“NANOingeniería de ÓXIdos para el mayor aprovechamiento de la energía SOLar usando rutas no convencionales (NANOXISOL)” (Oxides nanoengineering for improvement of photovoltaic efficiency using non-conventional routes) proposed by Ignasi Fina has been awarded by Comfuturo program in its second edition.
Our colleague Ignasi Fina got the prestigious Ramon y Cajal 5 years contract. Congratulations !
MULFOX group has been awarded with a MIT-Spain “La Caixa” Foundation Seed Fund. In a press release that took place on 18th April at Palau Macaya (Barcelona), the PI of the project (Ignasi Fina) was interviewed by local radio, and he commented on the new investigations on the use of semiconducting ferroelectrics for photoelectric applications that the funded project proposes. We hope fruitful collaboration with MIT.

The meeting is going to be the last in a series of meetings organized by the COST Action TO-BE (for Towards Oxide-Based Electronics). It aims to network researchers working in the field of the science and technology of transition-metal oxides and, to help them sharing their expertise, defining future strategies, and pursuing jointly funding opportunities.
Participation at the meeting is open to scientists, both from the public research sector and from the private sector. It is NOT restricted to the members of the Action. Non-EU participants are also very welcome to attend. One of the actions undertaken by TO-BE is to promote building a Roadmap “Towards Oxide Electronics” that we expect releasing early 2018. The forthcoming TO-BE Spring Meeting would be the opportunity for contributors to present their views on different aspects of oxide electronics.
The meeting will feature invited presentations delivered by contributors to the Roadmap, as well as flash and poster contributions.
Submission of abstracts will be open on 1st December 2017. Please submit your work by 1st January 2018.

Thanks to the support of the COST TO-BE Action, participation is free of charge. However, registration is necessary. See:
We sincerely hope that you will be able to attend the COST TO-BE Spring Meeting 2018 and we look forward to seeing you in March 2018
Finally, just after the COST TO-BE Spring Meeting 2018, the COST organized school on “Oxide-based Electronic Technologies” (15th-17th March) will be held at the same place (Hotel Eden Roc, Sant Feliu de Guíxols). Information will be posted soon.
Mariona Coll and Josep Fontcuberta
Oxides flight high. Oxide-based non-volatile memories, fabricated and integrated by our colleague Pablo Levy and his team in CNEA (Buenos Aires), were successfully launched to space on 2th-02-2018 and are now orbiting the Earth. Congratulations !
Hi! I’m Agustin, and I’m a PhD student from Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is my first time in Barcelona. I’m going to be here for one month and I will learn how to characterize ferroelectric thin films with the group of Josep Fontcuberta. In my free time I like playing videogames, reading a lot of books and spending time with my girlfriend and my friends.
Great physicists: Sergio Gonzalez and Sara Ramió, have just enrolled our group. They will work on ferroelectric materials with Ignasi Fina.
All the best for them!
