FBK – CMM is a research center of reference, in Italy and internationally, for the development of novel concepts in sensors and devices for Big Science and for industrial and technical applications. The ever-increasing demand for sensors and devices with improved performance driven by frontier research and experiments on one side and by the advanced technology challenges faced by innovative industries on another side are stimulating the fundamental scientific progresses of the Center. The unique system made of our various competences, excellent skills and advanced infrastructure to cover activities from silicon technologies to photonics, materials and bio-physics gives us the ability to achieve scientific developments of absolute international value. Our capability to work in partnership with many actors involved in Big Science, industry and education gives us the cultural flexibility for making our results available to manufacturing and social fruition in a reduced time.
