A work published in Physical Review Letters, with ICREA Prof Josep Nogués, Group Leader at ICN2, as its last author, explains how an Antiferromagnetic Proximity Effect makes the Magnetic Stabilization possible above 400 K (126.85 degrees Celsius). This achievement might have crucial implications for ultrahigh density recording among other applications.
ICN2 researchers have developed a new type of fluids with graphene and other carbon nanoparticles for energy storage in flow-cells. The nanofluids can be used in applications that require high power and medium energy densities.
An international team led by the ICREA Prof Arben Merkoçi has just developed new sensing platforms based on bacterial cellulose nanopaper. These novel platforms are simple, low cost and easy to produce and present outstanding properties that make them ideal for optical (bio)sensing applications. The results have been reported in ACS Nano.
The appointment of the Director marks the launch of the new institute, a scientific initiative involving CRG, ICIQ, ICN2, ICFO, IFAE and IRB Barcelona. As of September, she will be responsible for promoting interdisciplinary research strategies, tech transfer, and international graduate training with the six centres that compose the Institute.
