ICMAB Nanoexperts joined with schools to celebrate the closing event of this year’s Nanoinventum project
The research carried out by Gerard Tobías and Judith Guasch and their respective teams, at the new issue of "CSIC Investiga".
The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986.
This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).
Scientists and researchers showed experiments and gave talks through the streets of Barcelona last Sunday as the last leg of the Biennal Ciutat i Ciència de Barcelona.

Pablo Guardia, Ramón y Cajal researcher at ICMAB, participated on 26 May 2021 at the "Vermú de nanociencia" organized in the framework of the 10alamenos9 Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Festival.
ICMAB is contributing with two activities on the Barcelona Festa de la Ciència, on June 13, in front of the sea, in the Barceloneta area. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència takes place during that same week.
An event to consider the potentials and limitations of knowledge. The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència introduces science to the social debate, approaching society through several lenses, like the advancements that define the future, the ethical implications of science, the link between science and art, sociology, politics, gender equality, sustainability, and more.
The Biennal Ciutat i Ciència will take place between 8 and 13 June. During the whole week there are many activities, both presential and online, that you can join. Take a look at the programme and enjoy science!

The 10alamenos9 Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Festival at UAB Campus will take place on 22 April 2021 in an online format with UAB Nanoscience Alumni and Research Centers.
ICMAB Researcher Ferran Vallès covers the fundamentals of superconductivity in this new video. In particular, the quantum levitation phenomenon.
ICMAB researchers collaborate in this project that is trying to create scientific vocations by teaching nanoscience to primary school kids.
How has the lockdown, restrictions, and the work from home lifestyle affected our research?
News came from China and Italy, about a fast spreading virus that required strict lockdowns to avoid its spread. It was clear than sooner, rather than later, actions would have to be taken everywhere else.
We visited the Institut Escola Arts in Barcelona to show them some of the impressive properties of materials!
The "LabEnClass" project, which aimed at bringing the research in materials for energy from the labs to the classrooms, finishes with great success: it has reached 20 schools and 500 primary and secondary school students, who discovered the innovative and sustainable materials for photovoltaics and the properties of light.
Even if we cannot go to schools face-to-face, ICMAB researchers have "visited" some schools using online platforms during these last months. For us it is important to still go to schools, to knock down the walls between young students and scientists, "for most of them it is the first time they meet someone who works as a researcher" says Judit Morlà Folch, one of the researchers who has participated.
Photoenergy, Superconductor, Magnon, ElectroWoman and BioNanoCapsule, our 5 Matheroes, are busy this Christmas! Do you want to join them? You can go see the exhibition and do some experiments, or you can rescue them from the Dark Squad in the new Virtual Escape!
Concepció Rovira, ICMAB researcher at the Nanomol Group, gave on Thursday, 26 November 2020, a Conference entitled "Can we open a new era of electronics with the power of molecules" in the framework of the Science Thursdays at IEC (Institut d'Estudis Catalans). The talk is now available on the IEC Youtube Channel.
The 18th of November is the date chosen to highlight the discriminations that people in the LGBT+ collective suffer in the field of science and a day to show the support to this community. In face of this discrimination, members of the PRISMA association offer 10 measures that we can apply to help fight prejudice and lessen its consequences.
The Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting (NANOPTO) research group, which focuses on producing and characterizing advanced semiconducting structures for optoelectronics and energy-related and sensing devices, has started using one the most popular techniques for scientific outreach: YouTube!
On 27 October 2020, to celebrate the Open Access Week, we hosted an Online Seminar by Alejandro Santos, our Librarian and Documentalist, who explained us the main aspects of Open Access.
Ashley Black, ICMAB researcher, delivers on 9 November 2020 at 7 pm the online conference entitled "How to face the climate emergency: electric mobility, a solution for the cities?", in the framework of the Barcelona Libraries confernce cycle and the Science Week 2020.
The OPTOFEM 2020 School on Optically Controlled Ferroelectric Memristors held its first edition in an online format on 22-23 October 2020. The ICMAB school was a huge success, and counted with more than 85 participants from 18 countries around the world, who attended more than 16 hours of lectures on the topic.
This year Expominer will not take place as we know it, in Fira Barcelona. However, there will be a selection of online talks and workshops under the name MinerMat2020, that will be online during the Science Week (Setmana de la Ciència).
Our "Manuel Cardona" Library has acquired 11 new scientific books for all our staff! The books are about some of the main topics of our research: nanotechnology, polymer science, nanomaterials processing and characterization, solid-state NMR, functional materials, voltammetry, electrochemical systems, modern condensed matter physics, pharmaceutical crystals, crystal growth and organic semiconductors. Take a look at the list below!
Thursday, 22 October 2020, at 7 pm, there will be a public session for the admission of the elected academic Dr. Enric Canadell Casanova, ICMAB researcher, who will read his welcoming report entitled: "Solid conductors of low dimensionality", and will be answered on behalf of the corporation by the academic Excm. Mr. Santiago Olivella i Nel·lo.
SusChem is the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry. It is a forum that brings together industry, academia, policy makers and the wider society.

Rosa Palacín was invited in a roundtable about "Chemistry and Energy", in which she talked about new battery technolgies linked with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
Happy Nanotechnology Day! To celebrate it and to raise awareness of nanotechnology, we have created a short video that features our transmission and scanning electron microscopes (TEM and SEM), so you can see what the human eye cannot see. There is plenty of room at the bottom!
Face masks are still one of the key factors helping us face the current COVID-19 pandemic, and have been part of the conversation since the first responses to the virus started to appear. The other key factor is physical distancing. In this Online ICMAB Seminar, Jan Grzelak, from the Nanoparticles & Nanocomposites (NN) Group, presents the current knowledge we have on the materials used to create the masks and their reusability.
