To Giorgio Parisi the Wolf Prize for Physics 2021
Feb 10, 2021. Theoretical physicist Giorgio Parisi, current president of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei, research associate of CNR - Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche and INFN - Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare and professor at Sapienza University of Rome, has been awarded the prestigious Wolf Prize for Physics 2021 "for his pioneering discoveries in quantum field theory, statistical mechanics and complex systems". Giorgio Parisi has been collaborating for many years with CNR: he is associated with CNR - Institute of Nanotechnology and was the founder in early 2000, of the center "Statistical Mechanics and Complexity" of the Institute of Physics of Matter (INFM).

Workshop EDGE-Tech ONLINE
The EDGE-Tech online workshop - o be held on the 26 and 27 of October 2020 - will focus on new, emerging and disruptive technologies with applications at the Point-Of-Care.

International speakers will share their experience in the fields of sensors, chemistry and microfluidics as well as technological transfer and project management strategies. In the frame of EU SMILE-Attract project, the event is organized by CNR NANOTEC and STMicroelectronics and a website accessible for registered people will host the event. Talks will be recorded on next 26th and 27th of October at Nanotec Seminar room (Ground floor, building G, CNR NANOTEC Lecce). A small audience will be allowed to participate in presence according to COVID-19 limitations. As soon as seminars will be registered, they will appear on the web platform. The same platform will also host the Poster session. Registration to the workshop is free at the following direct link.

A successful kick off meeting of newly launched FETOPEN project PHEMTRONICS
Active Optical Phase-Change Plasmonic Transdimensional Systems Enabling Femtojoule and Femtosecond Extreme Broadband Reconfiguarble Devices

The 26th June marked the successful kick-off meeting of the European Commission H2020 FETOPEN project PHEMTRONICS (grant agreement No 899598), coordinated by the Institute of Nanotechnology of the Italian National Council of Research that engages 8 partners from Germany, Ireland, Austria, Spain, Romania, France.
H2020 FETOPEN PHEMTRONICS heralds a new era in the fields of mobile communications, optical computing, ultrafast athermal switching for neuromorphic computation, tuneable nanopixel displays, covering the whole value chain, from a novel class of plasmonic phase-change materials, to fabrication, design, modelling tools and integration to new device architectures.
Within this context, PHEMTRONICS aims at delivering innovative ultrafast phase-change switches, dynamically reconfigurable antennas and adaptive multiple-band detectors surpassing the current paradigms of speed, energy and frequencies.

Electrically controlled waveguide polariton laser
The exciton-polaritons are mixed light-matter particles emerging in semiconductor microcavities. Their unique properties of coherence and capability of interact, make them a suitable platform for the development of integrated opto-electronic devices. In this work we demonstrate the design and implementation of an electrically controlled polariton laser of high-speed propagating particles in a GaAs/AlGaAs waveguide. The effect reported in this work could pave the way for the construction of tunable, micrometer-sized coherent sources of polaritons with different properties in a single wafer of slab waveguide.
