The choice for energy-efficient technologies is not a matter of price choice but it is slowly turning into a matter of heat. A work recently published in Nature’s Scientific Reports suggests devices fabricated directly on Silicon with magnetic tunnel junctions governed by electric pulses, which means without current and minimizing the problem of overheating.
Encapsulated bacteriophages are more resistant to the stomach low pH and increase their residence time in the intestinal tract of broilers. The research, published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology, was conducted jointly by the UAB Group of Molecular Microbiology, led by Dr Montserrat Llagostera, and the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group, led by ICREA Professor Daniel Maspoch.
The Llotja de Mar de Barcelona hosted today the IX edition of the Industrial Applications of Nanotechnology (AIN). ICN2, the Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón (INA) and LEITAT, together with the Cambra de Comerç de Barcelona, celebrated this yearly event in a very friendly and constructive environment.
On September 2015, Prof. Jose A. Garrido joined ICN2 together with a brand new group: Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices. The team will focus on material science and technology of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene and other 2D materials. With a transversal approach, they will work towards the development of technological applications of these materials, reinforcing the strong profile of ICN2 in this key expertise area.
