The 12th and 13th of September 2022, the PULSE-COM project organised the 2nd edition of the Summer School on Smart Materials for Opto-Electronic Applications in hybrid format. Thanks to the talented and experienced speakers who intervene this edition had been a real success.
The aim of that school was to bring to the attendees the concepts and basic working principles of Smart Materials Technologies from experts in the fields coming from both Academy and industries. Lectures had been given for addressing complete understanding of how the Smart Materials have been exploited for achieving recent significant results in groundbreaking research of the FET project PULSE-COM as well as in applied sciences by investigators working in the PULSE-COM Consortium.
The main scope of this International School was to provide a rapid training on 6 different advanced technologies, namely:
- Piezo-electric Materials
- Photo-active Materials
- Nano-fabrication by top down and bottom up approaches: Electron Beam Lithography and Colloidal Lithography
- Advanced printing technologies & additive manufacturing
- Characterization techniques and their implementation in Smart Materials and devices
- Application of Smart Materials
This event, sponsored by ThermoFisher Scientific and Acal bfi gathered more than 70 people. Part of them where physically present in Cetraro while most of the students were online.
One of the novelties of that edition was the introduction of a student contest. PhD student had 3 min to introduce their studies. Congratulations to the two students from the Università degli Studi di Napoli ‘Parthenope’. Elena De Vita had presented her work on “Fiber optics for thermal monitoring of tumor ablation” and Sidrish Zahra made a talk on “Fabrication of Mechanically Induced 3D Embedded Optical Fiber Sensors”.
