We study complex molecular systems on the nanoscale. Our research is both fundamental and oriented towards technological applications, including instrumentation development.

We prepare complex molecular architectures by Langmuir-Blodgett and Self-Assembly techniques, and we characterize them by several structural and dynamical experimental methods. The applications are focussed on: nanowriting on photosensitive polymeric multilayers, molecular electronics, depositition of ordered layers of biomolecules for biotechnological and biomedical applications.

We also study and validate non conventional lithographic method, particularly appropriate for soft organic materials, and develop innovative instrumentation for the production of complex molecular architectures structured on the nanoscale. On the fundamental side, we are interested in the dynamics of nanostructured disordered systems, with particular reference to glasses and the glass transition in restricted dimensionality.
