The properties of graphene improve nanobiosensors for biomedical, environmental and security applications
Casa Convalescencia in Barcelona hosted the ICREA Workshop on Graphene Nanobiosensors on May 25th-26th, where international experts of the state-of-the-art in graphene nanobiosensors applications will meet. The integration of graphene in biosensor systems will lead to high sensitive, more selective and cost-effective devices. Prof Konstantin Novoselov, Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010, was among the participants of the meeting and will offer an ICN2 seminar in the UAB Campus on Wednesday May the 27th.
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.
