CCD BV I photometry is presented for 7 previously unstudied star clusters projected toward the inner side of the Galaxy: Trumpler 23, Lynga 3, Collinder 307, Ruprecht 134, ESO552SC16, AL 5 and Kronberger 3. Color magnitude diagrams of the cluster regions allow us to conclude that Lynga 3 and ESO552SC16, are not clusters , but groups of bright stars probably(More)
Pt/α-Fe2O3 nanocomposites were synthesized on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) substrates by a sequential plasma enhanced-chemical vapor deposition (PE-CVD)/radio frequency (RF) sputtering approach, tailoring the overall Pt content as a function of sputtering time. The chemico-physical properties of the as-prepared systems were extensively investigated by(More)
Iron oxide is a key multi-functional material in many different fields of modern technology. The β-Fe(2)O(3) cubic phase, one of the least studied Fe-O systems, was obtained by Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) using for the first time a Fe(II) β-diketonate diamine complex, Fe(hfa)(2)·TMEDA, as the molecular source (hfa =(More)

Context. The census of Galactic globular clusters (GCs) is still incomplete, and about ten new objects are supposed to await discovery, hidden behind the crowded and reddened regions of the Galactic bulge and disk. Aims. We investigated the nature of three new GC candidates, discovered in the frames collected by the Vista Variables in the Via Lactea (VVV)(More)
Relying on U,B imagery at the Italian Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG), we report here the discovery of a sample of 13 new UV-bright post-HB candidate stars in the field of the galactic open cluster NGC 6791. Owing to its super-solar metal content ([Fe/H] ∼ > 0.2 dex) and estimated age (t ∼ > 8 Gyr), this cluster represents the nearest and ideal stellar(More)
