Magnetic fluids consisting of stable suspensions of magnetic micro and nanoparticles in a carrier liquid have attracted a growing attention for their potential application in many fields including medicine, biotechnology, energy and environment, among others. The keynote lecture given by Prof. G. Friedman (Drexel University, USA) will explore various techniques of magnetic and non-magnetic nano- and micro-particle manipulation in fluids. Magnetized surface patterns and other surface feature will be demonstrated to permit control over magnetic particles and non-magnetic inclusions. Control over particle locomotion and pattern formation in bulk fluid volume away from surfaces will also be discussed.
In the following talks given by R. Bertacco (Politecnico di Milano), Marco Coïsson (INRIM), Diego Colombara (Università di Genova), Alessandro Surpi (CNR-ISMN) other relevant aspects related to the application of smart magnetic fluids will be presented.
The event is free of charge and will be held in a hybrid form (zoom platform).
