Course Description
The course will provide the attendees with the basic working knowledge to perform morphological and morphometrical based characterization of closed domains, with particular reference to 2D and 3D nano-domains, as resulting from nano-particles aggregates and/or originally produced nano-structures. Attendees, at the end of the course, will become fluent in the selection and design of analytical tools and architectures able to select, implement and customize a wide range of morphological and morphometrical tools, whose utilization will profitably applied also in other sectors, not strictly related to nano-particles, as biology, medicine, agriculture, materials science, food, environment, etc.

Target Audience
Scientists, researchers, engineers, technicians and students interested and/or involved in the design of control tools, both at laboratory and industrial scale, to characterize “domains” presenting complex morphology or being such a parameter a distinctive feature to analyze.

Course Outline
The course will be addressed to give the fundamentals of digital morphology and to show the great potentialities of its utilization in many nano-materials related research sectors where “closed domain quantitative morphological evaluation” (i.e. nano-particles/aggregates manufacturing and nano-structured-products) can represent an important issue. Case studies will be presented and critically evaluated.

Course Instructor's Biography
Prof. Giuseppe Bonifazi is Full Professor of Raw Materials Engineering, Director of the Research and Service Centre for Sustainable Technological Innovation of La Sapienza. He has over 30 year experience in characterization and processing of primary and secondary raw materials with more than 250 papers. He took part in 12 EU Research Projects and has one patent on application of chemical imaging to kidney stones characterization. Main scientific and technical fields object of investigation: i) study of software and hardware integrated architectures for the synthesis, the classification and the recognition of complex 2D and 3D structures; ii) development and set up of procedures for the identification of objects and material using pattern recognition techniques based on classical and hyperspectral imaging techniques and iii) analysis and the application of methodologies to study and model industrial processes with reference to particulate solids material.
