Premio Nobel de Física 2016 para estudios sobre la materia en el mundo cuántico

El Premio Nobel de Física 2016 ha sido concedido, ex aequo, a David J. Thouless, por un lado, y a F. Duncan Haldane M. y J. Michael Kosterlitz, por otra, por revelar los "secretos exóticos de la materia". En el fallo se destaca que el galardón se les concede "por los descubrimientos teóricos de las transiciones de fase topológica y fases topológicas de la materia". Las transiciones de fase suceden cuando la materia cambia de fase, como cuando el hielo se derrite y se convierte en agua o el agua se evapora.

    The Nanotechnology Day (#NationalNanoDay) is an annual celebration created in the US featuring a series of community-led events and activities on or around October 9 to help raise awareness of nanotechnology, how it is currently used in products that enrich our daily lives, and the challenges and opportunities it holds for the future. This date, 10/9, pays homage to the nanometer scale, 10–9 meters.
  • The Severo Ochoa call in the press - What is excellence in research?

    Following the provisional resolution of this year's Severo Ochoa Centers of Excellence call, there has been a hustle and bustle in the press and in the social networks regarding the criteria of excellence of the Severo Ochoa programme, and the fact that the ICIQ (Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia) is not within the selected members. 
  • Peter Grünberg, an inspiration for many magnetic ICMABers: from spinwaves to GMR

    "Peter Grünberg was one of the first physicists to understand the potential of nascent nanotechnologies for fundamental research. He discovered giant magnetoresistance, or GMR: a large change in electrical resistance induced by a small magnetic field in stacks of ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers." says Albert Fert* in Peter Grünberg's Obituary in Nature.
