About

Marco Salerno did his M.Sc. work in Physics at the University of Pisa in 1993, on AFM measurements of surface friction of piezoceramics and biomolecular patterns. Between 1995 and 1998 MS worked on the development of a low-end, Neural-Network-driven AFM at the Scientific and Technological Park of Elba Island (Leghorn). MS received his Ph.D. for SNOM investigations of Plasmons in gold nanoparticles at the University of Graz (Austria) in 2002. In 2003 MS was a postdoc in electrochemical STM of Metalloproteins at the University of Modena. From 2004 to 2006 MS has fabricated and characterized patterned substrates for OLEDs and polymer DFB lasers, as a researcher of the National Nanotechnology Lab in Lecce. MS has been Team Leader of the SPM Lab of IIT in the period 2007-2011, and since January 2012 he is Research Technologist. MS current research interests are in nanoindentation, dental composites and implants, and nanoporous alumina.

 

Projects

Currently Marco Salerno is not taking part in any project funded by external sources. He is involved in the following research activities based on IIT institutional fundings:

# nanoporous metal oxides

Anodic porous alumina (APA) is grown on top of an aluminum foil in an electrochemical cell placed inside a thermostat. Due to the peculiar surface morphology the material has a wide range of applications: as a template for replica patterning of soft organic films or for electrochemical growth of metal nanowires; as a solid matrix for peculiar nanocomposites, after embedding nanoparticles into the pores; as an electrode for biosensors, e.g. by SERS, possibly after functionalization by proper biomolecules; as a rough substrate for the growth of cells. More recently anodic porous titania (APT) fabrication has also been started, which can find application in biomedical permanent implants.

* Main instruments used: EC setup, Materials-AFM, SERS setup.
* Main collaborators:
Wojciech Stepniowski (MUT Warsaw), Silvia Dante, Andrea Reverberi (UniGE).

 

# Dental restorative composites and implants

Different micro- and nano-particulate materials, such as e.g. silica, titania, alumina, are blended in a traditional (Bis-GMA based) resin, and photo-cured. Variation in the mechanical and thermal properties due to the filler loading is investigated, also with respect to aging.

* Main instruments used: Materials-AFM, DMA (Material Design and Characterization Lab), SEM-EDS (Electron Microscopy Lab, Nanochemistry Dept)
* Main collaborators:
Giacomo Derchi (dentist), Alice Scarpellini (Nanochemistry).

 

# Neuronal substrate patterns

Characterization and support to fabrication of adhesion protein patterns as well as other positive/negative neuronal cues, e.g. by direct writing with a Nanoarrayer. Strategies to optimize cell adhesion. Imaging od functional substrates by SKPM mode of AFM.

* Main instruments used: Materials-AFM, Nanoarrayer.
* Main collaborators:
Silvia Dante, Claudio Canale.
