Nanoscience Laboratory Kick Off Meeting

The meeting aims at making the point of the research activities to pave the way to the future research programs of the Nanoscience Laboratory. This year we welcome two long seminars on topics related to metamaterials and to photovoltaics. In addition, four research teams, formed by the scientists of the lab, will address the audience with the state of the art of their research in nanoscience, biology and photonics.
