Produrre elettricità dalle dispersioni termiche. Il Laboratorio NEST realizza il primo dispositivo in grado di farlo in maniera controllata

Si apre la possibilità di creare una nuova generazione di sistemi termoelettrici “intelligenti” per generare elettricità pulita. Il lavoro, frutto della ricerca presso il NEST della Scuola Normale a Pisa, ha ottenuto la copertina della rivista Advanced Functional...

Low-dimensional gold

Gold is a scarse element on the earth’s crust and is difficult to extract. It is also resistant to corrosion and it does not oxidize, so it can preserve its properties with time. It is also heavy, malleable and easy to mould. It therefore became the reference material...

HBN-Encapsulated, Graphene-based, Room-temperature Terahertz Receivers, with High Speed and Low Noise

Uncooled terahertz photodetectors (PDs) showing fast (ps) response and high sensitivity (noise equivalent power (NEP) < nW/Hz1/2) over a broad (0.5–10 THz) frequency range are needed for applications in high-resolution spectroscopy (relative accuracy ∼10–11),...

Production of 3D Tumor Models of Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas for Nanotheranostics Assessment

The integration into the preclinical research workflow of 3D neoplasm models is particularly appealing to promote the success of therapeutics in clinical trials while reducing the number of in vivo models. On this regard, we have standardized a protocol for the...

NEST, the National Enterprise for nanoScience and nanoTechnology, is an interdisciplinary research and training centre where physicists, chemists and biologists investigate scientific issues at the nanoscale. This knowledge is exploited to develop innovative nanobiotechnological tools, nanoelectronic and photonic devices and architectures.

The NEST initiative comprises four distinct institutions: Scuola Normale Superiore, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. Although each institution has its own staff and administration (Laboratorio NEST of SNS, Center for Nanotechnology Innovation of IIT, the Istituto Nanoscienze of CNR, and Nanoplant of SSSA) facilities and activities are closely coordinated and scientists team up for specific scientific objectives regardless of their affiliation.

This concentration of efforts and flexibility allows NEST scientist to address a rather broad range of research activities that span from semiconductor/superconductor nanostructure design, growth and experimental investigation to single-molecule studies in live cells and tissues. Despite this broad scope, NEST scientists adopt a unified approach thanks to the close cultural integration of its multidisciplinary teams which is characteristic of nanoscience.

This web page provides a presentation of the main research activities and the technical sections of recent NEST Activity Reports.
