Functional thin films and surface nano-engineering (FunSurf)

The leading activity of FunSurf team is the chemical synthesis of functional materials engineered at different dimensions (i.e. thin films, nanostructures, nanowire networks) to realize innovative devices or to develop advanced surface functionalities.
Our common approaches are based on the development of synthesis processes, on the exploitation of specific shaping of material like nanowires networks and on the understanding by physical modeling and simulation.


Research axis

Within applied and fundamental studies we focus on optimizing the synthesis and properties of functional nanomaterials through the control and fundamental understanding of growth mechanisms, structure-properties relationships, reactions at interfaces and functionalization processes.
