La Presidente del CNR, Maria Chiara Carrozza, è intervenuta alla cerimonia inaugurale del 109° Congresso Nazionale Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF), svolto presso l’Università di Salerno. In tale occasione, la Presidente ha incontrato il Direttore dell’Istituto SPIN ed i ricercatori della sede Secondaria di Salerno.
News & Events
The scientific journal Nano Letters chooses for its September cover a research by the CNR SPIN Institute published in the article Nano Lett. 2023, 23, 17, 7782–7789.
As for the 1st Call , the evaluation process of 2nd Call for the 2022 “Research Project of National Interest (PRIN)”, being directly related to the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR), recognized the capability of the SPIN researchers to present innovative proposals. Indeed, seven projects having a SPIN researcher as Principal Investigator were approved, while, in other two funded proposals, SPIN researchers are involved in a CNR UNIT (with a leading role in one case).
The 109° Congress of the Italian Physical Society, this year, has been organized by the Physics Department of the University of Salerno (Prof. Salvatore De Pasquale, president of the Organizing Committee) and CNR-SPIN Salerno (Dr. Nadia Martucciello, vice-president). The event will take place at the Fisciano Campus from 11th to 15th September 2023. The Congress, which will gather about 800 Italian physicists for the whole week, will represent the meeting point of various cultural and scientific facets of contemporary physics. The Congress, each day, has various plenary general sessions and seven parallel ones, to guarantee an ample scenery of the Italian research in physics and a common background for the attending researchers.
In occasione del 109° Congresso Nazionale SIF proseguirà presso il Dipartimento di Fisica dell’Università di Salerno, con il supporto dell’Istituto CNR SPIN, la mostra "Dire l'indicibile - L'entanglement quantistico", percorso attraverso i concetti chiave della Meccanica Quantistica fino all'entanglement.
On Wednesday, September 6th, as part of the 16th European Conference on Applied Superconductivity "EUCAS", a round table titled "We have a dream: room-temperature superconductivity" and open to journalists and media operators will be held in Bologna (Palazzo della Cultura e dei Congressi, Sala Europa Auditorium, 6.30 pm - 7.15 pm, live stream on https://youtube.com/live/wV0t76cc6ts).
CNR-SPIN and CNR-IMEM (chairmen: Dr. Antonio Vecchione and Dr. Andrea Zappettini) organized the International Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy ICCGE20 that has been held in the San Giovanni Campus, the new pole of the Naples University “Federico II”, from 30 July to 4 August 2023.
Attilio Rigamonti (University of Pavia), Andrey Varlamov (CNR-SPIN) and Jacques Villain (Academy of Sciences of France) are the authors of the new book "The Kaleidoscope of Physics: From Soap Bubbles to Quantum Technologies” just published by World Scientific Publishing.
An international collaboration, with A. Stroppa (CNR-SPIN), K.P. Loh (NUS), K. Leng (PolyU) as corresponding authors, showed that the polar axis in ferroelectric 2D Dion-Jacobson (DJ) phase hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites (HOIPs) can be switched by almost 90° using halide substitution. In DJ phase (4AMP)PbX4 ferroelectric system (4AMP = 4-(Aminomethyl)piperidine, X= I and Br), by substituting the iodide with bromide element in perovskite layer, the obtained [PbBr4]2- compound presented In-Plane (IP) polar axis, which is in contrast to the all previously reported [PbI4]2- counterparts with Out-of-Plane (OOP) polar axis.

During the last weeks, the evaluation process of the proposals presented at the 2022 (1st) Call for the Research Project of National Interest (PRIN) has been finalized. The recently published results revealed a significant performance of the SPIN community.
