Our research is mainly devoted to the experimental investigation of semiconductors, oxides, and their interfaces, silicon and germanium nanostructures, MoS2 growth, and magnetic thin films for advanced and innovative nanoelectronic, spintronic, and neuroelectronic devices. The research activity is carried out in strong collaboration with the CNR-IMM-MDM and leading semiconductor industries, Micron and ST.
The study of QD-based devices (colloidal nanoparticles of PbS, CdSe, CdS, Au) is carried out using charge and spin transport aiming at the understanding of strongly correlated few electrons/excitons systems and their possible applications, such as reservoir computing and quantum computing.
TMDC are grown with a novel patented method and their properties characterized with Raman spectroscopy (Collaboration with E. Bonera) and electrical measurements. Magnetic thin films deposited at CNR-MDM for spintronics are characterized with broad band FMR. (Collaboration with R. Mantovan and M. Belli, CNR-IMM).
