Scientific Highlights

Ferroelectric (Hf,Zr,La)O2 films

T. Song, S. Estandía, I. Fina, F. Sánchez
The impact of La, Zr and Hf content on the crystal phases and ferroelectric and dielectric properties of (Hf,Zr,La)O2 has been determined by investigating epitaxial films. The polarization of La-doped Hf1-xZrxO2 films strongly depends on La and Zr content, with remanent polarization ranging from 0 to about 30 µC/cm2. The optimal La doping in Hf1-xZrxO2 increases from 0% to 2–5% for decreasing the Zr content from 100% (ZrO2) to 0% (HfO2).

Severo Ochoa School: Angle Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy #ARPES2023

Welcome to ARPES 2023, our Severo Ochoa School on Angle Resolved Photoemision Spectroscopy (ARPES): from fundamentals to the heart of condensed matter.

A school on photoelectron spectroscopy for beginners, organized by ICMAB-CSIC with the collaboration of ALBA Synchrotron, on 6-7 February 2023. 

In the era of Quantum Technologies, understanding and mapping electronic excitations has proved to be instrumental to identify emerging properties of matter. Angle Resolved Photoemission Spectroscopy (ARPES) is a major tool to inspect the intricate playground of charge-spin lattice interactions and how they affect the properties of the electronic degrees of freedom.

Happy Birthday! CSIC in Catalonia celebrates its 80th anniversary

December 09, 2022
Eighty years ago, in November 1942, the presence and activities of the CSIC in Catalonia began. It was through the signature that gave rise to the official creation of the Barcelona Delegation of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), the first to be constituted as such in Spain. To commemorate this anniversary, a ceremony was held on Friday, 25 Nov 2022, at the Delegation in Barcelona, with the attendance of the Secretary General for Science Policy, Raquel Yotti, the Pr...
