I-ZEB : verso edifici intelligenti a
energia zero per la crescita di citta' intelligenti.
Cofinanziato da Regione Lombardia
nell'ambito del terzo accordo quadro
con CNR, il progetto e' coordinato da
CNR-ITC e partecipato da 11 istituti dell'
area milanese. L'unita' di ricerca di CNR-
IFN Milano (Tersilla Virgili, Monica
Bollani e Silvia Pietralunga)
e' coinvolta
con le seguenti attivita' di ricerca:
- caratterizzazione fotofisica di materiali
organici, inorganici ed ibridi tramite spettroscopia ultraveloce.
-  caratterizzazione composizionale di
superfici mediante micro-spettroscopia
- micro e nano fabbricazione di strutture
per celle solari di terza generazione.

From Artificial Intelligence to the
Quantum Mind at the IOP Public
Events Autumn 2018 in London


On Wednesday 31 October 6.30pm
Dr Enrico Prati of CNR-IFN

will give a public speech on the parallel
between Moore's law of semiconductor microelectronics and the current revolution
in quantum compu-ting. Deep, or machine, learning already outperforms human
abilities for some specialised tasks, but its implemen-
tation using quantum-based hardware will enable an even more powerful learning
architectures to be developed.
TEDx speaker Enrico Prati discusses how
the combination of machine learning and quantum hardware might soon emulate
human ability with novel and
unprecedented capabilities.




BepiColombo verso Mercurio: il contributo
IFN alla missione

L'IFN ha curato parte dell'avanzatissima
strumentazione ottica a bordo della sonda ESA/JAXA BepiColombo lanciata il 20 ottobre
da Kourou, nella Guyana francese, e diretta verso il pianeta Mercurio. I ricercatori dell'
IFN sono stati coinvolti nella realizzazione
degli strumenti: ELENA/SERENA, PHebus e SIMBIO-SYS.

2018 Nobel prize in Physics goes to Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland
for their groundbreaking inventions in the
field of laser physics!

IFN researchers were able to laser write
both a single NV center (qubit) and a coupled waveguide (quantum channel) in diamond
using fs-laser writing.
This platform could be scaled to make
quantum information systems and nanoscale
and ultrasensitive magnetic and electric
field sensors.
Check it out here and here.

IFN researchers contribute to the demon-stration of a millimetre-sized device that   detects a single molecule. Such a label-free sensor is based on an electrolite gated     organic field effect transistor (EGOFET) including a gate bio-functionalized with nanometer-thick self-assembled monolayers.
