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?

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    03 June 2019 428 hit(s)
    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
