The vault-like, 40-foot diameter, 40-ton door of Chamber A at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston was unsealed on November 18, signaling the end of cryogenic testing for NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. The historic chamber's massive door opening brings to a close about 100 days of testing for Webb, a significant milestone in the telescope's journey to the launch pad. The cryogenic vacuum test began when the chamber was sealed shut on July 10, 2017. Scientists and engineers at Johnson pu...

Europe's next four Galileo navigation satellites and the Ariane 5 rocket due to lift them into orbit are being readied for their 12 December launch from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. Tuesday saw Galileo satellites 19-22 declared ready for flight, along with their Ariane. Combined activities are now under way, culminating in the satellites meeting their rocket in the Final Assembly Building. The satellites were flown in pairs to French Guiana last month. Once safely unboxed i...

A mini-rover, tools once used on the Moon and lasers for 3D mapping are in the backpack of the explorers of tomorrow. The terrain will be hazardous and it will be dark in volcanic caves, but this equipment could one day help to scout other planets. The alien-like landscapes of Lanzarote, Spain, are almost surreal but this volcanic island is helping to bring future space missions to reality. This month, an expedition with a dozen of experiments mobilised 50 people and four space agencies du...

For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. The new results appear in the journal Nature on 20 November 2017. ...

Twice as big as Earth, the super-Earth 55 Cancri e was thought to have lava flows on its surface. The planet is so close to its star, the same side of the planet always faces the star, such that the planet has permanent day and night sides. Based on a 2016 study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists speculated that lava would flow freely in lakes on the starlit side and become hardened on the face of perpetual darkness. The lava on the dayside would reflect radiation from th...

Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

    Work experience

     

    Dates From September 2008 to February 2012

    Employer Istituto Nazionale di Ottica - CNR -- Largo Enrico Fermi 6, 50125, Firenze, Italy.

    Sector Optics Research Center

    Position Associated member

    Activities I collaborated to different research projects concerning:

    • Neural Networks: numerical (MatLab an Berkeley-Madonna algorithms) and analog (OrCad electronic board planning) implementation of networks based on chaotic oscillators reproducing neural dynamics. Data analysis (OriginPro and MatLab) for chaos control and synchronization purposes.

    • Laser Dynamics: characterization and analysis of the chaotic behavior in the modulated CO2 laser . Experiments and numerical simulations concerning the control of bursting, bistability and synchronization have been performed.

    • Interferometry: interferometric and adaptive interferometric techniques developed by means of different laser sources (CO2, DPSS, He-Ne). Planning (including mechanical parts in AutoCad), implementation and alignment of interferometers for measurements in transmission and reflection.

    • Holographic Microscopy: holographic microscope implementation for refraction index measurements. Numerical 3D reconstruction of holograms (MatLab algorithms). That technique has been applied on organic components and on different materials (measurements have been performed on apical roots and on diffraction gratings induced in a polymer (PMMA) by means of a femtosecond laser).

    Sector Optics Research Center

    Position Collaborator

    Activities Project work developed in collaboration with the INO departments of Florence and Naples, concerning the Infrared Digital Holography (IDH) (part of the European project “Real 3D”). An innovative technique which allows to record and reconstruct holograms of large objects has been performed. Numerical algorithms (MatLab) permit phase and amplitude digital reconstruction of the acquired holograms. The visible reconstruction has been obtained implementing an optical set up with a green laser (DPSS). Further development concerns the resolution improvement of the reconstructed images by means of stitching algorithms. The technique has been successfully tested also in poor visibility conditions.
