IAP group partecipated to the “Notte Europea dei Ricercatori” (28th September 2018)

Our group participated to the “Notte Europea dei Ricercatori” (“European Night of Researchers”) on 28th September 2018 in Bologna (Italy).
We participated as members of the AlmaIdea Project “Studio dei meccanismi d’azione chimico‐fisici e biologici alla base dell’attività antitumorale di liquidi attivati con gas plasma per il trattamento della carcinosi peritoneale da tumore epiteliale dell’ovaio/tuba/peritoneo primitivo”, focused on the investigation of PALs (Plasma Activated Liquids) as potential antitumor agent in the treatment of peritoneal carcinosis.
Further details on the event can be found on the official webpage.


Dr. Emanuele Simoncelli and Filippo Capelli participated to IPS2018

The 8th International Workshop on Plasma Spectroscopy (IPS2018), focused on all types of spectroscopic methods such as FTIR, ATR, OES, LIF, CARS, laser absorption spectroscopy, frequency combs etc., and their various applications for diagnostics of gas discharges, took place on September 23rd – 26th, 2018 in Oxford, the United Kingdom.
Dr. Emanuele Simoncelli and Filippo Capelli participated bringing our contributions:
– UV-VIS optical spectroscopy investigation on the kinetics of long-lived RONS produced by a SDBD plasma source (poster presentation)
– Evaluation of absolute RONS concentrations in an air DBD reactor by means of UV-VIS optical absorption spectroscopy (poster presentation)
