II INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP MATERIALS ENGINEERING - UFRN

News date: 
Saturday, 24 October, 2015

Professor Dr. Roberto Marchiori participated to the” II INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP MATERIALS ENGINEERING – UFRN, that was organized by DEMAT - Department of Materials Engineering, in the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN) Technology Center, Natal (RN)-Brazil, in the period of 20 to 23 October 2015.
The workshop aimed to increasing the cooperation between the University and the productive sector, as well as to improving the collaboration with foreign Institutions.

Professor Dr. Roberto Marchiori presented on quality of Guest Speaker, a Conference papers entitled: “Introduction to graphene nanotechnology -European Projects for graphene energy applications ".
In this lecture was presented the network of European collaboration research on nanomaterials involving ARES-FBK. Emphasis was given to research on graphene, the most promising nanostructured material, talking about study and application of graphene in the context of two European projects on going in FBK, the GRAPHENE FLAGSHIP project and the EDEN project.

In the same workshop, on 10.23.2015, Prof. Marchiori also gave the Short Course: "Introduction to nanofilms and nanotechnology - Modeling of nanofilms and nanomaterials".
In this course was presented an introduction to the study of the surface of nanomaterials, with emphasis on related issues. Mathematical simulation was introduced, applied to the growth of a film on a surface, as an effective mean for studying and controlling the formation of a film in advanced materials.
