Physical sciences and technologies of matter
The Cnr Department of Physical science and material technologies coordinates the physical-material area. The fundamental thematic research areas are the development of nano-structures based on semiconductors, oxides, organic and magnetic materials, superconductors and hybrids, laser and photonic systems, sensors and devices with microelectronics applications, energy, health care and ict; advances instrumentation and new methods of investigation in order to extend the knowledge regarding the science of soft condensed material, the complex material and the biological systems at all levels.
In the quantum science and technology field, the technologies that concern the manipulation and transfer of information have a great part, having the ultimate aim of contributing to the realization of devices for the data processing, with unmatchable characteristics, if compared to the classical systems.
Meganne Christian from Imm-Cnr is involved in an exciting experiment in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) to test the viability of graphene for space applications. Follow her activity on the blog of the experiment
Cnr Institutes (Iom-Trieste, Ismn-Bologna and Spin-Napoli) determine the ‘critical thickness’ in spintronic materials, with perspectives towards highly performing magnetic storage and memories. The study has been published on ‘Nature Communication’
The international school on computational microscopy (Iscm) is organized by the Institute of applied sciences and intelligent systems (Isasi-Cnr). Its first edition, Iscm2017, will be focused on 'Label free and quantitative phase imaging techniques'. The school will be held at Hotel La Bussola in Amalfi (Italy), from the 5th to the 8th of September 2017
The NANOSMAT conference series has rapidly grown and spread in Europe, Asia and USA. NANOSMAT is actually well established as a premier conference in the field of materials related Nanoscience, Engineering and Nanotechnology
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market
Graphene Factory is a Cnr portal focused on graphene and two-dimensional materials research. The aim is to promote and support this research throughout the CNR network, offering information and services to the scientific community, industrial partners and citizens
