Advanced Devices

Starting from the different class of advanced materials studied and developed in NANOTEC, the Advanced Devices area focus on the integration of these materials into functional and multifunctional structures and devices with enhanced or new properties.   Large efforts are devoted to research and technology development at the nanoscale by using both, the bottom-up and top-down approaches, to allow (nano) structures, microarrays and components to be designed and fabricated for the realization of discrete electronic/photonic components of direct industrial and societal interest and for a wide range of applications. Devices such next generation of energy-saving light sources, low power and high speed electronics device, new generation of photovoltaic devices, spintronic devices based on single magnetic molecules/nanoparticles and on charge/spin transport, advanced sensors, catalytic devices are explored with a multidisciplinary approach and developed up to prototype level.

Photovoltaics
