  • Graphene research is fading away


    After the discover of graphene in 2014 by Geim and Novoselov that got the Nobel price in 2010, scientists have worked hard to investigate all possible properties and possible uses of this material. At the beginning graphene was proposed as possible candidate to substitute silicon in electronics, due its extreme high conductivity. However differently from […]



  • Computer Simulations for condensed phase systems: from correlated electrons to novel materials


        Dear Friends and Colleagues, in the occasion of Giovanni Bachelet’s 60th birthday, you are warmly invited to the workshop  “Computer Simulations for condensed phase systems: from correlated electrons to novel materials” to be held at the CNR Headquarters in Rome, on May 4-6, 2015. The talks, on invitation only, will be given by […]



  • CNRS cuts research positions by more than one-fourth in the last 5 years


    CNRS (National Scientific Research Center) is the largest research center in France. It employes about 11.000 researchers and its domain of activity ranges from physics to sociology, from chemistry to electronics and so on. Every year researchers are recruited by means of a national open competitive exam. The selection is composed of two parts a […]
