Fabio Beltram and his group carry out research work in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology with a broad spectrum of topics. His results appeared in about four hundred publications on international journals and patents.
He has always worked on the physics and device applications of semiconductor and hybrid superconductor‐semiconductor nanostructures. Increasingly, in the last years, Fabio Beltram has carried out research activity in the field of molecular biophysics in order to apply his expertise in nanotechnology and in the engineering of nanostructures to significant issues in nanobiotechnology and biomedicine.
Topics presently investigated include: electron transport in semiconductor nanostructures with an emphasis on many‐body effects, THz laser sources, ballistic transport in nano‐ and hybrid superconductor‐semiconductor structures. In the context of molecular biophysics main lines include the design and exploitation of molecular‐medicine vectors, biosensors, and novel mutants of green fluorescent proteins for single‐molecule proteomics in live cells.
