EXPOSED AT THE “ALTAR OF THE NATION” IN ROME, THE ITALIAN LASER THAT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE WORLD MEASURED THE OZONE LAYER ABOVE ANTARCTICA
Technology which is 100% made in Italy at the service of the international scientific community, which since 1986 monitors the health of Antarctica. It is the Quanta System laser, the first in the world to be installed in the Earth’s coldest continent in order to measure the ozone layer, exposed from 6 October to 2 November 2015 in Rome at the Vittoriano in an exhibition that celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Italian South Pole expeditions. The inauguration took place at the presence of the Minister and the executive staff of the Ministry of Education.
The Italian National Technology Platform (NTP) of Photonics, CORIFI (COordinamento Ricerca e Innovazione Fotonica Italia) has been founded on April 2014 as a legal entity linked to AEIT, to represent the whole Italian photonics community. The platform has now 82 members from academy, research organizations and industries. In particular about 20% of the platform’s members are representatives of the main Italian photonics large industries and SMEs. CORIFI is composed of the executive board and 7 working groups, mirror of Photonics21 working groups, which focus on application-oriented as well as cross-disciplinary photonics fields. The AEIT-CORIFI executive board is constituted by the President, two academic Vice-Presidents and two industrial Vice Presidents and the chairs of the working groups elected by the platform members. The main national associations operating in photonics (i.e. SIOF, IEEE Photonics Society) as well as the main photonics regional clusters (i.e. OPTOTOSCANA) are represented in the board of the stakeholders.
The main objective of AEIT-CORIFI is to overcome the fragmentation of national research and innovation (R&I) activities and to promote the Italian research and innovation (R&I) excellence in photonics with the national, regional and EU institutions. On May 2015 AEIT-CORIFI has presented its first research and innovation strategic agenda to representatives of the Ministry of Economic Development (MISE), of the Ministry for Education, Research and Innovation (MIUR) and of CONFINDUSTRIA. The agenda wants to serve as reference point for national and regional authorities involved in the definition of research and innovation priorities and their smart specialization strategy.
Photonics Cluster and Society OPTOSCANA is the innovation pole of Tuscany for photonics and space. http://optoscana.net/en
SIOF The Society of Optics and Photonics (SIOF) is the Italian branch of the European Optical Society. SIOF was established in 1991 to promote research and development in the field of optics and photonics and to coordinate such activities throughout the country. One of its tasks is therefore the dissemination of knowledge related to these disciplines. http://siof-ottica.it
IEEE Photonics Society Italy Chapter The IEEE Photonics Society Italy Chapter is the Italian branch of the IEEE Photonics Society. The chapter was founded in 1997, with the former name of LEOS Italian Chapter, to promote research and development in photonics. The chapter activity includes: national and international lecturers; workshops and conferences; awards and prizes. In particular, each year, the chapter recognizes distinguished work by young Ph.D. doctors in the field of photonics (laser, electro-optical devices, optical fibers, electro-optical techniques, quantum electronics and all those applications where lightwave technologies are the key) through an award for the “Best Doctoral Thesis” discussed in an Italian university. http://www.ieee-photonics.it/

AEIT-CORIFI: ELezione della Presidenza e del Consiglio Direttivo
Il giorno 7 maggio 2015 si è tenuta a Torino, in occasione del Convegno Fotonica 2015, l’Assemblea per il rinnovo delle cariche della Presidenza e del Consiglio Direttivo di CoRiFi COORDINAMENTO RICERCA INNOVAZIONE FOTONICA ITALIA dell’AEIT per il triennio 2015
PLASMONICA: Building Human Potential in Nano-optics
More than 100 young investigators of all nationalities working in Italy and young Italians working abroad have gathered in Milan in 2013 and in Rome in 2014 to discuss the present and the future of the multi-disciplinary research field of Plasmonics. It turned out that more direct communication provides more ideas, a fair competition and the build-up of excellent personal relations.
The economy crisis brought to a significant decrease of Italian public spending for research. Instead of just complaining and/or quitting their research jobs, young researchers with activities in the fields of Plasmonics and Nano-optics have decided to meet up and talk to each other in a series of dedicated workshops.
Plasmonics is the interdisciplinary field of research located between physics, chemistry, biology and engineering that exploits the natural oscillations of the electron plasma, present in all metals and semiconductors, to obtain performance improvements of photonic devices at infrared and visible light frequencies. It can also be considered a sub-field of metal/semiconductor nanotechnology were light plays the role of the external driving force. The workshop topics based on technology advances were: Plasmon-enhanced Nanospectroscopy and Nanoimaging, Optical Antennae and Metamaterials, Integrated and Hybrid Devices (sensors, waveguides, and photovoltaics), Plasmonics for Biology and Medicine. Three topics with more futuristic flavor were also discussed: Unconventional Plasmonic Materials and Frequency Ranges, Quantum Plasmonics and Magneto-Plasmonics.
EuroPho21 – Towards a cohesive strategy for Photonics in Europe
From January 2015 onwards, AEIT-CORIFI will take part in an European project funded in Horizon 2020 Currently Europe is able to keep its world market share in photonics at 18 percent, whereas other regions traditionally strong in photonics, like the US and Japan, have already lost shares to China, South Korea, or Taiwan. However, the global shift of the photonics market share to Asia is becoming an increasing threat to the European photonics industry . To stay competitive, the European photonics community needs to further join forces to develop and implement a common strategy for Europe. Europe must strengthen its industrial leadership by promoting wide-scale cooperation and better integration across the whole research and innovation value chain. The full photonics value chain does not yet exist in many EU Member States, and this presents a significant barrier to expansion of the photonics industry. The Photonics Public Private Partnership (PPP) established in Horizon 2020 is the mechanism for achieving these goals. The time is now right to take the next step and combine resources at all levels – European, national, and regional – adopting one cohesive strategy to significantly strengthen the sector and move toward new advanced photonic technologies. The European photonics community can then address the grand challenges facing European society and maximize the economic benefits derived from the next generation of photonics products.
Consequently, at the strategic level, EuroPho21 project, coordinated by VDI and with the participation of othe 12 National Technology Platform (including AEIT-CORIFI) shares the strategic objectives of the Photonics PPP: •to foster photonics manufacturing, jobs, and wealth creation in Europe through a long-term investment commitment by industry and by the European Commission; •to accelerate Europe’s innovation process and time to market by addressing the full innovation and value chain in a number of market sectors in which the European photonics industry is particularly strong (e.g., lighting, medical photonics, and optical components & systems); •to mobilize, pool, and leverage public and private resources to provide successful solutions for some of the major societal challenges facing Europe, particularly in healthcare & well-being, and in energy efficiency.

Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2014 for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for 2014 to Stefan W. Hell (Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Göttingen, and German Cancer Research Center, Heidelberg, Germany), Eric Betzig (Janelia Research Campus, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Ashburn, VA, USA) and William E. Moerner (Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA) for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy. In 1873, the microscopist Ernst Abbe stipulated a physical limit for the maximum resolution of traditional optical microscopy: it could never become better than 0.2 micrometres. The three Nobel Laureates in Chemistry 2014 are awarded the Nobel Prize for having bypassed this limit. Due to their achievements the optical microscope can now peer into the nanoworld.
