The Laboratory for Epitaxial Nanostructures on Silicon and Spintronics (L-NESS) is an Inter-University research center of the University of Milano Bicocca and the Polytechnic of Milano, founded in 2012 by Prof. Leo Miglio of the Department of Materials Science, with colleagues from the Physics Department of the Polytechnic of Milano (Prof. Franco Ciccacci and Prof. Alfredo Dupasquier) and Prof. Hans von Känel from the Physics Department of the Zurich Polytechnic (ETH Zürich). The Scientific Committee sees the participation, by the Department of Materials Science, of Prof. Simona Binetti, Prof. Leo Miglio, Prof. Francesco Montalenti and Prof. Stefano Sanguinetti.
The registered site, at the Polo di Como of the Polytechnic of Milano, hosts the MBE and the LEPECVD deposition systems, a cleanroom with optical lithography, an X-ray diffraction apparatus, two atomic force microscopes, an electrical station and a e-beam lithography apparatus. Additional L-NESS sites are present at the Department of Physics of the Polytechnic of Milano and at the Department of Materials Science of the University of Milan Bicocca. In Milano Bicocca University instrumentation and skills of photoluminescence and Raman spectroscopy, growth and modeling of epitaxial heterostructures and three-dimensional nanostructures, growth and characterization of PV cells are present.
The current research activities are aimed at the development and study of devices realized by the integration of semiconductors of the IV-IV and III-V groups for microelectronic, optoelectronic, quantum photonics and energy applications. A relevant line of research, dedicated to graphene and its applications in the field of electronics, is also active and well inserted in the EU flagship.
Several researchers, or professors, of the Como site are foreigners. L-NESS thus provides a unique opportunity to work in an international environment, fully equipped with high-tech deposition and micro-manufacturing tools.
