Farewell to Carlos

Last week we said goodbye to Carlos Moya, who has worked as a postdoc during one year at the N&N group. To farewell him, we organized a dinner in Barcelona! We wish all the best to Carlos, he will continue with his research career at his former group, in the University of Barcelona. See you soon Carlos! 

Carlos and Miquel attended a TEM course


Miquel in the TEM course

Miquel Torras and Carlos Moya attended the Transmission Electronic Microscopy (TEM) course given by UAB Microscopy service. During this training they learned fundamentals and modes of electronic microscopy. They also focused on the preparation of both materials and life science samples. In practical seasons, they learned how to align an electronic microscope for low and high resolution imaging. In addition, they did diffraction mode and also Electronic Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS).
