presentazione IFN Roma

The IFN - CNR Rome unit, formerly Istituto di Elettronica dello Stato Solido (IESS), was founded by the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in 1969. Since then Institute has devoted its activity to applications of solid state physics and to the development, fabrication and characterisation of electronic devices.

Present research focuses on the micro and nano fabrication and on the nano technologies for realising electronic, optoelectronic and photonic advanced devices.

Exploiting a facility for in-house micro-fabrication, the institute is active in the development and realisation of semiconductor and superconductor devices, advanced devices based on Josephson junctions, micro-mechanical structures on Silicon and Silicon Nitride. Advanced lithographic techniques with electron beam and scanning microscopic probe are also developed.

The Institute can take advantage of several micro-characterisation facilities as AFM, SEM and an X-ray laboratory which exploits advanced X-ray microscopy and microdiffraction techniques
