Electrodeposited Negative Index Metamaterials with Visible and Near Infrared Response

Negative index metamaterials have revolutionized the field of photonics because of their unconventional electromagnetic properties absent in naturally occurring materials. It remains a challenge however, to achieve strong negative refractive index at optical frequencies over large areas in a device compatible fashion.

Piezoresponse Force Microscopy, a simple method to visualize moiré superlattices

03 August 2020

A recent publication in Nature Nanotechnology in which Massimiliano Stengel, ICREA scientist, and Konstantin Shapovalov, postdoctoral researcher at ICMAB, participated, show how Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM) is an effective tool to visualize and characterize moiré patterns in a wide range of twisted bilayer systems including twisted bilayer graphene. The publication is a collaboration between researchers from Columbia University in USA, the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan, Nanjing University in China, Stony Brook University in USA, the Flatiron Institute in USA and the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona.

Expoquimia hosts Industrial Dialogues webinars joined by ICMAB researcher Nora Ventosa

31 July 2020

The International Meeting for Chemistry Expoquimia hosted the UNPRECEDENTED Industrial Dialogues Webinars, seminars discussing different topics related to the cores of the triennial meeting: circular economy, digitalization, and technology transference. This last topic was covered in one webinar by Nora Ventosa, from the Molecular Nanoscience and Organic Materials (NANOMOL) group. 

Congratulations, Dr. Simona Ricci! New ICMAB graduate!

30 July 2020
Doctor Simona Ricci from the Nanomol Group at ICMAB defended her PhD thesis entitled "Liquid-gated transistors for biosensing applications" on Thursday, 30 July 2020. The PhD thesis was supervised by Marta Mas-Torrent, and the PhD Committee was formed by Teresa Sierra, from ICMA (UNIZAR-CSIC), Núria Crivillers (ICMAB, CSIC) and Carlo Bortolotti from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy.
