Piemonte Quantum Enabling Technology

PiQuET is an applied research infrastructure for the implementation of micro- and nanotechnology processes for the realisation and prototyping of miniaturised and integrated devices, microsensors, MEMS & NEMS, nanostructures, quantum devices and for the synthesis of nanostructured materials and functional materials for polymer 3D printing. PiQuET stands as an infrastructural reference for micro and nanotechnologies and quantum technologies in Piedmont for both advanced research and industrial innovation.

Infrastructure co-managed by the National Institute of Metrological Research (coordinator), Politecnico di Torino and University of Turin
