The future of ram memories goes nano

Press release 28th July 2017

An international research team, coordinated by Istituto officina dei materiali Trieste, and in collaboration with two Cnr institutes,  Istituto per lo studio dei materiali nanostrutturati (Bologna) and Spin institute (Napoli) has been able to quantify at a nanometer level (nanometer, a distance corresponding to 1 billionth of a meter) the ‘critical thickness’ of some relevant spintronics material (spintornics=spin transport electronics)

Optical Remote Sensing

Institutional Area

Irea is a scientific and technological research institute of CNR; it is affiliated to the Department of Engineering - ICT and Technology for Energy and Transport (DIITET). Irea has consolidated expertise in the fields of optical remote sensing. Optical Remote Sensing deals with those part of electromagnetic spectrum characterised by the wavelengths from the visible (0.4 micrometer) to the near infrared (NIR) up to thermal infrared (TIR, 15 micrometer), collecting radiation reflected and emitted from the observed surfaces 

Processes and technologies for the valorization of wastes and biomasses

Institutional Area

The Institute of Research on Combustion (Irc) carries out research in areas of strategic importance for the national level of innovation, with implications on several fields: energy, industry, safety, environment, new materials. Activities, carried out at both theoretical and experimental level, aim to the develop combustion processes with low environmental impact and to develop new technologies for thermo-valorization of wastes, biomass and alternative fuels
