The Laboratory of Physics of Nanostructures (LPN) carries out research on the science and technology of low-dimensional semiconductors (semiconductor quantum wells, wires and dots) and photonic nanostructures (micro- and nano-cavities, photonic crystals).

Activities range from growth of ordered nanostructures to studies of low-dimensional excitons all the way to development and commercialization of long-wavelength vertical cavity surface emitting lasers.
