     Focus


         The research activities concern the investigation
         of new soft materials and devices of interest for
         optical information processing , optical data storage,
         biophotonics
Areas of investigation

Materials investigated include polymers, liquid
crystals, composites and self-assembled structures
with organic compounds.

Phenomena investigated include nonlinear optical
properties, light induced memory effects,
