Subject areas of I.I.T. Scholarships
PhD POSITION at [email protected] “CENTER FOR SPACE HUMAN ROBOTICS”
http://shr.iit.it/
http://www.polito.it/micronanotech
- “Fabrication and characterization of neuromorphic devices for robotics”
Memristors are memory resistors that promise the efficient implementation of synaptic
weights in artificial neural networks, whose role is that of sorting and clustering an
information feed, giving as output elaborated signals. Yet, there is the evidence that
potassium and sodium ion-channels distributed over the entire length of the axons of
human neurons are locally active memristors. Aim of the PhD thesis activity will be the
fabrication and characterization of memristive systems based on ZnO nanostructures in
photo-curable methacrylic resins, the study of memristive systems based on PANI and
PANI composites, the fabrication of inkjet-printed memristive cross-bar array circuits.
- "Electron and ion beam lithographies for advanced characterization and
processing"
The activity will be focused on the design and optimization of innovative tools for the
morphological, structural and functional characterization of materials through electron and
ion beam lithographies. Part of the activity will be also spent for the Field Emission
Scanning Electron Microscopy and for the Transmission Electron Microscopy
characterization of materials, thus validating the quality of the developed tools.
- “Design and fabrication of new smart structures through additive manufacturing,
and in particular through Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)”
To design and fabricate innovative and smart architectures, it is necessary to know how a
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) machine works. Through this technology it is possible
to transform metal powder into a solid part by melting it locally using a focused highpowered 200 Watt Yb-fiber optic laser. Parts are built up additively layer by layer, with a
typical thickness of 30 µm. The process involves use of a 3D CAD model, usually
generated by SolidWorks; then a .stl file must be created with a dedicated software, and
sent to the machine’s software. Once this ‘build file’ has been completed, it is ‘sliced’ into
the layer thickness the machine will build it and downloaded to the machine allowing the
build to begin.
- “From powders to dense metal parts: study, development and characterization of
innovative materials for additive manufacturing”
The main objective of the research project is to study and develop new materials powders
to be processed through a Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) machine for different

applications, from heat-exchangers to structural parts for automotive and aerospace. Two
main trends will be considered: structural materials with high specific strength and
stiffness, like light metal composites and nanocomposites; smart materials like shape
memory alloys able to behave as structural parts and as actuators themselves. Till now
very few studies were reported on the fabrication of MMCs and SMAs by DMLS process.
This means that efforts will be devoted to the complete powder preparation and
characterization (flowability, grain size and shape, chemical composition) followed by a
deep study to set the correct parameters (such as layer thickness, hatching distance, laser
pulse energy) to obtain parts with the highest density and the desired qualities. Moreover,
a strong accent will be put also on the DMLS machine preparation and use, and on the
final DMLS parts characterization, i.e. from the mechanical point of view (microhardness,
tensile and Charpy tests) to the comprehension of the very fine microstructures typical of
this process, by means of different techniques like electron microscopy and
nanoindentation.
- “Full body sEMG monitoring”
Human motion capture (MoCap) finds applications ranging from entertainment (movies
and games) to rehabilitation and sport activity monitoring. Standard marker-based
technologies have been recently replaced in several applications with innovative markerless systems. The main limitation of these systems is that they provide only kinematic
measurements, typically position, velocities and accelerations. Starting from a technology
previously developed and tested on the iCub, this research proposal aims at developing a
prototype of a force and motion capture system for humans. In order to overcome the
limitations of available technologies, the system will be based on multiple sensor
modalities (e.g. vision, touch, force, gyro, accelerometers, electromyography) fused in a
Bayesian sense. The project is highly interdisciplinary and technological.
- "Innovative approaches for fast portable polymeric 3D printing"
Prototypes play a strategic role in the product design process, since they allow exploring
several designs, testing different theories, and validating the behaviour of structures before
starting an industrial production. The fabrication quality achievable by polymer prototyping
technology has significantly increased during the last decade, opening new opportunities
of use.
This PhD proposal focuses on the development of a new procedure for fast and reliable
printing of polymeric 3D structures with high aspect ratio. Emphasis will be given to both
the design and optimization of a new portable equipment, as well as the optimization of
new UV sensitive resins.
- "Biotechnology for Energy: from living systems to living devices"
Bioelectrochemical Fuel Cells typically use bio-catalysts and biodegradable fuels. The
inner volume of the cell is filled with an aqueous solution acting as the source of the
organic fuel (as glucose, ethanol or wastewater). A cation exchange membrane separates
the two compartments, leaving protons free to move from the anode to the cathode.
Typical organic catalyst are enzymes or whole bacteria in mixed populations. This

technology is not sufficiently mature and economically attractive to compete with traditional
Fuel Cells yet. An effective transversal scientific approach among different disciplines, in
particular with microbiology and biotechnology, is needed in order to achieve optimized
bio-films. The aim of this PhD thesis is to investigate the bio-film spontaneously generated
into the device, gaining a better understanding of the bio-film features related to the device
performances in terms of power production.
Reserved Scholarships
University scholarship for the specialism in Electrical Engineering in the frame of
the agreement with the JRC of European Commission
Distributed Energy Sources in Emerging Electricty Distribution Systems (Smart Grids)
Do you really want to impact on the energy challenges? The Joint Research Center (JRC),
Institute for Energy and Transport of the European Commission with its cutting edge
research facilities is providing scientific support to Europe in the field of energy. Within a
cooperation between Politecnico and JRC the fellowship will provide the candidate with the
possibility to be involved in this process.
Europe’s power system has to face major transformations in its evolution towards smarter
grid architectures. A smart electricity grid can be defined as an upgraded electricity
network that can intelligently integrate the actions of all users connected to it in order to
ensure more efficient, secure and sustainable power supply.
One of the main drivers of smart grid deployment is the integration of distributed
generation, distributed energy storage and demand side management. These three
solutions/systems, often grouped under the name of distributed energy resources (DERs),
entail a central role for technologies like renewable energy based power generation and
electric vehicles (EV).
Even if a certain amount of DER can be accommodated by today's power systems, their
massive deployment calls for a new operation philosophy, revised design criteria and
upgraded architecture concepts.
In particular, Electric Vehicles can be used to flatten the load curve, thus increasing the
overall efficiency of the system and can also be deployed as a storage medium in a
concept commonly referred to as vehicle-to-grid (V2G). The massive roll out of electric
mobility – with their inherent mobile storage device capability – can provide increased
means for intelligently balancing the electricity network.
In this area, several research questions need to be addressed: how could EVs be smartly
coordinated with the production of DERs to reduce the peak load on the power grid? How
can we achieve maximum benefit from the charging and discharging of EVs in future
electricity networks? Is the smart integration of EVs feasible in technical and economic
terms? What are the recommendations for optimal charging infrastructure in terms of
type/number and grid enhancement costs?

Marie Curie European Program
Initial Training Networks
(Call identifier: FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN, Implementation mode: Multi-ITN)
Project acronym: WALL; Grant agreement no.: 608031
Project full title:
Controlling Domain Wall dynamics for functional devices
WALL is an European training network on the topic of domain walls in nanoscale magnetic
structures, which will provide the next generation of researchers in this area with advanced
technology. Domain walls (DWs) are the interfaces separating magnetic domains, their
high speed manipulation in nanostructures will lead to the next generation of new and low
power functional devices for computation and communication. The consortium that has
come together to deliver this training is uniquely qualified to do so, consisting of worldleading experts on condensed matter physics (ISI Foundation - Torino, Univ. of Leeds,
Johannes Gutenberg-University of Mainz, Université Paris Sud, Univ. de Salamanca) and
leading private companies (IBM, Sensitec GmbH, Singulus Technologies), along with a
range of associated partners spanning basic research, instrumentation development,
industrial and consumer electronic products, and research and technology policy. The
consortium provides a rich training environment that is both international and
multidisciplinary, where young fellows will both study the cutting edge of science and
technology in depth, but also come to appreciate the breadth of the field in terms of its
intellectual challenges, commercial concerns, and relationship to society’s need for ever
more powerful information technologies with a reduced environmental footprint. This will
enable them to contribute to the strengthening of both the European Research Area and
the European Information and Communication Technology (ICT) industry, particularly for

Marie Curie European Program
Initial Training Networks
(Call identifier: FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN, Implementation mode: Multi-ITN)
Project acronym: FACT; Grant agreement no.: 607493
Project full title:
Future Atomic Clocks Technology
FACT is a training network on the topic of optical clocks which will train the next generation
of researchers in this field. Optical clocks are now offering performances even better than
Cesium clocks, presently used to realize the definition of the second. The unprecedented
stability and accuracy of optical clocks, turn them into fundamental devices not only for
time and frequency metrology but also for fundamental physics and relativistic geodesy.
The Consortium FACT was born from a previous European project which aimed to
improve the technologies of clocks towards the realization of an optical clock suitable for
space application. The consortium delivering the training is composed of leading experts
in this field, and offers a complete training with secondments in the main European
metrological and academic institutions.
The involved young researcher has the unique opportunity to be trained in the most skilled
metrological istitutions and becoming an expert in the field.
In the frame of this project, the Politecnico di Torino shall reserve 1 position for the PhD
program in Metrology.
