In the framework of the Galileo program, the UniversitÓ Italo-Francese approved a research project submitted by Jacopo Corsi and Alessandro Lo Giudice in collaboration with the UniversitÚ d'Orleans and several Italian museums. The funded project entitled "Ancient silver coinages between the Po and Rhone rivers " deals with the characterization of ancient silver coins circulating during Iron age between the two sides of the Alps. Iron age coins from northern Italy have already been analysed by the Solid State Physics Group at the ISIS spallation source (UK), where the Communication and Media Department published an article about this research.
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:
- Semiconductor materials and basic devices: compositional, structural and functional characterization by means of MeV Ion Beam techniques
- The physics of diamond: characterization, and selective modification at the nano/micro scale; applications in bio-sensing and quantum optics
- Production and characterisation of high and medium critical temperature superconducting materials
- Nanostructured materials
- Physics applied to cultural heritage
- Bioinspired hierarchical materials
