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.
Now, the group is working on the following main research topics:

Upcoming Events



The 3-years projects "Beyond Classical Optical Metrology" (BeCOMe) and "Single‐photon sources as new quantum standards" (SIQUST) are selected for funding with planned budgets of respectively 1.7 M€ and 1.8 M€ by the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR) of the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET). The projects are locally coordinated at UniTo by Paolo Olivero. The SIQUST project also funds the Torino Section of INFN.
