07/05/2015 - In the aula Magna of the University of Torino took place the ceremony to award the best thesis of the academic year 2012/2013.
The selection board of the masters degree in "Science applied to Cultural Heritage" has awarded this recognition to Dr. Gianluca Gariani, for his thesis entitled
"Use of Ion microscopy techniques and X-ray fluorescence for a provenance study of lapis lazuli: new data on mineral chemistry of rocks from historical quarries and
first results on archaeological artifacts" .
(tutor: Alessandro Re, co-tutor: D. Angelici, G. Vaggelli)
27/04/2015 - Among the awards conferred by the Italian President Sergio Mattarella in the Quirinale Palace in Rome, during the Italian Quality Day and the Leonardo Prizes Awarding Ceremony 2014,
the Linda Cena” 2014 graduation award, founded by Bracco Foundation, has been assigned to
Dr. Novella Coviello for her thesis entitled: “X-ray Computed Tomography: an image processing technique for the study of Cultural Heritage”
(supervisor: Alessandro Re, co-supervisor: S. De Blasi - CCR "La Venaria Reale")
10/04/2015 - PhD graduate and former post-doc Daniele Gatto Monticone is awarded the "Resmini" prize by the 5th Commission of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics for his PhD dissertation "Creation and characterization of luminescent centres in diamond for applications as single photon emitters" (Supervisor: E. Vittone, tutors: P. Olivero, G. Amato, M. Genovese).
20 march 2015 - At the AIAr (Associazione Italiana di Archeometria) conference in Palermo, Alessandro Re
was awarded of the "Salvatore Improta prize 2014" dedicated to young researchers active in Archaeometry.

Under the guidance of Prof. Claudio Manfredotti,
the Solid State Physics group started its activity in the early 1980s
in the field of amorphous (a-Si:H) and crystalline (e.g. Si, CdTe)
semiconductor materials, mainly for the fabrication of solar cells and ionization radiation detectors.
In the course of these three decades, the group has gradually extended its field of interest to the study of micro/nano-structured materials and devices
and to the development of new experimental techniques for the characterization and modification of advanced materials and/or art objects.
At the moment, the group is working on the following main research topics:
