Micro and Nanostructured Materials Group

research activity concerns the synthesis and characterisation of nanostructured films and surfaces, clusters and nanostructures via physical vapour deposition methods, with an approach based on both experimental and theoretical expertise in the physics of matter field (solid state physics, surface physics, plasma physics). The aim is to investigate the relationship between nanoscale structure and functional properties (e.g. electronic, optical, mechanical, etc.) and the radiation-matter interaction in such systems, mainly employing advanced microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. Besides studying model nanostructures for fundamental research projects, it is of interest to develop novel materials (e.g. metals, metal oxides, semiconductors, carbon structures) and nanotechnologies, in view of innovative applications in many fields, particularly in the energy sector (photovoltaic, photo catalysis, nuclear fission and fusion, etc.).
