During the 2020 lockdown Marco Potenza developed many Optical experiences to be performed autonomously by the students at home to achieve the objectives of the third year Laboratory Course. The activity has been awarded by the Italian Physical Society.
Explaining the Dragonfish ultra-black skin, which contains pigment nanoparticles which not only absorb light but also scatter and circulate light, could be useful in highly efficient solar cells.
The project addressed to third year students (in 2021/2022) has started. Students will have the opportunity to make a video on a research theme, interacting with researchers and students of Unimi-Sorbonne-Heidelberg, also during visits to the other institutions.
The RADIOLAB project, which brings young people closer to the topic of radioactivity through field measurements of the concentration of the radioactive gas Rn-222 has taken on an international role. The Embassy of Italy in Tirana has published the work done by the students of the Italian-Albanian section of the Korcia Lyceum.
