Lecco unit is the newest section of the IFN. Founded in 2015 is part of the Politecnico
di Milano campus in Lecco.The research
is mainly oriented to the development of optical systems and integrated
photonic devices for environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics and
molecular biology. In particular the scientific activities are focused on ultrahigh
sensitivity trace gas detection, functional imaging of the human body, evaluation
of fruit quality by noninvasive optical methods and micro-fabrication of
devices for microfluidics using femtosecond laser pulses.
