PHOEBO group studies biophysical models in order to
explain the main characteristics of the ultraweak luminescence from
biological systems and tries to experimentally verify the existence
or not of cellular communication of non-chemical type.
group is also involved in the study of the interaction between
electromagnetic field and biological material with special attention
to the possibility to induce collective excitations able to carry
energy and information along the biological structures.
The group provided
state-of-the-art single photon counting instrumentation in studies
of low level luminescence, from the point of view of both the basis
research and the research applied to agriculture, ecology and
