Las máquinas más pequeñas del mundo ganan el Nobel de Química 2016

La Real Academia de las Ciencias de Suecia ha concedido hoy el premio Nobel de Química al francés Jean-Pierre Sauvage, al británico Fraser Stoddart y al holandés Bernard Feringa por "diseñar y producir máquinas moleculares". Los investigadores han desarrollado moléculas con movimientos controlables, que pueden llevar a cabo tareas cuando se les proporciona energía. El trabajo de los tres "demuestra cómo la miniaturización de la tecnología puede conducir a una revolución", según ha indicado la Academia en un comunicado. "Los galardonados con el Nobel de Química de 2016 han miniaturizado máquinas y han llevado la química a una nueva dimensión", añade la nota.

Mildred Dresselhaus, the Queen of Carbon, Dies at 86


Dr. Dresselhaus used resonant magnetic fields and lasers to map out the electronic energy structure of carbon. She investigated the traits that emerge when carbon is interwoven with other materials: Stitch in some alkali metals, for example, and carbon can become a superconductor, in which an electric current meets virtually no resistance.

Un grupo de científicos explica las dificultades y precariedades en el inicio de una carrera investigadora en el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)

Ser Científico Titular en el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) requiere dos pasos críticos: primero, pasar una oposición pública muy competitiva (la cual supone un muro infranqueable para muchos científicos, debido al escaso número de plazas ofertadas) y segundo, pero no menos importante, conseguir apoyo para iniciar una nueva línea de investigación...
