The Center for Nano Science and Technology (CNST) is one node of the network established by the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia with Italian academies in order to foster synergy in the national research. The mission of the center is "innovation", therefore the goal of the CNST scientific team is to transfer new basic knowledge into new applications.

CNST has a focus on material science, and it is able to conduct the complete production line, from conceiving and realizing a new material to its application in devices (solar cells, transistor and LEDs), through a comprehensive characterization. The areas of competence are Material Chemistry, Molecular Electronics, Printed Electronics, Nanotechnology Fabrication and Optical-Photophysical-Morphological and Theoretical Characterization.

Workshop - Trends in Organic Photophysics | 7-9 November 2016

This workshop deals with new directions in photophysics and photonics, covering a broad range of materials and applications. Photoexcitation dynamics is explored in organic semiconductors, hybrid materials and low dimensional materials. Speakers from the several European academies and research institute gathers at the Center for Nano Science and Technology of the Italian institute of technology for a one and half day of talks and discussion, in a friendly and informal format. Focus will be on the open questions and the opportunity in the field, towards new applications for life enhancement.
