On April 17th, Prof Elvira Fortunato, from CENIMAT, visited the ICN2 and offered a talk about the great potential that metal oxides have in the future of electronics and to develop new and disruptive applications. The speaker was introduced by ICN2 Group Leader and ICREA Prof Arben Merkoçi who remarked the highlights of her career.
Hospitals and biomedical related initiatives gathered at ICN2 to discuss about the potential of nanotechnology in the field of biomedicine, with a special emphasis on biosensors. The workshop, organised as part of the Biosensors B30 project, explored the opportunities of establishing shared biosensor projects.
ICREA Research Prof Daniel Maspoch, Group Leader of the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry & Materials, introduced Dr. Javier García Martínez, director of the Nanotechnology Laboratory at the University of Alacant and cofounder of Rive Technology Inc. (Boston, MA). The event, held on April 15 at the Barcelona City Hall, was the inaugural conference of the NOVUM Program.
A work in Advanced Functional Materials shows how spray-drying prepared MOF nanoparticles containing lanthanide metals may be used as nanothermometers operative over a wide range of temperatures, in particular, in the cryogenic range. The work was coordinated from the University of Aveiro (Portugal) and participated by Ramón y Cajal Researcher Dr Inhar Imaz and ICREA Research Prof Daniel Maspoch from the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry & Materials Group.
