We develop new materials and processes for micro and nanostructures with applications in MEMS, NEMS, photonics and biochemical devices (through the coordination of the LATEMAR Network of Excellence).
The research activities are performed in collaboration with several Industrial Partners and Academic Laboratories.
Our facilities are located at the Politecnico di Torino and in the Materials and Microsystems Laboratory of Chivasso (TO).
We are involved in a partnership agreement with Trustech company, jointly managing the technological facilities located in Techfab .
In October 2009 the Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) funded its new Center for Space Human Robotic "IIT@PoliTo" in collaboration with the Politecnico di Torino.
The Group and IIT@PoliTo are actively collaborating, sharing their facilities
We are also involved in the "Nanofacility Piemonte Laboratory", which is located at INRIM (Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica) and supported by "Compagnia di san Paolo". This facility is dedicated to nano-fabrication and characterization of materials and devices. The facility is sheared by INRIM, PoliTo and UniTo.
The Materials and Microsystems Laboratory, was established in 1999 and it is placed in Chivasso (Torino). It is managed by Polytechnic of Turin. People operating within the Lab collects both technological and fundamental knowledge of material science (both growth and characterization of dielectrics and metals), design and fabrication of devices, circuits and systems dealing with MEMS, micro-photonics and micro-sensors technology.
The LATEMAR (Laboratorio di Tecnologie Elettrobiochimiche Miniaturizzate per l'Analisi e la Ricerca) is a Centre of Excellence funded by MIUR for public and private research structures operating in strategic fields for the Nation. It's a DIFFUSED LABORATORY that merges and coordinates Centres of Excellence in the basic research related to the development of micro and nano-devices and sensors for genomics and post-genomics together with R&D centres of extremely qualified Companies.
