Welcome to the home page of the Noise in Physical Systems (NiPS) Laboratory at the Physics Department of the University of Perugia, Italy.

Our laboratory has a long-standing tradition in studying physical systems in the presence of noise. Our interest ranges from stochastic nonlinear dynamics modelling to thermal noise measurements, from designing nanoscale devices for ICT to probing the fundamental limits in energy dissipation. We are interested in approaching both theoretical and experimental aspects of the research activity.

NiPS Laboratory is also the home of the largest database of vibration time series for energy harvesting applications:

EnABLES Kick-off meeting, at the Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre, in Brussels

Brussels Jan 31st 2018



We just held the EnABLES Kick-off meeting, at the Bedford Hotel & Congress Centre, in Brussels.

At the meeting participated representatives from all the 9 partners.

NiPS Laboratory was represented by Francesco Orfei and Luca Gammaitoni.

EnABLES is a 4 year EC funded project EnABLES that will integrate key European research infrastructures (RIs) in powering the Internet of Things (IoT).

6 research institutes together with 5 knowledge hubs of excellence will address the long term needs of
energy management in self-powered smart sensor systems as required by IoT innovation. To enable truly
‘invisible’, unobtrusive and self-powered (autonomous) wireless devices a key challenge is to bridge the
gap between capturing ‘ambient’ energy supply from energy harvesting sources (EH), integrating new
devices for energy storage (ES) and taking into account the micro-power management (MPM)
requirements for miniaturised system operation.
