La genesi dei modelli: teoria, simulazioni e dati

25-27 Novembre 2019 Accademia dei Lincei, Roma

Sala delle Scienze Fisiche – Palazzo Corsini – via della Lungara, 10 – Roma

Nella pratica reale della ricerca scientifica si lavora, di fatto, sempre con “modelli”, termine che può essere inteso in modi anche molto diversi tra loro.

La meccanica classica e la meccanica quantistica, ad esempio, possono essere viste come modelli (in quanto buone approssimazioni di teorie ancora più generali); ma in questi casi siamo di fronte a descrizioni molto raffinate, e possiamo considerarle alla stregua di principi primi.… Read the rest

Alignment of Nonspherical Active Particles in Chaotic Flows – Physical Review Letters

Massimo Cencini has published Alignment of Nonspherical Active Particles in Chaotic Flows in Physical Review Letters.

Active particles, such as motile microorganisms or artificial microswimmers, swim in a surrounding flow, either externally imposed or self-generated. Besides transporting the active particles, the flow velocity change their swimming direction by exerting a shape-dependent torque through the velocity gradients. The complex interplay of flow advection, particle orientation and self-propulsion is fundamental to understand key processes at the crossroad between aquatic ecology, active matter modeling, and nano/micro- technology with application to drug delivery.… Read the rest

Documenti da Produrre per Le Missioni

(specifiche necessarie soprattutto per le missioni che verranno rendicontate nei progetti europei e non)

N.B Apertura delle missioni ai fini della autorizzazione del direttore fissata a 15 giorni prima dell’inizio della missione.

Bisogna prioritariamente fare sempre riferimento al manuale operativo missioni del CNR Circolare 11/2019

Fare attenzione se si tratta di una missione sul territorio italiano o all’estero perché’ alcune questioni sono regolate diversamente.… Read the rest

ATTRACT finanzia progetti innovativi

Il 20 e 21 maggio 2019 Silvia Capuani ha preso parte al kick-off meeting del progetto ATTRACT presso il CERN. ATTRACT mira a finanziare progetti molto innovativi riguardanti nuovi sensori e nuove tecniche di imaging. Con lo scopo di colmare la separazione fra ricerca fondamentale e il mercato, mira a riunire ricercatori, imprenditori e aziende. Nella fase attuale ha finanziato 170 progetti con 100k euro ciascuno da investire nei prossimi dodici mesi per dimostrarne la fattibilità.… Read the rest

A silver path for high temperature superconductivity

Superconductors are materials that conduct electricity without loss of energy when cooled to sufficiently low temperatures. This sort of perpetual movement of electrons allows the creation of large magnetic fields for applications such as magnetic resonance imaging, which is used in hospitals for diagnostics or experiments for the discovery of new particles in large CERN accelerators. These niche applications could become much more widespread if one could avoid having to cool the materials at very low temperatures.… Read the rest
