A year in review: ICMAB most cited articles of 2018

After another year, we look back and see how was this year's scientific research. More than 200 articles, which makes a total of more than 5,200 publications (remember that we reached the 5,000 this last February?) and more than 140,000 citations since the Institue's foundation, in 1986, which makes an average of more than 13,300 citations per year, and 27 citations per article.

The most cited articles of 2018 are shown in this post. Do you want to know which ones are they?

A year in review: ICMAB Top 10 Journals of 2018

During 2018, ICMAB researchers have written more than 200 articles in international peer-review science journals of various disciplines: chemistry, physics, materials, nanotechnology, photonics, energy, superconductivity, biochemistry, etc. We have selected in this post the journals with the highest Impact Factor (IF) in which the researchers have published an article. Do you want to know which they are?

Six-year old "scientists" from Sabadell enjoy the visit at ICMAB!

On Tuesday, 27 November 2018, we had a very special visit in our Institute: "the scientists" class formed by 24 six-year old students from "La Trama" school in Sabadell visited us. It was a fantastic visit. All the kids were very happy to become real scientists for a day, and to visit the laboratories, the clean room, the glove boxes, the microscopes and even to perform an X-ray diffraction experiment to discover what is sand made of.

Students from Lleida visit the ICMAB and the Matheroes!

On Thursday 25 October, the students from 2n BTX from the "Col·legi Maristes de Montserrat" (Lleida) took the bus and came to our center to spend an afternoon learning about nanotechnology and supermaterials! They could enjoy the visit of the "Matheroes" exhibition, a talk from one of our researchers, and a visit to our installations.

Christmas Lecture at ICMAB: "Science Dissemination 2.0: Social Media for Researchers" by Xavier Lasauca (Wed, 19 Dec 2018)

This year, to celebrate Christmas, on Wednesday, December 19 2018 at 12 pm, we will have with us Xavier Lasauca, R+D Knowledge and Information Systems Manager at the DGR (Secretary of Universities and Research, Department of Business and Knowledge of the Catalan Government). Xavier will give a Christmas Lecture entitled "Science Dissemination 2.0: Social Media for Researchers", in which he will summarise the benefits which can be gained from the use of social media to support research activities. 

After the seminar, there will be the traditional Christmas Concert by the ICMAB choir and the Christmas Buffet for all our staff.

UB, 4 Feb 2019: Jornada d'Investigadors Predoctorals Interdisciplinària

The 7th edition of the Interdisciplinary Meeting of Predoctoral Researchers (JIPI) will take place on Monday, 4 February 2019. The JIPI has become a meeting point for all predoctoral researchers in Catalonia. It offers the possibility to meet researchers of many other fields, learn about their interests and put ideas in common. It also aims at answering some unpleasant questions such as: Who might be interested in my research? Is it useful? What can I do after the PhD? Are you going to miss it?

A new iron oxide polymorph found at high pressures

  • Researchers at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility have characterized the structural, electronic and magnetic behavior of nanoparticles of a rare phase of iron oxide, the epsilon phase, under extreme pressure conditions, emulating the conditions of the interior of the Earth.
  • The study, published in Nature Communications, concludes that the presence of this rare phase of iron oxide in the inner Earth is possible, and that under these conditions there is a new iron oxide phase, epsilon prime, with magnetic properties radically different from those known so far.
