IFN Lecco


The IFN-CNR 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.
