Nanometer Resolution in Two-Beam Direct Laser Writing Lithography
ID: 631316
Start date: 2014-03-01, End date: 2018-02-28
Two-photon direct laser writing (DLW) lithography is a powerful tool to fabricate 3D structures with feature sizes of ~100 nm. This technique is based on the quadratic dependence of the absorption of near-infrared (NIR) light (two-photon absorption, 2PA) by molecules called p...

Social Interaction Characteristics for Socially Accepted Robots
ID: 627688
Start date: 2014-09-15, End date: 2016-11-13
"Why robotic research, despite its advances, has not yet lead to the widespread use of robots in operative contexts treatable through human-robot cooperation? The SICSAR project proposes that the main reason resides not in intrinsic technical difficulties, but in the limits o...

A computational study of the interaction between nanoplastic and model biological membranes
ID: 618560
Start date: 2013-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
Every year, millions of tons of plastic litter are reversed into the oceans, washed up on the shores or piled in landfills. There, plastics are degraded down to the micro and nano scale, and enter the food chain. Plastic particles can transport toxic substances, but the effec...

Strain, Lattice, Interactions and Entanglement in novel Two-Dimensional materials
ID: 618337
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
The isolation of graphene in 2004 has triggered the most promising expectations in the field of condensed matter. One of the main drawbacks for realistic application is however the lack of a band gap in single layer compounds. To overcome this shortcoming, alternative two-dim...

Variability in Relativistic Jets: the Fastest Time Scales at all Wavelengths
ID: 322259
Start date: 2012-09-01, End date: 2016-08-31
I propose to fully harness a new exciting window recently opened in Astrophysics, which I am pioneering: the study of multi-lambda fast variability from relativistic jets from stellar-mass compact objects. I will (a) identify and apply strategies to maximize the scientific ou...

Magnetic Fields in Neutron Stars via Numerical Simulations
ID: 321833
Start date: 2012-08-01, End date: 2016-07-31
Neutron Stars (NSs) are what is left after a massive stars terminates its life in a Supernova Explosion. It was immediately evident the role of rotation and magnetic fields in characterizing their phenomenology. We now know several different class of NSs, whose peculiarities ...

miR-483-3p and drug resistance in Hepatocarcinoma
ID: 303987
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2016-09-30
Hsa-mir-483 is located within intron 2 of the INS-IGF2 gene. We have previously shown oncogenic features of miR-483-3p targeting the pro-apoptotic gene BBC3/PUMA (P53 up-regulated modulator of apoptosis gene) giving drug resistance to cells. Generally the IGF2 and miR-483 exp...
