Universita’ Degli Studi Di Milano-Bicocca (MIB)
Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca is a dynamic and multidisciplinary university,
engaged in important basic or applied researches in several fields. The participants of the project belong to the Physics Laboratory of the Department of Experimental Medicine. The Physics Laboratory contributes to CAPMIX with a wide expertise in the areas of electrochemistry, colloidal science, electrokinetic phenomena and applied physics.
The research activity of the group has been devoted to the study of electrokinetic properties of polyelectrolytes measured via dielectric spectroscopy, electric birefringence, and electrophoresis. Among the results, we cite the experimental measurement in the MHz region of a mechanism of electric polarization of polyelectrolyte (Maxwell Wagner). Recently, the research on electrokinetics led to the discovery and experimental observation of the phenomena on which EcCM technique is based.
