Overview of the Research

The main research focus of our group is related to the electronic sensing/actuation issue. Sensors and actuators are highly multi-disciplinary subjects involving the study and exploitation of phenomena that occur at the interface between the physical systems and electronic interface. At the same time, electronic sensing process cannot be conceived without a general overview of the general acquisition architecture. For this reason, the sensing process is explored concurrently on several layers: physical, electronic, data processing.

 

Our research is primarily focused in exploring both novel applications and the physical limits of the sensing process. Since electric charge is the primary variable of electronic signals, one of our key expertise is in ultra-low charge detection techniques implemented in both integrated and discrete electronics.
