Optronic Sensing

Research activities aims to strengthen significantly science and technology (S&T) capacity in emerging multifunctional two-dimensional materials and heterostructures coupled to low-loss multicomponent plasmonic nanosystems covering the whole NIR-VIS-UV range, to be exploited as optronic nanosystems in label-free non-invasive biosensing.

The goal is the establishment of a consolidated scientific and technical platform in the area of multifunctional nanomaterials  for biosensing that can be exploited in various fields of food safety, security and biodefense, forensics, environmental monitoring, life science, point of care, home diagnostics and medicine. Other potential target markets are automotive and aerospace.

Research Topics:

The breadth of disciplines that we contribute to for reinforcing capacity and knowledge in optronic  biosensing systems science, research and technology involves:

TERAMETANANO - International Conference on Terahertz Emission, Metamaterials and Nanophotonics

TERAMETANANO - IV ed.

Castello Carlo V, Lecce 27 -31 Maggio 2019

The IV edition of TERAMETANANO, the International Conference on Terahertz Emission, Metamaterials and Nanophotonics, will take place in Lecce (Italy) from 27 to 31 of May 2019 in the 16th-century Castle of Charles V   with two special nights that will be held in an original Theatre of Roman period.

 

TERAMETANANO is an annual conference that gather physicists studying a wide variety of phenomena in the areas of nano-structuresnano-photonics and meta-materials, with special attention to the coupling between light and matter and in a broad range of wavelengths, going from the visible up to the terahertz.

 

Al via la fase 2 del Tecnopolo per la medicina di precisione

Firmata convenzione tra Regione, Università e Cnr per avvio seconda fase del Tecnopolo

Bari, 27 novembre 2018 

Sottoscritto stamane l’accordo tra Regione PugliaCnr Consiglio nazionale delle ricerche, Irccs Giovanni Paolo II di Bari e Università di Bari per l’avvio della seconda fase del Tecnopolo per la Medicina di Precisione. Sede del tecnopolo, il CnrNanotec.

“La sfida della medicina moderna è tradurre nella pratica clinica gli enormi progressi compiuti dalla scienza e dalla tecnologia. In questo contesto le nanotecnologie, focalizzate sull’indagine e sulla manipolazione della materia a livello nanometrico-molecolare, si presentano come uno strumento potentissimo al servizio della medicina di precisione, la nuova frontiera che punta allo sviluppo di trattamenti personalizzati per il singolo paziente”, afferma  Giuseppe Gigli, direttore di Cnr Nanotec e coordinatore del Tecnopolo.
