then to the field of theoretical Wave Mechanics, A.O. extended the mathematical methods previously contrived for the quasi-optical
theory of Gaussian beams of ECEW to the determination (within the same quasi-optical approximation) of the electron trajectories associated
with the time-independent Schrödinger equation [**14**].

He considered, in the following, the case of the Mössbauer effect, arriving at a new and exact integral formulation of the Debye-Waller
relation [**15-19**], passing finally (after having discovered *the general possibility of describing any kind of mono-chromatic wave-like features in
terms of ray-trajectories)* to show that for monochromatic matter waves the usual constraints of the Uncertainty Principle may be eluded,
allowing an exact (both classical and relativistic) formulation of the particle trajectories, avoiding the statistical concepts involved
both by the Copenhagen and Bohmian approaches [**20-22**].
