CNISM - National Interuniversity Consortium for the Physical Sciences of Matter


The University of Milano-Bicocca is  member of  the National Interuniversity Consortium for the Physical Sciences of Matter (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Scienze Fisiche della Materia – CNISM.
The activities of  the CNISM Research Unit at the Department of Materials Science are devoted to the:

  • Growth and optical and vibrational spectroscopy  of semiconductor quantum dots and heretostructures
  • Optical and dielectric properties of  oxide nanostructures for photonic technology
  • Thin films for applications in photonics and optoelectronics
  • Simulation and modeling of  the epitaxial growth of semiconductor nanostructures
  • Growth, optical properties and photophysics  of  organic molecular semiconductors
  • Chemical physics of the surface of semiconductors for gas sensing and photovoltaic applications
  • Ab-initio study of low dimensional  systems
  • Ab-initio simulations of materials for non-volatile electronic memories.
