Research Centre for Nanotechnology applied to Engineering of Sapienza University of Rome - CNIS

(Centro per le Nanotecnologie applicate all’Ingegneria di Sapienza Università di Roma)

CNIS has been constituted in 2006, and now involves over 90 professors and researchers, coming from different Departments of the Faculties of Engineering, Sciences and Medicine. The vision and goal of CNIS is to embrace and support a multidisciplinary user base of researchers of Sapienza and co-workers of other universities or private laboratories. CNIS activities are now developed in the new (2012) Sapienza Nanotechnology & Nano-science Laboratory (SNN Lab), which is the core-facility at Sapienza devoted to nanoscience and nanotech multidisciplinary applications in material science, life sciences, engineering and solid state physics. It gathers state-of-art instrumentation for nanotechnology together with an experienced staff that will perform the structural and functional characterization of all the material, devices and systems in the framework of the foreseen project activities.

In particular, a wide set of microscopy and nanoscopy techniques is available. The facility also offers our users a variety of sample preparation equipment, a light microscopy lab with image analysis, an X-ray lab, and a materials testing lab.

The SNN-Lab is finalized to:

• Integrate the multidisciplinary competencies available at Sapienza University in the fields of nanotechnology and nanoscience, with the aim of creating synergies among research groups operating in different areas of science, engineering, medicine.

• Constitute a research infrastructure at Sapienza as support to the design, realization and characterization of nanostructures and innovative micro/nano-devices for different fields of applications.

• Provide instrumentation and services to high quality research in the field of: micro/nano-fabrication, micro/nano-manipulation, advanced characterization (functional and structural microscopy) of the chemical-physical properties of micro/nanostructured materials, engineerization of the designed micro/nanostructured devices and systems, nanomedicine and genomics.

• Create a reference structure for territory and enterprise, responding to the research and technological development needs of the research programs at regional, national and international levels.

• The SNN-Lab has been realized also thank to financing from Lazio Region aimed at promoting innovation and technological transfer. The Lab is located on an area of 400 mq, at Sapienza University main campus.
