The research topics deal with matter physics and, in particular, the development of innovative devices including chemical sensors, biosensors, olfaction systems, field effect emitters, light emitting devices and many others. Metal oxide semiconductors quasi 1D or nanostructured are used successfully for these devices. The ability to control the morphology, crystalline and functional properties of the prepared material may be achieved thanks to the fundamental and functional characterization techniques available. The intended applications are in the fields of environment, security, human health and food industries. Additional topics deal with nuclear physics, in particular general properties of nuclear forces, particle detectors, data acquisition systems, statistical methods of experimental data analysis, simulation of physical processes and performances of experimental setups, and long-term environmental and sanitary effects of radiation.
