The ESA-Gaia mission is producing an unprecedented revolution in Universe sciences. The discovery of quick magnetic transitions in young ultra-fast rotating stars is quite unexpected. In this colloquium, the consequences for the inference of stellar age, for the formation of planetary systems, and for the star-planet interactions will be discussed, together with the methodology that has led to such a discovery.


One-day workshop: accelerate towards the future!


#DFA opens its doors: Open Day 2019


On January 24th, 2019, starting at 9:00, at the #DFA, the following candidates will defend their PhD theses in Physics (Cycle XXXI):


Understanding the interior composition of neutron stars (NS) is an important goal of astrophysics and fundamental physics.


Alessio Cardillo on Complex networks: structure and dynamics. Arancini offered by EPS Young Minds!


On Wednesday December 19, 2018 at 12:00 noon in Aula Magna we shall exchange the traditional Christmas greetings. The Directors of all the research institutions (Sezione INFN, LNS, INAF, CNR e CSFNSM) operating within the DFA will also be present.


Cherenkov Telescope Array: Exploring the Universe at the highest energies (N. Giglietto, Bari)


We are experiencing an impressive improvement of microscopy techniques with achievable resolution having approached a level that makes possible to probe individual atoms. This progress has been driven by the effort to achieve a better understanding of the physical properties of materials and devices whose feature sizes are in the range of the nanometer scale. The talk will address the importance of these techniques in characterizing novel materials of interest for the future trend in microelectronics.
