Research activity in evidence

  • Interaction between electromagnetic fields and nanoparticles
    According to an estimate of the World Health Organization, about 12 million new cancer cases and about 8 million deaths have occurred in 2008. Currently, radical resection of the tumor, in the earliest stages of development, represents the only way to cure this disease. It often happens that metastases are…
  • Cooperative effects between electromagnetic fields and environmental pollutants or model molecules
    In the bioelectromagnetic research, the synergistic interaction between both low and high frequency electromagnetic fields, with other chemical and physical agents, is an aspect still scantly investigated, but which can provide useful information for both human safety and biomedical applications. The small entity electromagnetic field effects may intensify the effects…

Application in evidence

  • Water quality and coastal vegetation
    Traditional methodologies, that for more than a century allowed to study lakes, over the last years have been joined by satellite technologies that allow you to monitor large portions of territory, beyond the geo-political boundaries and in remote areas of the planet with frequent and continuous observations over time. Our…
  • Sub-surface imaging
    A non-destructive and minimally invasive characterization of non-directly accessible spatial regions is of huge interest in several applicative fields. Examples are: - detection and monitoring of utilities; - mapping of asphalt layers extent and status; - remote investigation of planets’ soil in order to detect the presence of water; -…
