Fotonica in Gioco
è un concorso rivolto agli studenti delle Scuole Superiori Italiane ed ha come scopo la creazione di un gioco da tavolo originale sulla luce e sulla fotonica. E' organizzato dall'Istituto di Fotonica e Nanotecnologie del CNR nell'ambito del progetto Europeo Photonics4All.
Sabato 1 ottobre 2016 si terrà la premiazione finale a Venezia in occasione del prestigioso Premio Archimede per inventori di giochi da tavolo.
Al concorso hanno partecipato 426 studenti e 37 insegnanti provenienti da 16 città italiane, con la presentazione di 28 bellissimi giochi da tavolo originali.

An international research team (Politecnico di Milano, Università di Pisa, Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Italian National Research Council, University of Fayoum, Politecnico di Torino, XGLab Italian company) documents the meteoritic origin of the iron of the dagger blade belonging to the ancient Egyptian King Tutankhamun (14th C B.C.E). This solves a longstanding heated debate among scholars since its discovery in the wrapping of the king's mummy in 1925, by archaeologist Howard Carter. As reported in a paper published in Meteoritics and Planetary Science, geochemical analysis performed in December 2014 through non-invasive X-ray fluorescence spectrometry reveals that the iron dagger blade, today on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, contains nickel (10 wt%) and cobalt (0.6 wt%) in concentrations characteristically observed in iron meteorites. The study confirms that ancient Egyptians attributed great value to meteoritic iron for the production of precious objects, and the high manufacturing quality of Tutankhamun’s dagger blade is evidence of significant mastery of ironworking already in Tutankhamun’s time.
Research was funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Egyptian Ministry of Scientific Research.
Amongst the others, the research has been performed by Austin Nevin, researcher at CNR-IFN, expert of spectroscopic analysis of ancient materials.
The research has been published on the international journal "Meteoritics and Planetary Science"
