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.

    Science coffee. Tre scienziate si raccontano: Luisa Torsi, Loretta L del Mercato, Eva Degl’Innocenti
    Bari – Fiera del Levante, 20 settembre 2019 – 17.30

    Luisa Torsi, chimica, docente all’Università degli Studi di Bari e alla ABO Akademi University in Finlandia, tra le protagoniste della mostra della Fondazione Bracco .
    Loretta L del Mercato, biotecnologa – Ricercatrice CNR Nanotec. Esperta nell’uso delle nanotecnologie applicate in campo biomedico. Attualmente la ricerca si concentra sullo sviluppo di modelli cellulari di tumore del pancreas che consentano di testare l’efficacia di diverse terapie anticancro. Coordina il progetto ERC-StG “INTERCELLMED” finanziato dal Consiglio europeo della ricerca (Erc).
