The Solid State Physics group is mainly involved in the investigation on insulating, semiconducting and superconducting materials, as well as on devices obtained from them.
Core research topics derive from multi-year experience in the field of nuclear semiconducting detectors, that in recent years have been enlarged towards
- advanced materials, like diamond, cubic boron nitride and silicon carbide
- new combination of materials for thin film and dye-sensitised solar cells
- new techniques for the selective modification of materials - concerning morphology and properties of both surface and bulk - involving surface functionalisation, microfabrication and creation of nano- and microstructures
- new and emerging applications such as biosensors, diamond based electrodes, thin film and dye sensitised solar cells
- physics applied to cultural heritage
Both basic and applied research in this broad field require the combined approach with a huge number of different microscopic and spectroscopic techniques, together with customised electrical signals detection and characterisation. As such a combined approach needs the mixing of different skills and abilities, the Solid State Physics group works in collaboration with several national and international research groups, as well as with national and international ion beam facilities, focussed on similar investigation topics.
At the moment, the group is working on these main research topics:
- semiconducting and insulating materials characterisation
- Materials and devices characterisation by means of Ion Beam Analysis
- Poly-, mono- and nanocrystalline diamond characterisation and functionalisation (also biofunctionalisation)
- Microfabrication and functionalisation by means of Deep Ion Beam Lithography (DIBL)
- CVD diamond detectors and dosimeters for X-ray radiology - radiotherapy
- Diamond-based biosensors and electrodes
- Production and characterisation of high and medium critical temperature superconducting materials
- Dye-sensitised solar cells
- Physics applied to cultural heritage
