Strategic Goals

General goals of the Materials Science Department include competitive Research & Development and Advanced Training in the field of new materials and their industrial applications.

Theoretical and experimental studies are carried out in several fields such as ionic conductors, electrochemistry, molecular electronics, laser, molecular modelling, insulator oxides, non-linear optics, polymers, semiconductors, sensors, organic and inorganic synthesis, superconductors, luminescence, glass, optical fibres. Beside the main spectroscopic and electrical characterization techniques, advanced materials analysis is achieved by means of AFM, STM, ESR, FIB, NMR, luminescence and electron microscopy.

The research activities are also devoted to specific application fields like new materials and techniques for energy, environment and cultural heritage.

Research is carried out within the framework of national and international projects, leading to a great number of publications and patents.
