IOM research focuses on the study and development of advanced materials, nanostructures, biosystems, sensors and devices with control at the micro- and nano-scale. We address the fundamental physical and chemical processes that govern the functionalities of these systems as well as their implementation into emerging technological applications

A unique integrated approach that combines theory and simulation, growth and synthesis, advanced characterization and nanofabrication allows to gain fundamental knowledge in nanoscience and nanotechnologies, to design advanced materials and biosystems, and to conceive their integration into new technologies.

IOM research addresses four Mission Areas that meet the Global Challenges and European Industrial Competitiveness pillars of Horizon Europe as well as the national key areas for research and innovation, with particular reference to Climate, Energy and Mobility; Quantum Technologies; Health and nanomedicine; Digital Industry and Nanoelectronics.
