Invited talks by G. Volpe and A. Magazzù at “SPACE Tweezers” Kick-off Meeting, Messina, Italy, 18-19 February 2020

Alessandro Magazzù and Giovanni Volpe will give invited presentations at the Kick-off meeting of SPACE Tweezers (Spectroscopy of Planetary and AtmospheriC particulatE by optical Tweezers).

SPACE Tweezers proposes research activities to trap and characterise spectroscopically extraterrestrial particles and their analogs. The opportunity to apply optical tweezers to planetary particulate matter can pave the way for space applications for in situ analyses and/or for sample return of particles in pristine conditions, i.e. preventing contamination and alteration, unlike collection methods so far used in space exploration.

The meeting, organised by Maria Grazia Donato, Pietro Guicciardi, Maria Antonia Iatì, and Onofrio M. Maragò, will take place at CNR-IPCF, Messina, on 18-19 February 2020.

The contributions of Giovanni Volpe and Alessandro Magazzù will be presented  according to the following schedule:

Giovanni Volpe
Optical Tweezers Activities in Gothenburg
Date: 19 February 2020
Time: 10:55 CET

Alessandro Magazzù
Controlling the Dynamics of Colloidal Particles by Critical Casimir Forces using Blinking Optical Tweezers
Date: 19 February 2020
Time: 11:20 CET
