Anna Laromaine and the #Matheroes on TV ¡Qué animal! (La2 RTVE)

On Saturday, 5 October 2019, we could see in the programme ¡Qué animal! from La2 RTVE, the researcher Anna Laromaine, from the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group, talking about the "supermaterial" bacterial cellulose. The programme was about animals with superpowers, so our Matheroes: the supermaterials of the future, were also featured in it! Thank you to all the ¡Qué animal! team!

Superconductors instead of copper for the future circular collider (FCC) at CERN

  • The future circular collider (FCC), with a 100 km circumference ring, will extend the research currently being conducted at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the search for new physics.
  • High-temperature superconductors, such as YBCO, are being studied to be used as coating for the FCC ring instead of copper. Researchers have found that these materials outperform copper by a factor of 40, which would greatly enhance the FCC efficiency and provide big energy savings.
  • The Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group at the ICMAB-CSIC participates in this study as part of a consortium with the ALBA Synchrotron, the IFAE and the UPC.

X-rays find key insights in metal-oxide thin film interfaces

Researchers from the ICMAB-CSIC and ALBA Synchrotron have led a collaborative research, together with the iCN2, the Dept. of Electronics and Biomedical Engineering (UB) and CIC nanoGUNE (Donostia), where they have exploited X-ray absorption spectroscopy at the BOREAS beamline of ALBA for unveiling the optical and spin transport properties of transition metal oxides for photovoltaics and spintronics applications. 

Zsolt Kelemen, #MSCA IF Fellow of the Week!

It's time to meet Zsolt Kelemen, our #MSCA IF Fellow of the Week! Zsolt is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Laboratory of Inorganic Materials and Catalysis group, and he is working in the framework of the Tuning COPs project. Congratulations, Zsolt!
