Two ICMAB studies at the ALBA Synchrotron Activity Report 2016
Two Scientific Highlights with the participation of ICMAB researchers are featured in the ALBA Synchrotron Activity Report 2016.
We welcome you to have a look at the two studies:
- Chemical and electrochemical characterization of Nafion containing silver nanoparticles in a stripe-like distribution
RSC Advances 6:9923-9931(2016)
B. Domènech, V. Romero, M.I. Vázquez, M. Avila*, J. Benavente, M. Muñoz and J. Macanás*
The aim of this work was to analyse the potential application of this Nafion containing silve nanoparticles, for example in electrochemical devices, such as Proton Exchange Membranes.
- Emerging diluted ferromagnetism in high-Tc superconductors driven by point defect clusters
Advanced Science 3, 1500295 (2016)
J. Gazquez,*, R. Guzman, R. Mishra, E. Bartolomé, J. Salafranca, C. Magén, M. Varela, M. Coll, A. Palau, S. M. Valvidares, P. Gargiani, E. Pellegrin, J. Herrero-Martin, S. J. Pennycook, S.T. Pantelides, T. Puig, X. Obradors
This study unveils the formation of ferromagnetic clusters embedded within the YBCO superconductor. Superconductivity and ferromagnetism are considered to be naturally exclusive phenomena; however, these results reveal the coexistence of ferromagnetic interactions much closer to high Tc superconductivity than previously suspected, which presents fundamental new physical insights.
