A study published in Science Advances reports on the unexpected observation of thermal waves in germanium, a semiconductor material. This phenomenon may allow a significant improvement in the performance of our electronic devices in a near future. The study is led by researchers from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB, CSIC) in collaboration with researchers from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, and the University of Cagliari.
The instrument, developed in the framework of the European project KardiaTool, contains a biosensor chip developed in the Clean Room of the IMB-CNM, and functionalized magnetic nanoparticles synthesized at ICMAB, key to detect the biomarkers found in saliva. It is a quick Point-of-Care saliva test that does not require specialized personnel.

The presentation of the grants took place on 18 April 2018 at Palau Macaya (Barcelona). A common objective of all the awarded projects is to face some of the challenges of the XXI century: organs on a chip to fight cancer, polymers against antibiotic resistance, in vitro biologic 3D ears, quantic computers for data processing, or new materials to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic cells, to name a few. This latter is the project from Dr. Ignasi Fina, from the MULFOX group at ICMAB, who will work together with Dr. Rafael Jaramillo, at MIT.
Researchers from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), and the National University of Córdoba (Argentina), in collaboration with researchers of the ALBA Synchrotron, have identified a mineral in the region of Córdoba (Argentina), until now only observed in meteorites

Ferran Macià, from the MULFOX group, was at the programme on May 9, 2018, in the section "The materials of the future" to talk about neuromorphic computing.
Samsung ha suspès la venda del Galaxy Note 7 a tot el món. Després dels nous casos d’incendi de bateries d’aquest model, ahir ja va aturar la producció per segona vegada i, ara, n’han tornat a aturar les vendes. Ho justifiquen per garantir la seguretat dels usuaris.
"A enerxía que chega do sol á terra nunha hora é abonda como para cubrir as necesidades enerxéticas de toda a humanidade durante un ano. Un dos motivos de por que non temos os nosos tellados inzados de paneis solares fotovoltaicos é que son caros en comparación con outras fontes de enerxía. Pero, que pasaría se aparecese unha nova tecnoloxía de fabricación de paneis solares que abaratase 10 veces o seu prezo? Nisto esta a traballar o noso invitado desta semana, Mariano Campoy, que é científico titular do CSIC no Instituto de Ciencia de Materiais de Barcelona."
Xavier Martí (CEO, IGSresearch) i Ignasi Fina (post-Doc, Max Planck Sociaty), ambdós ex-membres de l’ICMAB on varen fer la tesi en el grup del Prof. Fontcuberta, parlen sobre el camí que han de recorrer els materials des del laboratori fins a integrar-los en el nou concepte de SmartCity que IGSresearch té al cap.
