Scadenza: 02/01/2020 Ore: 23:59

Riferimento Bando: CALL A8/2019

 

Please note that Area Science Park’s Mail Registration Office will be closed on December 27, 30 and 31, 2019.

This call is aimed at awarding 1 research grant, pursuant to art. 22 of Italian Law n. 240 of 30 December 2010, to conduct research activities in the frame of the ‘InCIMa4’ project (see attached information sheet) focussing on optimization of smart functional materials characterization techniques through spectroscopy,

FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) microscopy and nanoscopy, UV-resonant Raman (UVRR) spectroscopy and microscopy, x-ray tomography, for both basic and applied research purposes in collaboration with industrial partners.

The research grant holder, under the supervision of the head of scientific research at Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, will be involved in particular in the following research activities:

Optimization of X-ray tomographic acquisition techniques of foams, porous and composite materials in absorption and phase contrast modes;

development of systems for “in operando” tomographic acquisitions;

development of efficient protocols for the analysis of porous materials and foams microstructure;

optimization of the infrared tomographic technique;

development of innovative protocols for the correlation of the morpho-chemistry of the sample with its physical and mechanical properties through integrated analysis of X-ray and infrared images.

Research activities will be carried out on Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste premises at the SYRMEP beam line, Strada Statale 14, km 163.5, Area Science Park, Basovizza – 34149 Trieste (Italy).

Some of the research activities to be carried out in the frame of the project will be conducted on the premises of InCIMa4 scientific partners (Fachhochschule Salzburg and Paris Lodron Universität Salzburg).

The person responsible for the administrative procedure is Fides Croppo.
