"Modelling analysis of magnetic nanoparticles and nanostructured magnetic systems for biomedical applications"
Thesis for Master of Science degree (second academic degree)
Tutor: Alessandra Manzin
Description of the activities:
The aim of the proposed activity is the modelling analysis of magnetic nanoparticles and nanostructured magnetic systems as efficient heat mediators for applications in cancer therapy via magnetically mediated hyperthermia. Particular attention will be devoted to the influence on specific loss power of several physical and geometrical parameters (size, shape, morphology, magnetocrystalline anisotropy, saturation magnetization of magnetic nanostructures), as well as their concentration, spatial distribution and degree of mutual interactions. After a specific training on the physical models and their numerical implementation, the applicant will perform related simulations in the High Performance Computing Lab of Biomedical Metrology Program, by using ad-hoc numerical codes previously developed and validated at INRIM.
Proposal validity: from September 2017, no final date
