The (un)familiar properties of water, their effect on sustaining life and their origin
Martedì 6 luglio alle ore 15:00, Fausto Martelli (IBM Research Europe)  terrà il Colloquio di Fisica dal titolo "The (un)familiar properties of water, their effect on sustaining life and their origin".

Abstract:
Water is arguably a very important material. On the other hand, it shows remarkably puzzling behaviours that make it unique to sustain life as we intend it. We experience some of these behaviours in our everyday life and, therefore, we don’t perceive them as strange —nor important— as they really are. In this talk, I will give an overview of a few of such weird behaviours and I will present the state of the art in our understanding the origin of water anomalous behaviour. Finally, I will give some practical example about how understanding basic science can lead to the development of new technologies.
