This week's featured researches
Dust in fusion devices is still an open issue from the point of view of plasma operations and safety and due to its high fuel retention capability and mobility.
Thus, dust behaviour in such environments needs to be understood.
The analysis of this behaviour is both theoretical, focused on dust mobilization conditions, and experimental, aiming at mimicking these conditions.
Development and characterization of highly water repellent (superhydrophobic) coatings (SHC);
Wettability properties of highly water repellent surfaces;
Development of self-healing systems for coatings subject to wearing.
Biomedical fabrics with antibacterial or, more generally, therapeutic purposes are a challenging manufacturing task in textile industries. From one side, the fabric itself hosts the bacteria acting as a medium between the human organism and the microorganisms; on the other hand, it is regarded as a well assessed tool for drug delivery in contact of skin for external applications.
