LENS is presently an active member of the LASERLAB-EUROPE consortium, constituted by 18 large laser infrastructures operating in different European countries providing access to the different laser facilities to external visiting scientists with the financial support of the European Union. The research fields at LENS nowadays cover a wide spectrum of subjects, from atomic physics to photochemistry, biochemistry and biophysics, from material science to photonics, from art restoration and preservation to solid and liquid state physics.
This is a three-year curriculum for Master graduated students in Science or Technology. The aim of the School is the formation of scientists or science-related professionals by a research training in the synthesis, the characterisation or the modeling of nanostructures, either organic, inorganic or biologic in nature.
CIGA's mission is making researches on ethical and social implications of nanotechnology; analysing the frameworks of legal regulation of new technologies and namely of nanotechnologies; promoting interdiciplinary exchanges on these topics; improving the public debate on implications of new technologies.
The group's research is about understanding the behavior of materials on the basis of their chemical structure and its effects on large length and timescales. For this reason, they develop and apply simulation methods and theory to study polymeric materials, nanomaterials and more in general soft matter.
The main goal of the Master is to train professionals in the design, fabrication and characterization of nano- and micro- systems for different applications, such as sensors and actuators, photonics, BioMEMS, with high scientific and industrial impact. The Master will offer an educational portfolio that includes four thematic areas: Bio NEMS - MEMS, photonic NEMS-MEMS, NEMS-MEMS for sensors and actuators, NEMS MEMS for the alternative energy sources and environmental monitoring.
The MOSE laboratory deals with theory, simulation and modeling in three different areas: process simulation, material science (mesoscale modeling and simulation in the field of nano science and nanotechnology) and life science.
Veneto Nanotech was established with the objective to build international excellence in research, to foster the application of nanotechnology, and to support the development of start-ups in the focus sector.
