The Physics Department at the Politecnico di Milano, thanks to an agreement with the Polytechnic School in Zurich (ETHZ) and the extremely important support of the Como Campus, created a facility for research and technological transfer on nanostructured materials in Como. The structure is an integral part of the L-NESS Inter-university Centre (Laboratory for Silicon Epitaxial Nanostructures and Spintronics) founded with the University of Milano-Bicocca.

The multidisciplinary approach of the L-NESS is reflected in intense collaborations among researchers active in the growth of materials, their characterization and their atomistic modeling. Finally, a strong emphasis is placed on developing strategic partnerships with the global high-tech industry.

Research activities:

  • Silicon Germanium Epitaxy
  • Nanoscale Device Group
  • Droplet epitaxy for Advanced NanoTEchnology
  • Spin Electronics Group
  • Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy

Master of Science in Engineering Physics
