The EOLAB was established in 1996 within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of University of Cagliari with the aim of creating and developing strong skills in the field of both analog and digital microelectronics for the students of the Electronic Engineering program of study. Since then, more than 150 students per year have attended the courses held by the Lab staff and more than 30% of the students who graduated in Electronic Engineering have completed their thesis work in our Lab.
University of Cagliari is the only technical university in Sardinia, the most beautiful (at least in our opinion) and one of the largest islands of Mediterranean sea. Sardinia is worldwide famous for its beaches, sea and tourist resorts but, recently, it has known an impressive growth of IT related companies which have turned it into one of the main italian (and european) technological sites.
Innovative Devices & Materials Group (inside EOLAB) was born with the aim of opening new scenarios in the field of electronic devices, creating strong skills in the field of future and emerging technologies in Electronics. We strongly believe that it is extremely important to: (1) develop advanced research projects to create skills, competencies, know-how and a rich technical background and to promote technological transfer from the university to the industrial world and (2) improve the quality of students' education and match their skills to present and future industrial and research requirements.
We strongly encourage the mobility of our students and we are conscious of the importance of working on practical problems as well as of applying the advanced theoretical concepts learnt in the courses to working devices with innovative properties. We like the idea of going from a concept to a final working device.
New materials for new electronic devices, mainly organics and inorganic heterostructure systems, are the primary field of our research. We have facilities for realizing devices from concept to final prototype. We have also a variety of instruments and techniques suitable for characterizing devices, from the structural and from the electronic point of view. These two aspects are strongly correlated in modern device structures!
