Inter-University Center for Nanometric Epitaxial Structures on Silicon and Spintronics

L-NessThe Laboratory for Epitaxial Nanostructures on Silicon and Spintronics (L-NESS)  is a joint research center of University of Milano Bicocca and Politecnico di Milano, established in 2002 by Prof. Leo Miglio of the Department of Materials Science, with Politecnico colleagues of the Department of Physics and the Department of Electronics, and Prof. Hans von Känel from the Department of Physics of ETH Zürich.

The main laboratories are located at the Politecnico  site in Como, equipped by MBE and CVD deposition systems, clean room, optical lithography, XRD, AFM, electrical station,  e-beam lithography. Partners laboratories of PL and Raman spectroscopy, materials modeling, and  PV cells material characterization are located at the Department of Materials Science of the University of Milano Bicocca.

Running research activities are mainly focused on group IV and III-V semiconductors and graphene for microelectronic, optoelectronic and energy-saving/production applications. L-NESS gives a unique opportunity to work in one international environment, fully equipped with high-tech deposition and micro-fabrication tools.
