At the beginning of this month, a two-days remote school had been organised by the consortium on smart materials for opto-electronic applications. The aim was to bring to the attendees the concepts and basic working principles on Smart Materials Technologies from experts in the fields coming from both academy and industries. 16 lectures had been given for addressing complete understanding of how the Smart Materials have been exploited for achieving recent significant results in ground-breaking research of PULSE-COM as well as in applied sciences by investigators working in the PULSE-COM consortium.
The 6 focused sessions covered:
- Piezo-electric Materials – 1 talk by Mateusz Wlazło (CBRTP);
- Photo-active Materials – 3 talks by Katarzyna Matczyszyn (Wrocław University of Science and Technology), Domenico Sagnelli (CNR) and Francesco Simoni (Università Politecnica delle Marche);
- Nano-fabrication by top down and bottom up approaches: Electron Beam Lithography and Colloidal Lithography – 2 talks by Bogdan Calin (INFLPR), Lucia Petti (CNR) and Bogdan Sava (INFLPR);
- Advanced printing technologies & additive manufacturing – 3 talks by Maria Montanino (ENEA), Fulvia Villani (ENEA) and Dumitru Ulieru (SITEX 45);
- Characterization techniques and their implementation in Smart Materials and devices – 3 talks by Giuseppe Nenna (ENEA), Massimo Rippa (CNR) and Ambra Vestri (CNR);
- Application of Smart Materials – 4 talks by Jolan Gauthier (Cedrat Technologies), Maciej Haras (CEZAMAT), Giuseppe Nenna (ENEA) and Dumitru Ulieru (SITEX 45).
All sessions had been recorded in order to be shared online. By consequence, the content of that school will soon become available online. Stay tuned to our website and to our LinkedIn page for updates on that topic.
With 42 attendees connected online and 17 physically present in the meeting room, this first event is a great success. We have already plenty of ideas for the next edition!
