Foundation: 2002

Mission: Scientific interests of IPCF are mainly devoted to condensed matter science, particularly to the thermodynamics of the collective processes resulting in material behaviors and properties observed on mesoscale. It is a largely inter-disciplinary activity featured by a strong international competitiveness which covers many relevant topics of Physics, Chemistry and Material Engeneering. Research moves from merely curiosity driven goals, e.g. a widespread understanding of the mechanisms driving any self-aggregation or self-organization phenomenon responsible for the macroscopic properties of complex systems, eventually addressing the design and characterization of materials tailored for specific aggregation and technology transfer in strategic sectors like sensors, environment, health, areo-space, with relevant technological repercussions: development of nana-structures and organic semi-conductors for electronics and photovoltaic applications, fiber guide sensors (SERS, TERS, TERS imaging, etc.), developments of materials with predetermined (mechanical, thermal, optical, magnetic, electric) properties. Furthermore, IPCF is involved in the design and construction of beam lines at neutron Large Scale facilities, including the European Spallation Source and the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject areas/categories

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal.
