Mildred Dresselhaus, the Queen of Carbon, Dies at 86

THE NEW YORK TIMES | 

Dr. Dresselhaus used resonant magnetic fields and lasers to map out the electronic energy structure of carbon. She investigated the traits that emerge when carbon is interwoven with other materials: Stitch in some alkali metals, for example, and carbon can become a superconductor, in which an electric current meets virtually no resistance.

El primer molino terrestre superconductor se gesta en Barcelona

EL PERIÓDICO, DOMINGO, 12 DE FEBRERO DEL 2017 MICHELE CATANZARO
El cambio primordial en un molino superconductor está en el generador. “En lugar de cobre y hierro en su interior hay cintas de segunda generación, unos filamentos superconductores”, explica Xavier Obradors, director del Icmab. No solo los filamentos no pierden energía, sino que tampoco se calientan, por lo que no se necesita la maquinaria de enfriamiento que precisan los metales tradicionales.

Eulàlia Pujades Otero

Hello everyone!
My name is Eulàlia and I'm from Rubí (Barcelona). I got my BSc in Chemistry and my MSc in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Research at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I'm going to stay at ICMAB as a PhD student during the following 3 years, in the Solid State Chemistry group under the supervision of Prof. Nieves Casañ-Pastor and Dr. Dino Tonti working in the "electrochemistry, electroactive materials - synthesis, doping, energy storage and bio" research line.
In my spare time I love travelling abroad, listening to music and playing it (I play the piano and the flute since I was a child) and I also love resolving puzzles and enigmas (I'm an "escape room" addict!!! You can ask me for more information about this kind of games :P).
I'm really looking forward to meet you all and share good moments and experiences!!! I'll see you soon in ICMAB :)

The Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) will coordinate the first MSCA-COFUND programme awarded to CSIC

  • The doctoral fellowship programme DOC-FAM will allow the mobility of 22 PhD students in the field of functional advanced materials.
  • ICMAB-CSIC, IMB-CNM-CSIC, ICN2, IREC and ALBA Synchrotron will host these fellows within a period of 5 years.
  • The total budget of the programme is 3.453.120€, of which 50% will be covered by the EC grant..

新年快乐!

This year, Chinese New Year - The Year of the Rooster - begins on Saturday January 28 and lasts until February 15th, 2018. The new year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The festivities usually start the day before the New Year and continue until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the new year. Each Chinese New Year is characterised by one of 12 animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.The Chinese zodiac is divided into 12 blocks (or houses) just like its western counterpart, but with the major difference being that each house has a time-length of one year instead of one month.

Bernat Meseguer

Hello there!

My name is Bernat and I'm from Terrassa, near Barcelona. I'm on my last year of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).

I'm currently working in a project involving lithium-oxygen batteries with carbon electrodes based on natural materials, under the supervision of Dr. Dino Tonti here at ICMAB; a very valuable experience which will form part of the final project for my degree.

My hobbies include mountaineering, reading, playing the guitar, and playing sports in general. I look forward to working with you!

GENERA 2017, Feria Internacional de Energía y Medioambiente, incluye un proyecto del ICMAB entre los 14 que destaca por su aportación al desarrollo de las renovables y la eficiencia energética en España

Ocho décadas después, el hidrógeno se hace metal

Es el átomo más simple que existe. Está en el agua y en gran cantidad de compuestos químicos. Representa la mayor parte de la materia visible del universo y, en la Tierra, se suele encontrar por partida doble: dos átomos que forman una molécula de gas. De él se sabe mucho pero quedan interrogantes. Esta semana, una de las preguntas se ha aclarado: enfriando y apretando mucho sus moléculas, el hidrógeno se hace metal. Es decir, probablemente es capaz de conducir la electricidad y el calor.
