Under the guidance of Prof. Claudio Manfredotti, the Solid State Physics group of the University of Torino, Physics Department,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:

4 November 2022
On 4th November 2022 the event "Un Pomeriggio Brillante" took place. The donors who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign "Fai Brillare la Ricerca" were involved by our research group in the presentation of our activities and in an interactive visit to the laboratories. Besides the rewarding purpose of the event, it has been a great pleasure to open our research to the external world.
