On 25 July 2019 they presented their final projects: Benet Fité did a LabView programme to proof that the superconducting materials synthesis process performed at the ICMAB is 100 times than the conventional processes, Carla París presented the research on a new type of perovskites for photovoltaic energy, and Teresa Echevarría presented a video on the process to synthesize MOFs with supercritical carbon dioxide. Benet and Carla will also do their Final Year Project with us.
"Thanks to everyone for making the most out of this short insight into the research world" said Benet Fité after his presentation. And he added "What I've learnt about research, is that you've got to be patient"
Carla París also commented this "When you start something, you never know how it's going to end. I expected to go much faster, but the precursor wouldn't dissolve with the solvents... so the process was longer than expected"
And Teresa Echevarría added "It was supercool to work with supercritical carbon dioxide, but it is true that sometimes you have to wait a lot of time for the experiments to happen. So yes, patience is needed!"
Thank you to Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera for this opportunity, and thank you to the researchers Mariona Coll, Teresa Puig, and Ana M. López-Periago, and their research groups, for hosting them here!
