Projects and Grants


GO FAST project NMP-FP7 Cooperative project
GOverning ultraFAST the conductivity of correlated materials.
The project will develop efficient schemes to study electronic, optical and structural properties of correlated materials driven out of equilibrium, in view of achieving an ultrafast optical control of their electronic properties.

MODPHYSFRICT picture

MODPHYSFRICT ERC Advanced-FP7
Friction plays a central role in diverse systems and phenomena that span vast ranges of scales, from the nanometer contacts inherent in micro- and nanomachines and biological molecular motors, to the geophysical scales characteristic for earthquakes. This project aims at clarifying many key aspects of the friction dynamics, which are still poorly understood despite the fundamental importance and and the growing efforts


SUPERBAD ERC Starting-FP7
SUPERconductivity as a cure for BAD metallic behaviour
The aim of the project is revive the dream of a unique theoretical framework for cuprates, iron-based superconductors and fullerides. Superconductivity in all these materials is shown to appear to "heal" a bad metallic state determined by strong correlation effects.
