Two redox and magnetically active perchlorotriphenylmethyl (PTM) radical units have been connected as end-capping groups to a bis(phenylene)diyne chain through vinylene linkers. Negative and positive charged species have been generated, and the influence of the bridge on their stabilization is discussed.

Simulated microgravity system to synthesize high-quality 2D crystalline materials

A team of researchers demonstrated that 2D porous crystalline molecular frameworks (MOFs) can be grown with excellent control over their morphology and homogeneity by using a custom-made microfluidic device.

This approach recreates on Earth the microgravity environment of laboratories on the International Space Stations.

The 2021 Journal Citation Reports is here! #JCR2021

July 29, 2021
Coverage has been expanded to include journal content com the Arts & Humanities Citation Index, and the Emerging Sources Citation Index. These journals will not have the know Impact Factor (JIF), but will have a new metric for them, the Journal Citation Indicator (JCI). The JCI is a category normalized metric that is calculated for journals in all editions. It measures the citation performance of a journal's articles and reviews against the expected citation rate of the category or catego...

Supervisor Josep Fontcuberta and Doctor Mathieu Mirjolet

Congratulations Dr. Mathieu Mirjolet, new ICMAB Graduate

Doctor Mathieu Mirjolet from the Laboratory of Multifunctional Thin Films and Complex Structures (MULFOX) group at ICMAB, defended his PhD thesis titled "Transparent Conducting Oxides Based on Early Transition Metals: From Electrical and Optical Properties of Epitaxial Thin Films, to Integration in All-Oxide Photoabsorbing Heterostructures." on Friday, 23 July 2021 in an online session. Congrats!

A new theory to explain the transparency of metallic oxides

The electrons of some metal oxides, due to their large effective mass when coupled with the ionic lattice of the material, cannot follow the electric field of light and allow it to pass through the material. Transparent and conductive materials are used in smartphone touch screens and solar panels for photovoltaic energy.

Thermal waves observed in semiconductor materials

A study published in Science Advances reports on the unexpected observation of thermal waves in germanium, a semiconductor material. This phenomenon may allow a significant improvement in the performance of our electronic devices in a near future. The study is led by researchers from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB, CSIC) in collaboration with researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and the University of Cagliari.
