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.
