About Us

Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures

SUMAN department has been active in the field of superconducting materials since the discovery of High Temperature superconductors, more than 20 years ago, it has widely contributed to the field of vortex pinning analysis and materials development for more than 15 years and more recently, since about ten years, it has shifted its interests towards the chemical solution approaches to superconducting thin films and coated conductors, due to its high potential in terms of cost-effectiveness for practical applications.

Breakthrough in the ultrafast growth of superconducting films with high performances (PRESS REALISE)

  • The new low-cost, environmentally friendly and scalable method, designed by ICMAB-CSIC researchers, represents a breakthrough in the production of superconducting materials
  • transient liquid phase is formed with the new precursors, from which the superconducting films grow at speeds of 100 nm/s
  • This method is fully compatible with the incorporation of nanoparticles into the superconductor structure, essential for high magnetic field applications in wind generators, electric aviation or particle accelerators

November 20 9h30: Prof. Puig’s invited talk at TADeF 2019 (Faculty of Science, UAB)

The “Anual Meeting of Physic PhD students” (Trobada Anual de Doctorands en Física, TADeF2019) will take place the 20th and 21st of November in the Faculty of Science of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The main objective of this meeting is to provide a big picture of all the research in Physics at the PhD level that is done in the UAB and surrounding institutes. With this aim, the meeting will consist mainly of short talks (10’+3′) from PhD researchers and three keynote talks from international invited speakers of general interest, as well as a poster session.

ICMAB, 3 DEC 2019: European Research Council (ERC) funding opportunities – a 360° overview

ICMAB, 3 DEC 2019: European Research Council (ERC) funding opportunities – a 360° overview

On Tuesday, 3 December 2019, the ICMAB organizes an event to talk and share experirences on ERC projects called “European Research Council (ERC) funding opportunities – a 360° overview”. The event will count with the presence of Nadine Vermorel, from the ERC Executive Agency (ERCEA) and with Lucía Benito, from the CSIC European Program. Five of the ICMAB ERC grantees will talk about their ERC experience from their own point of view. Come and join us, if you want to know more about funding opportunities for these ERC excellent projects!
