Università degli studi dell’Insubria
Università degli studi dell'Insubria The University of Insubria (IN) participates in SkyCoat with the Department of Science and High Technologies. The Department of Science and High Technologies at IN has a remarkable experience in Optics due to the research activity carried out by 5 different groups, which work in this field. The research group coordinated by Prof. Di Trapani has expertise in the fields of Nonlinear Optics, Laser Optics, Optical Design, Microfabrication and Colour science of optical materials (www.optics-di-trapani.it). The facilities at Insubria consist of two fully equipped laboratories and one under construction. Moreover the group can benefit from the collaboration with and assistance of staff working in neighboring groups. The group is the creator of the Light in Light exhibition (see www.diluceinluce.eu), which is dedicated to the indoors study and reconstruction of optical atmospheric phenomena, such as rainbows, sunsets and blue skies. This exhibition has acted as a spark for the invention and development of the SkyCoat technology.
Role in SkyCoat
In SkyCoat IN will act as project coordinator and will be responsible for project management. IN will also be involved in all workpackages where optical-material physical modeling (from the macro to the nano scale), optical material, component and device characterization, data analysis and numerical simulations are needed.
