On Thursday 11 October 2018, the programme "Els Matins de TV3", directed by Lídia Heredia, interviewed researcher Teresa Puig about the superconducting materials, in their section devoted to science, and presented by Daniel Arbós. The section, of more than 18 minutes long, explains what superconducting materials are, what are their main applications, and shows the levitation experiment.
The SoftLab, run by Amable Bernabé, has hosted from Monday, 8 October, to Wednesday, 10 October a course on "Characterization techniques for particulate matter". The course has counted with 12 participants from different CSIC centers (including ICMAB, IBM-CNM, ICM, IQAC...) and has introduced the participants to different techniques to characterize nanoparticles, including the basic fundamentals, sample preparation, practical examples and results interpretation.
On Thursday, 18 October, the inaugural session to inaugurate the RACAB academic course 2018-2019 will be given by Prof. Xavier Obradors, which will present the report entitled "Els nanomaterials per a la transició energètica" (Nanomaterials for the energetic transition). The conference will take place at the RACAB at 7 pm.
