El aerogenerador que no pierde energía

LA RAZÓN | 13/03/2017 | Eva Martínez Rull

Convertir un aerogenerador de 2MW de potencia en un «molino» superconductor dos veces más ligero y que, sobre todo, no pierda ni un vatio de energía por la disipación de calor. Es lo que ha conseguido un grupo de investigadores del Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona (ICMAB); el Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC); el Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragón (ICMA); el Instituto mixto del CSIC y de la Universidad de Zaragoza (Unizar), y Gamesa Innovation and Technology.

Mildred Dresselhaus, the Queen of Carbon, Dies at 86

THE NEW YORK TIMES | 

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.

El primer molino terrestre superconductor se gesta en Barcelona

EL PERIÓDICO, DOMINGO, 12 DE FEBRERO DEL 2017 MICHELE CATANZARO
El cambio primordial en un molino superconductor está en el generador. “En lugar de cobre y hierro en su interior hay cintas de segunda generación, unos filamentos superconductores”, explica Xavier Obradors, director del Icmab. No solo los filamentos no pierden energía, sino que tampoco se calientan, por lo que no se necesita la maquinaria de enfriamiento que precisan los metales tradicionales.

Eulàlia Pujades Otero

Hello everyone!
My name is Eulàlia and I'm from Rubí (Barcelona). I got my BSc in Chemistry and my MSc in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Research at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I'm going to stay at ICMAB as a PhD student during the following 3 years, in the Solid State Chemistry group under the supervision of Prof. Nieves Casañ-Pastor and Dr. Dino Tonti working in the "electrochemistry, electroactive materials - synthesis, doping, energy storage and bio" research line.
In my spare time I love travelling abroad, listening to music and playing it (I play the piano and the flute since I was a child) and I also love resolving puzzles and enigmas (I'm an "escape room" addict!!! You can ask me for more information about this kind of games :P).
I'm really looking forward to meet you all and share good moments and experiences!!! I'll see you soon in ICMAB :)

The Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) will coordinate the first MSCA-COFUND programme awarded to CSIC
