A 1D mechanical model for nanogranular films, based on a structural interface, is here presented. The analytical dispersion relation for the frequency and lifetimes of the acoustics breathing modes is obtained in terms of the interface layer thickness and porosity. The model is successfully benchmarked both against 3D Finite Element Method simulations and experimental photoacoustic data on a paradigmatic system available from the literature. A simpler 1D model, based on an homogenized interface,...

PURPOSE: To classify COVID-19, COVID-19-like and non-COVID-19 interstitial pneumonia using lung CT radiomic features. MATERIAL AND METHODS: CT data of 115 patients with respiratory symptoms suspected for COVID-19 disease were retrospectively analyzed. Based on the results of nasopharyngeal swab, patients were divided into two main groups, COVID-19 positive (C +) and COVID-19 negative (C-), respectively. C- patients, however, presented with interstitial lung involvement. A subgroup of C-, COVID-1...

OBJECTIVES: To test whether 3T MRI radiomics of breast malignant lesions improve the performance of predictive models of complete response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy when added to other clinical, histological and radiological information. METHODS: Women who consecutively had pre-neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) 3T DCE-MRI between January 2016 and October 2019 were retrospectively included in the study. 18F-FDG PET-CT and histological information obtained through lesion biopsy were also available....

Background and Objective: The aim of this study was to assess the ability of Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) to provide functional information useful in predicting pathological response to an intensive neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy (nCRT) protocol for both esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and adenocarcinoma (ADC) patients. Material and Methods: Esophageal carcinoma (EC) patients, treated in our Center between 2014 and 2018, were retro...

Antimicrobial coatings are a promising strategy to counteract the spreading of multi-drug-resistant pathogens through cross-contamination of surfaces. Coatings with nanostructured characteristics can exploit the different antimicrobial mechanisms of nanomaterials provided the composition, the morphology and the mechanical properties of the film can be tuned by the specific synthesis methods. This review addresses the synthesis of antibacterial nanostructured coatings with a focus on physical syn...

Abstract Antimicrobial coatings are a promising strategy to counteract the spreading of multidrug resistant pathogens through cross-contamination of surfaces. Coatings with nanostructured characteristics can exploit the different antimicrobial mechanisms of nanomaterials if the synthesis methods are able to tune the composition, morphology, and mechanical properties of the film. This chapter addresses the synthesis of antibacterial nanostructured coatings with a focus on physical synthesis metho...

Abstract In order to account for non-Fourier heat transport, occurring on short time and length scales, the often-praised Dual-Phase-Lag (DPL) model was conceived, introducing a causality relation between the onset of heat flux and the temperature gradient. The most prominent aspect of the first-order DPL model is the prediction of wave-like temperature propagation, the detection of which still remains elusive. Among the challenges to make further progress is the capability to disentangle the in...

Abstract Environment friendly, thin and flexible devices require the synthesis of Indium-free new transparent conducting materials (TCM) with improved structural, thermal, electrical and optical properties. To overcome the critical issues raised by thinning the TCM, we propose a multilayer structure in which nanogranular Ag film obtained by supersonic cluster beam deposition is sandwiched in between Alluminum doped Zinc Oxide (AZO) thin layers. The introduction of the nanogranular Ag film, when ...

Bactericidal nanoparticle coatings are very promising for hindering the indirect transmission of pathogens through cross-contaminated surfaces. The challenge, limiting their employment in nosocomial environments, is the ability of tailoring the coating's physicochemical properties, namely, composition, cytotoxicity, bactericidal spectrum, adhesion to the substrate, and consequent nanoparticles release into the environment. We have engineered a new family of nanoparticle-based bactericidal coatin...

Accessing fluid infiltration in nanogranular coatings is an outstanding challenge, of relevance for applications ranging from nanomedicine to catalysis. A sensing platform, allowing quantifying the amount of fluid infiltrated in a nanogranular ultrathin coating, with thickness in the 10–40 nm range, is here proposed and theoretically investigated by multiscale modeling. The scheme relies on impulsive photoacoustic excitation of hypersonic mechanical breathing modes in engineered gas-phase-synthe...
