Lead Researcher

Luciano Colazzo

Dr. Luciano Colazzo is a researcher at the IBS Center for Quantum Nanoscience, engaged in the field of nanotechnology and quantum chemistry. He was awarded an independent research grant, the IBS Young Scientist Fellowship and as of late 2021, he is the lead researcher for the “On-Surface Quantum Chemistry” project. His research focuses on the on-surface synthesis of molecular qubit arrays, by enforcing a multidisciplinary approach that encompasses quantum mechanics, molecular chemistry, and surface sciences.
"We are gaining the knowledge; science is giving us that.
Now we need wisdom as well."
