The UAB Campus hosts the First Scientific Meeting of Students organized by the Barcelona Nanotechnology Cluster – Bellaterra. Over one hundred students participate in the meeting and have the opportunity to share experience and research from different nanoscience areas.
Discover all you need to know about Graphene in the interview that ICN2 made to Luigi Colombo when he visited our Institute.
The initiative has the support of the Catalan Government through ACCIÓ and was presented today in front of representatives of the Catalan companies and organizations that made the Cluster possible. The ICN2 is part of the Governing Board and the ICMAB is too among the Cluster members.
Combining state-of-the-art realistic atomistic modelling and experiments, a paper in ACS Nano describes how thermal conductivity of ultrathin silicon membranes is controlled to large extent by the structure and the chemical composition of their surface. ICN2 participated in the research, mainly funded by the European project MERGING, through the Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures (P2N) Group, led by ICREA Research Prof. Clivia Sotomayor-Torres.
