Professor Rosei joined INRS-ÉMT in May 2002 to develop a research
program in nanostructured materials. His present activities focus on the
• The growth of self–organized semiconductor nanostructures,
and their potential application to nanoelectronics and optoelectronics;
• The adsorption properties of organic molecules at metal and semiconductor
surfaces, for prospective use in molecular electronic devices;
• The properties of nanostructured biocompatible materials, for
use in novel implantable devices.
His expertise includes the growth of semiconductor thin films and nanostructures,
the self–assembly of organic molecules and the processing and characterization
of materials at the nanometer length scale.
