El Laboratori de la Neu és un projecte conjunt entre l'ICMAB-CSIC, Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) i l’empresa TechnoAlpin, líder en tecnologia d’innivació. Compta també amb el suport financer dels fons Next Generation EU, atorgat per l'Agencia Estatal de Investigación. Aquest projecte pioner al món té com a objectiu principal estudiar l’aplicació d’una nova tecnologia per a produir neu d’una manera més sostenible, amb menys temps, utilitzant menys aigua i amb menys energia. Desenvolupada amb èxit en laboratori pel Dr. Albert Verdaguer, científic titular a l’ICMAB, i l’equip de TechnoAlpin mitjançant l’aplicació de les últimes tècniques de producció amb equip tecnològicament innovadors, les proves es traslladaran ara a estacions d’FGC Turisme en condicions i entorn reals.
Researchers at the UAB and ICMAB-CSIC have succeeded in bringing wireless technology to the fundamental level of magnetic devices. The emergence and control of magnetic properties in cobalt nitride layers (initially non-magnetic) by voltage, without connecting the sample to electrical wiring, published in Nature Communications, represents a paradigm shift that can facilitate the creation of magnetic nanorobots for biomedicine and computing systems where basic information management processes do not require wiring.
