CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR 2 RESEARCH GRANTS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AT ELETTRA SINCROTRONE TRIESTE FACILITIES IN THE FRAME OF THE “‘InCIMa4” PROJECT. CALL A9/2019

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

Riferimento Bando: CALL A9/2019

 

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 2 research grants, 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 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 holders, 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 natural polymers characterization techniques through FTIR spectroscopy and microscopy using conventional and synchrotron light, infrared nanoscopy techniques, such as IR-PTE (Photo-Thermal Expansion) and IR s-SNOM (scattering-type near-field optical microscopy), as well as macro and micro UVresonant Raman (UVRR) for “in operando” natural polymers characterization with conventional laser sources and synchrotron light.

Research activities will be carried out on Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste premises at the SISSI – Chemical and Life Sciences branch and IUVS – Inelastic UV Scattering beam lines, 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.
