The PRISM Lab (Photonics – Research – Innovation – Sensors and Materials) of CNR-INO has a long experience in the field of conductometric / optical gas sensors and in the field of functional optical materials. PRISM Lab also has extensive expertise in agrifood and healthcare applications of the electronic nose. The research activities that characterize SPHERA are the growth of thin films and nanostructures of oxides and metals, vibrational spectroscopy, non-linear optics and computational design for applications in optical / electrical sensors and nanoantennas / metasurfaces.
The CNR-INO is the only CNR research group in Brescia (located ? CSMT) and has its roots in a strong collaboration with the nearby University of Brescia, Information Engineering Department (DII).
