"Photovoltaics (PV) based on Silicon (Si) semiconductors is one the most growing technology in the World for renewable, sustainable, non-polluting, widely available clean energy sources. Theoretical and applied research aims at increasing the conversion efficiency of PV modules and their lifetime. The Si crystalline microstructure has an important role on both issues. Grain boundaries introduce ad ...

"Writing a literary history (or a chapter of it) from the point of view of images represents an attempt both innovative and ambitious. The project aims at bringing a theoretical and practical contribution to a vast transdisciplinary discussion concerning: 1) forms and functions of the word/image relation in Renaissance visual and literary culture; 2) the status of Ariosto’s Orlando furioso as a ca ...

In the Arabian peninsula, before the advent of Islam some distinctive civilizations flourished with a remarkable cultural level and left behind an important epigraphic and artistic wealth in terms of quality and interest. The history of these cultures is known almost exclusively by epigraphic material. In fact, the majority of texts that the inhabitants of Arabia have left us are the inscriptions ...

Diophantine problems have always been a central topic in Number Theory, and have shown deep links with other basic mathematical topics, like Algebraic and Complex Geometry. Our research plan focuses on some issues in this realm, which are strictly interrelated. In the last years the PI and collaborators obtained several results on integral and algebraic points on varieties, which have inspired muc ...

Indirect excitons are bosonic quasi-particles in semiconductors with unique properties: they have long lifetime and spin-relaxation time, can travel over large distances before recombination, can be cooled down to low temperatures and form a quantum gas, and can be controlled by voltage in-situ. Due to these properties, they form a model system both for the studies of fundamental properties of lig ...

"The aim of this project is the realization of a new class of electrical devices, in which mechanical deformation of a nano-object are used to tune its electronic transport properties. This is done through the use of radiation-pressure actuated optical forces on suspended one-dimensional electronic systems, such as semiconductor nanowires.While research in opto-mechanical systems and electro-mecha ...

"The proposed ITN will support close collaboration between 8 highly experienced and complementary European teams, who in all cases are working at the forefront of semiconductor science, photonics and materials technology. The real value that is offered by our collaboration will be realized by the generation of new, genuinely disruptive hybrid-semiconductor optoelectronic technologies. It will also ...

"A first objective of this proposal is to construct large numbers of new G2 manifolds by extending Kovalev's ``connect sum"" construction to a larger class of 3-folds. This will be achieved via a combination of differential, algebraic and analytic methods which will lead to a very good understanding of the topology of these manifolds, of the relationship to the geometry of the generating 3-folds, ...

The aim of this project is to investigate how dissipation influences the geometric phases and geometric pumping in quantum solid-state devices and to assess the role of geometric manipulations in future ICT applications. Since all realistic solid-state devices suffer from dissipation due to their coupling to uncontrolled environment with many degrees of freedom it is crucial to understand how the ...

We propose an Initial Training Network for advanced nanoscale semiconductor spintronics. This is a coordinated programme of technological, experimental and theoretical research, training and knowledge transfer, by a consortium of leading European academic and industrial research groups. Spintronics is becoming increasingly important as downscaling and power usage in microelectronics approaches fun ...

In this project, we will investigate the quantum properties of nanoscale mechanical resonators. Suspended structures will be made of Al, SiN, GaAs, carbon nanotubes, and photonic crystals, covering frequencies in the MHz and GHz range. The vibrations will be excited by electrical means. To overcome the thermal noise, cooling of the low-frequency resonators will be performed. We will use two coolin ...

"This project aims at creating a multimedia archive of the printed works of Anton Francesco Doni, who was not only an author but also a typographer, a publisher and a member of the Giolito and Marcolini’s editorial staff. The analysis of Doni’s work may be a good way to investigate appropriation, text rewriting and image reusing practices which are typical of several authors of the 16th Century, a ...

This is a mobility project for Dr David Sauzin, a most experienced French CNRS researcher in mathematics, for two years in Pisa, at the SNS (CRM research center E. de Giorgi), to collaborate with prof. Stefano Marmi. The goal of the project is to develope innovative applications of Ecalle's theory of resurgent functions and Borel's theory of monogenic functions in various problems of asymptotic an ...
