Argomenti di tesi proposti dal docente.

TOPICS: Technology, Informatics, Electronics

  1. Research and development of a hardware firewall, based on customfabricated electronic boards, to wide network security applications. The work will mainly consist of the firmware development of digital algorithms on Xilinx FPGA-based platforms. The candidate will become familiar with high-speed electro-optical connections using FPGAs

TOPICS: Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics

  1. The candidate will join a project that has been widely launched in the
    international ATLAS collaboration at CERN, with particular attention to the
    research and development of data-acquisition and trigger systems using
    custom-fabricated electronic boards. This work will complete the data
    acquisition system currently present in the ATLAS pixel acquisition chain.
    The INFN association is also possible to partially carry out the activity at
    CERN or at BNL (USA).
  2. Implementation of trigger algorithms based on neural-networks for LHC
    upgrade, mainly for the ATLAS experiment at CERN. The work will be
    proposed as solution for innovative triggering systems particularly required
    to pixel-detector upgrades.
  3. The work consists in High-Speed (GByte/s) electro-optical links
    communication tests on electronic boards used for many applications.
    Mainly these are related to the Phase-2 LHC upgrade at CERN but can be
    also oriented to a technology teansfer to the market.

TOPICS: Applied Physics

  1. Analysis of the fuel truck explosion of the tanker in the motorway in Borgo
    Panigale in August 2018. After the car crash the explosion was twofold: first
    a physical explosion (B.L.E.V.E. Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosion)
    of the GPL gas without combustion took place then the expanded gas
    burned causing a huge fireball.
