The MISSION of CNR-ISM focuses on both fundamental and applied research in the science of materials and technologies of matter. The activity of the Institute concentrates on design, synthesis and analysis of both well-established and new functional nano-, micro-, macro-scale materials to understand their complex properties and to develop frontier scientific concepts which will enable the development of sustainable technologies for energy, well-being and health, environment and information communication technology. The Institute, founded at the beginning of the 1980s, has a long tradition in material characterization ranging from laboratory based research to large scale facilities such as synchrotrons. The expertise of the institute has been subsequently extended to material synthesis and deposition capabilities as well as prototype fabrication to exploit novel materials at the application level. These investigations take advantage of a thorough theoretical expertise based on multiscale descriptions. In recent years, the global need, reaffirmed by the Paris Agreement, to use the best science to counteract climate changes is directing many of the scientific efforts of ISM towards the study of matter to support the sustainability paradigm. With its researchers and technicians, supported by a solid and efficient administration, CNR-ISM represents a professional research center capable of tackling the new challenges presented by the continuous development in material science and promote a detailed physical and physical-chemical understanding of classical and quantum processes governing material behavior. This expertise allows us to create advanced devices and systems thus promoting fruitful collaborations and technology transfer with companies. CNR-ISM is also the place where a new generation of scientists and technologists, such as master students, PhDs, postdocs can be trained in a dynamic and professional environment with access to hundreds of different facilities for material investigation. In order to further foster the collaboration among researchers, international partners and companies, CNR-ISM developed TEMPISM the Technological Material Platform where all the facilities of the institute are described and the links to people in charge of these facilities are provided initiate interactions.

Dawn Aerospace

Based in the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States, Dawn Aerospace’s mission is to enable the next generation of space users by providing dramatically more scalable and sustainable ways to access and move around in space.  Spaceplane, Dawn’s suborbital and orbital rocket-powered planes operate much like a fleet of aircraft, taking off and landing horizontally at airports. Mk-II is a suborbital plane designed to fly 100 km above the Earth and aims to be the first vehicle to access space multiple times per day. An active test flight program of the Mk-II Aurora spaceplane demonstrator has seen 50+ flights completed. The vehicle serves as a technology demonstrator for the two-stage-to-orbit vehicle, the Mk-III. In-space propulsion, Dawn is now a leading supplier of turnkey green propulsion systems for NanoSat, MicroSat, ESPA, and ESPA Grande-class satellites. Dawn propulsion technology often achieves superior performance than traditional hydrazine systems by using a unique, green-propellant combination; nitrous oxide and propylene. Having proven this technology on orbit for both CubeSats and small satellites, Dawn propulsion systems have now flown on Vega, Falcon 9, and Soyuz launchers.
