The scientific roots of DEI research activities in Electronics date back to 1957 when Emilio Gatti was appointed first Italian Chair of Electronics. Following his imprinting, EE research at DEI has been always carried out by closely intermixing theoretical analysis and experiments. Nowadays, EE labs cover 1,400 sq.m. floor room and are well equipped with state of the art measurement set-ups for electrical characterization of nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices, sensors, MEM’s, integrated circuits. An internal facility for design and fabrication of application boards and systems is also available.
Research activities are organized into three major research lines: Circuits and Systems Theory and Applications, developing advanced methodologies for accurate circuit simulations, Sensors and Instrumentation, targeting the development of detectors, MEMs and their applications, Microelectronics and Emerging Technologies, including activities on both advanced IC design and research on emerging devices such as nanoscale memories and organic semiconductor devices for post-CMOS.
The 34 academic staff people, supported by 42 PhD’s and post-docs, deliver about seventy courses on various subjects of EE Engineering at undergraduate and graduate level.
