Physics of condensed matter, atoms and molecules

The research activity carried out by the members of the Physics of Condensed Matter, Atoms and Molecules group deals with fundamental issues related to physical properties of condensed matter and of advanced knowledge-based materials. The research is fully integrated in the national and international scenario and is funded by national and international projects.

The focus is mainly on physical properties of materials and devices with high technological potential and social relevance (e.g. nano-materials and quantum materials for electronic, biosensing and energy applications,) and on the development of advanced methods in the field of synchrotron radiation and laser spectroscopy.

Many research activities are carried out in collaboration with the Italian National Research Council (CNR) and with renowned Universities and research centres at national and international level and large scale facilities.

Some members of the group are active in the Technology Transfer and are affiliated to the CIRI-MAM center through consultancy and contract collaboration with Italian SMEs. Several patents have been produced as a result of this activity.
