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:


24 november 2023
Our group is involved in the organization of "Arte e' Scienza: Una, nessuna, centomila: le discipline dell'archeometria". During the round table, at the Egyptian Museum on November 24th, h. 17.30, the figure of Debora Angelici, our unforgettable colleague devoted to cultural heritage studies, will be celebrated
29-30 september 2023
On the 29th and 30th of September, our group participated in the activities organized by the University in the framework of the European Researchers' Night. Thanks to talks and stand demonstrations, the general public was able to discover how physical techniques can be used to study ancient and artistic materials from our Cultural Heritage.
