Multispectral and THz


A new paper has been published on the Journal of Infrared Millimeter and Terahertz Waves, Springer.

From 12 September to 15 September, in Lausanne, the 2016 ESSCIRC-ESSDERC will be held.

We welcome you in joining us at this conference! We will present a paper at the "Sensors and MEMS Interfaces" session on Wednesday:

Muhammad Ali, Matteo Perenzoni, David Stoppa, "A High-Gain, Low-Noise Switched Capacitor Readout for FET-Based THz Detectors"

Do you want to have a great opportunity for your future career?

Would you like to work in a stimulating and young environment?

Have you ever desired to put your hands on state-of-the-art tools and instruments?

We are looking right now for highly motivated and ambitious students who want to pursue their PhD in the field of microelectronics and sensors here in the IRIS research unit of FBK. We currently have several joint PhD positions with scolarship with three affiliated universities:

Two letter papers have recently been published by the IRIS group.

A paper on a very small and efficient TDC, suitable for arrayed applications, has been published in Electronics Letters:

M. Perenzoni, H. Xu, D. Stoppa, 'Small area 0.3 pJ/conv, 45 ps time-to-digital converter for arrays of silicon photomultiplier interfaces in 150 nm CMOS', Electronics Letters, 2015

while the following letter is the result of a fruitful cooperation with CNR-NEST in Pisa:

The Researchers' Night 2015, held on the 25th of September, was a great success!

We really would like to thank the hundreds of you who visited our booth and got excited together with us about science! It has been really a wonderful experience also for us in getting in touch with all of you.

Stay tuned as we won't miss the chance to grab your attention even more at the next event!

A paper from IRIS group will be presented at the 2014 International Infrared Mm-waves and TeraHertz Conference:

M. Perenzoni, "Measurement of Spatial Response of CMOS Antenna-Coupled FET Detector at 325GHz"

There are 2 PhD positions available in the Integrated Radiation and Image Sensor research unit in FBK, on the following two subjects:

  • "Terahertz image sensors in CMOS technologies" - ref: M. Perenzoni
  • "Ultra-low power vision systems for environmental applications" - ref: M. Gottardi

The candidates should have skills in electronics and in particular in integrated circuits design and electronics systems, and she/he should have the capability to tackle the problem from the idea to its design and practical realization.

Physics and Applications of Terahertz Radiation (Perenzoni, Matteo, Paul, Douglas J.)

Main features of the book:

We would like to thank all the contributors and participants to the 2013 Researchers' Night, which has been a wonderful and successful event!

A special thank to all the people who visited our booth inside the Muse museum, playing with our photons and leaving their thermal fingerprint... hope to see you next time with new and even more exciting stuff to show!

Vorremmo ringraziare tutti quanti hanno contribuito e partecipato alla Notte dei Ricercatori 2013, che e' stato un bellissimo evento di successo!


The Graphene Flagship is tasked with bringing together academic and industrial researchers to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in the space of 10 years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities.
