The mission of AMO is to connect discovery and innovation through dedicated research for the potentials emerging from the convergence between electronics and photonics enabled by nanotechnology, between basic and applied research as well as the integration of physics and engineering. Although the innovations emerging from this triple of convergence are

known as decisive pacemakers for new industrial ecosystems, bridges remain still to be crossed. With a solid ground of scientific knowledge under the feet and experimental hands on realistic technology guidelines only the sky seems to be the limit for a highly motivated AMO team when these bridges are crossed in a collective motion.
