Image-based Lagrangian Particle Tracking in Bed-load Experiments Alessio Radice1, Sankar Sarkar2, Francesco Ballio1 1Dept. of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Politecnico di Milano, 2Physics and Applied Mathematics Unit, Indian Statistical Institute The manuscript presents a protocol for the conduction of bed-load sediment transport experiments where the moving particles are tracked by image analysis. The experimental facility, the procedures for run realization and data processing, and finally some proof-of-concept results are presented here.
Fabrication of Nano-engineered Transparent Conducting Oxides by Pulsed Laser Deposition Paolo Gondoni1, Matteo Ghidelli1, Fabio Di Fonzo1,2, Andrea Li Bassi1,2, Carlo S. Casari1 1Department of Energy and NEMAS - Center for NanoEngineered Materials and Surfaces, Politecnico di Milano, 2Center for Nano Science and Technology, Instituto Italiano di Tecnologia We describe the experimental method to deposit nanostructured oxide thin films by nanosecond Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) in the presence of a background gas. By using this method Al-doped ZnO (AZO) films, from compact to hierarchically structured as nano-tree forests, can be deposited.
