Spring Training at ApNANO for Francesca and Chiara

Chiara Olla (University of Cagliari) and Francesca Airaldi (University of Genoa) just left us after spending three months in our lab as Erasmus+ trainees. Both will next defend their Master degrees projects with new data and training in magnetometry and X-ray diffraction. We learnt with Chiara about the magnetism and structure of luminescent carbon dots doped with gadolinium synthesized in a mesoporous silica matrix, whereas Francesca studied

magnetic properties of different bi-magnetic core/shell ferrite nanoparticles. Both will pursue PhD studies back in Italy, best of luck with it!
