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 Solid State Physics Group participates to the organization of the conference "From Foundations of Quantum Mechanics to Quantum Information and Quantum Metrology & Sensing" (Quantum2017), which will be held at the Rectorate of the University of Torino. The purpose of Quantum2017 is to favour the exchange of ideas and discussion on last results among leading physicists working in the interconnected fields of Quantum Metrology - Sensing & Imaging, Quantum Information and Foundations of Quantum Mechanics, in particular in the framework of quantum optics.

A report on the Research Platform of the University of Torino (Frida) summarizes the main outcomes of the "Advanced Diamond-based Nano technologies" (A.Di.N-Tech.) project funded from 2013 to 2015 in the framework of the "University Research Projects - Junior PI Grants" program and coordinated by P. Olivero.
