The Research Unit of Naples has a considerable set of scientific equipment covering the following areas: advanced thin films deposition, micro- and nano-patterning, structural/morphological and electronic transport characterization down to ultra-low temperatures in the presence of high magnetic fields or external radiation, advanced optical characterization and spectroscopy in the wavelength range 200 - 1500 nm also time resolved, low noise electronic characterization of devices, sensors and detectors, high/performance calculus.
Part of the equipment is located in the C.N.R. in Pozzuoli CNR Area 3, while some equipment is part of a larger pool belonging to the Department of Physics of the University Federico II and is located in shared laboratories. Recently advanced cryogenic equipments have been set up in collaboration with the Seconda Università di Napoli (SUN), and located in the laboratories of CNR SPIN Napoli.
Some relevant equipments are:
- MODA system - Modular facility for oxide deposition and in-situ analysis of epitaxial thin films;
- Configurable dilution refrigerator TRITON 400 operating at temperatures below 10 mK combined with low noise signal lines and a rapid sample exchange mechanism;
- Quanta-600 FEI Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) with field emission (FEG) combined with a Raith Electron Beam nano-Litography (EBL) system;
- Ultrafast optical pump-probe system based on a Ti - Sapphire laser amplifier delivering sub-100-fs laser pulses at a repetition rate of 1 kHz and with a working spectral bandwidth ranging between 500 and 1500 nm.
