The Epitaxy and Physics of Nanostructures laboratory investigates the epitaxial growth mechanism and the physics of a variety of semiconductor structures. In particular, we undertake fundamental studies of the growth mechanism and the optical properties of site controlled quantum dots (QDs) obtained by growing in pre-patterned GaAs substrates. Our field of interest spans as far as optoelectronic and electronic devices, with special attention to light emitting sources at telecom wavelengths.
The group at the moment comprises three PhD students and two postdoctoral fellows.
The Head of Group is Emanuele Pelucchi.
