The Condensed Matter Theory Group in Napoli
The group was born in the late ’60 of the last century. The first activity concerned impurity states in semiconductors. Then the interest pointed towards the study of metallic and semiconducting surfaces.
The research about polaronic effects in polar semiconductors and in bipolaron formation started in the beginning of the ’80. Next the research concentrated on the properties of correlated systems like cuprates and manganites.
From the mid of the ’90 an activity about the porous Silicon took place and that about mesoscopic systems strengthened. This research line then evolved towards the study of nanoscopic systems.
Nowadays in our group you find the following main research activities.
Main research activities:
- Strongly correlated systems (prof. Vittorio Cataudella)
- Material surfaces and nanostructures (prof. Domenico Ninno)
- Electronic properties and transport in quantum systems and devices (prof. Arturo Tagliacozzo)
