News & events

The 3rd OXiNEMS project meeting took place on April 22nd and 23rd in a web-based format. Participants from all the OXiNEMS units discussed the recent results on the project activities and attended the exploitation workshop run by META Group, working together on the topic of identifying and characterizing Key Exploitable Results coming from the project.

OXiNEMS - second project meeting

The second project meeting took place in Chieti (Italy) at ITAB - Institute for Advanced Biomedical Technologies on November 21st-22nd.

The participants had the opportunity to visit the MEG system and the Very-Low field MRI system operating at ITAB. Specifically, the participants had the possibility to discuss all the technical details relating the operation of the prototype device in a biomagnetic environment. The OXiNEMS magnetic field sensors will be finally tested in such a facility inside the Magnetically Shielded Rooms.

kick-off meeting of the H2020 FET OPEN project OXiNEMS

The kick-off meeting of the H2020 FET OPEN project OXiNEMS has been organized at CNR-SPIN headquarters in Genova on May 6th and 7th, 2019.

The involved European groups gathered to strengthen relationships, have scientific discussions and detail the first steps of the project.The OXiNEMS project plans to develop innovative nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) based on multifunctional (epitaxial) transition metal oxides. The OXiNEMS team will implement ultrasensitive detectors able to measure very weak magnetic fields targeting those generated by human brain activity, of the order of tens of femtotesla.

Simone CuccurulloSimone Cuccurullo received the Master degree diploma in Physical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano with a thesis work on new magnetometers combining MEMS and magnetic elements. 
This is the first Master thesis of the OXiNEMS project, congratulations to Simone!

 

Call for PhD position at the University of Chieti-Pescara

A call for an OXiNEMS PhD student has been launched at UdA. The topic of the research program is  "Methods for the characterization and validation of an innovative device, based on nanoelectromechanical sensors, for the measurement of magnetic fields generated by biological tissues". The PhD student will participate to the project activities and interact with the other partners of the project.

The scholarship is comprised in the multidisciplinary PhD course in Neuroscience and Imaging. The students background should be Physics or Engineering.  The scholarship is about 15300 Euro/year including taxes, resulting in about 1100 Euro/month excluding taxes.

All details on the call can be found at the link https://www.scuolasuperiore.unich.it/bandi/bando-di-concorso-lammissione-al-dottorato-di-ricerca-xxxvi-ciclo-aa-20202021

The deadline is August 25th. To apply, the specific research program should be selected.
