The Institute for Microelectronics and Microsystems (IMM) of the National Council of Research (CNR) has been founded to create a unique scientific structure capable of competing at international level in the strategic fields of microelectronics, sensors and microsystems. In particular, the activities carried out in Naples are mainly devoted to micro and nano-photonic technologies for bio-medicine, ICT, aerospace and environment.
The Unit of Naples collaborates with important international research laboratories, such as LETI, DIMES, UCLA, Boston University, Lawrence National Berkeley Labs, and with main companies (Alenia Aeronautica, Carlo Gavazzi Space, STMicroelectronics, Selex SI, DEMA, etc.) and SME.
The research activities of the Unit are carried out by a young staff of researchers with expertise on physics, chemistry, and electronic engineering, covering the path from the understanding of basic phenomena to the design and realization of innovative devices. The staff is completed by 6 technicians and 3 administrative.
