Our main scientific interests

Carbon nanotube Sensors

We use the exceptional sensing capabilities of carbon nanotube mechanical oscillators to probe their environment


We are interested in the fundamental aspects of mechanics at the nanoscale, and in particular the nanomechanics of carbon nanotubes


We explore the coupling between light and mechanical motion

Our team is always looking for new talents to join the adventure
