The Department of Physics, at the University of Padova, have recently organized the exhibition “VETRO. Dall’antichità romana alle sonde spaziali” (“GLASS. From Roman antiquity to space probes”). This is a tribute to the International Year of Glass 2022 and it will last until April 30, 2023. The exhibition is hosted in the Giovanni Poleni Museum and with free access.
The Museum displays equipments from the Cabinet of Physics started in Padova by Giovanni Poleni in 1739 (famous in Europe at the time) and later enriched not only with cutting-edge devices, but also with 16th and 17th century instruments used for teaching.
Prof. Enrico Bernardo and his collaborators are happy to contribute to such exhibition with a couple of small samples, evidencing our long-term cooperation in the framework of FunGlass project. More precisely, ‘gyroid’ scaffolds from masked stereolithography 3D printing, starting from LCD glass powders (leading to the translucent scaffold, after sintering in air) [see https://lnkd.in/dP93Yk6Z] or from a silicone-based polymer blend (leading to the opaque scaffold, consisting of a glass-ceramic matrix biocomposite) [see https://lnkd.in/dfy_wWZc].
