P.LAS.M.I. Lab @ Bari

PLASMIBariIn P.LAS.M.I. (Plasmi, Laser, Materiali Innovativi) Lab Bari, theoretical and experimental studies both on ionised gases and plasmas are carried on, starting from basic aspects, like the determination of dynamic data for elementary processes and the non-equilibrium distribution calculations made by statistical physics methods, up to technological applications. Partnerships with Universities, other Research Institutions and Industries are active in the field of thermal and low-temperature plasmas, generated by electric discharges, hypersonic flows and laser-matter interaction, for applications to aerospace, environment, energetics, astro-chemistry, cultural heritage, innovative materials.

Main research lines are:

Plasma Modelling; Diagnostics and Spectroscopy of Plasmas and Laser-Plasmas;

Innovative Materials by plasmas and/or lasers.

Most recent funded projects are: EU FP7 “Phys4Entry” and PON-MIUR-DTA “Apulia Space” in aerospace field; POR Puglia “Restaureo” on cultural heritage, POR Puglia “HALL” on electrical propulsion.

Some important partnerships are: with INFN_Bari and Padova about negative ion sources for ITER Program; with the Department of Chemistry @UNIBA on the interaction of “laser ablation nanoparticles” with biological systems; with INFN_Bari on photocathodes and neutralizer cathodes for electrical thrusters made by diamond nanoparticles; with DMMM POLIBA, DITECH UNILE, DF UNITN on plasma assisted combustion; with UNIBAS Engineering School on thermodynamics and transport in plasmas.

  • Jam session Nanotec… note di scienza su scala nanometrica

    Lecce, 27 settembre 2019 – ex monastero degli Olivetani “CAR-T: l’alba di una nuova era”  con: Attilio Guarini (IRCCS Istituto Tumori “Giovanni Paolo II” di Bari)  introduce e modera: Marco Ferrazzoli (Ufficio Stampa CNR Roma) a cura di: Gabriella Zammillo 

    Le CAR-T (Chimeric Antigens Receptor Cells-T) sono cellule modificate in laboratorio a partire dai linfociti T. Rappresentano una nuova strategia di cura che sfrutta il sistema immunitario per combattere alcuni tipi di tumore come linfomi aggressivi a grandi cellule e leucemie linfoblastiche acute a cellule B. Il prof Attilio Guarini, ematologo all’Istituto tumori Giovanni Paolo II di Bari, le definisce la “vis sanatrix naturae della antica medicina salernitana”, trattandosi del potenziamento dell’attività citotossica dei linfociti del paziente opportunamente ingegnerizzati per riconoscere e contrastare alcuni tipi di cellule tumorali.
