The Roma Tre University (ROM3) is a public university where all fields of knowledge are represented, located in the center of Rome. It was established in 1992 and has forty thousand students enrolled.
There are 12 Departments that offer courses of Degree/Master's Degree, Educational Courses, Doctoral research , doctoral schools and graduate schools.
The academic staff is about 1000 professors and researchers, and 500 administrative employees. Today it boasts twelve large departments, covering several disciplinary areas, with high level research centers in the sectors of physics, Life Science, computer science, engineering, mathematics, among others.
ROM3 will participate to the FLASH with the The Laboratory of Mesoscopic Physics and Nanostructures of the Department of Sciences.
The Department of Science employs a total of about 200 Scientists, half of them are permanent staff. They are active in the fields of Chemistry, Soft and Condensed Matter Physics, Nanoscience, Life and Earth Sciences.
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology represent a major field of fundamental investigation of the Department, from ultrafast quantum optics, integrated quantum photonics, opto-electronic devices, Biosensors, Surface Physics, electrical and optical properties of innovative materials. The research activity is carried out in the laboratories of the Department and through the access to advanced Synchrotron-based characterization technique at Elettra- Trieste, Bessy-Berlin, ESRF-Grenoble, Free-electron-Laser Facility FELBE at Helmotz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and Neutron Sources ISIS (UK). Shared technical services (mechanical workshop, software development) and dedicated administration personnel are available to all groups.
The Laboratory of Mesoscopic Physics and Nanostructures (LMP&N), directed by Prof. Monica De Seta, has an internationally recognized expertise in the Chemical Vapor Deposition crystal growth and in the investigation of quantum transport and optical properties of low dimensional material systems. The research activity is focused mainly in the deposition and characterization of Group IV semiconductor heterostructures such as Si, Ge, SiGe, SiGeSn on Si substrates. These structures are realized to obtain confinement conditions and engineering of the electronic states to be exploited in innovative optoelectronic devices.

Milano Bicocca; LNESS-Politecnico Milano; Scuola Normale Superiore (Pi); Università Pisa; Leibniz Institut Innovation for High Performance Microelectronics-(IHP)(Ger); Paul Drude Institut (Ger); Helmotz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (Ger); Institute d'Electronique Fondamentale Universitè Paris-Sud (Fra); Forschungszentrum Juelich (Ger).
Role in FLASH
Roma Tre will coordinate the project and lead WP1 and WP3;
In particular the unit will be in charge of:
Material Growth for WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5
FTIR and pump and probe THz spectroscopy ( WP3)
Theoretical support to pump&probe experiment to assess achievable material gain and evaluate the material parameters which control the relevant electron scattering channels.
