December 18th: OXOLUTIA’s new location inauguration + SUMAN’s Christmas lunch

Yesterday, SUMAN group inaugurate OXOLUTIA’s new industrial site at Barberà del Vallès.

The group enjoyed the lab tour carried out by Roxana Vland and the CEO (Albert Calleja)’s talk entitled  “From lab to fab: the OXOLUTIA case”. The people was very participative and put a lot of questions!

After the visit, we celebrated the traditional SUMAN’s Christmas lunch. 

December 13th-15th: Prof. Teresa Puig and Alex Stangl at ISS17

Last week, Prof. Teresa Puig and our PhD student, Alexander Stangl, attended to the 30th International Symposium on Superconductivity held at IINO HALL&CONFERENCE CENTER in Tokyo, Japan on December 13-1.

Prof. Teresa Puig presented an invited lecture entitled: “Progress in low cost chemical solution Nanocomposite YBa2Cu3O7-x coated conductors” and Alexander Stanl an oral presentation entitled: “Study of oxygen exchange kinetics of YBa2Cu3O7-δ films to achieve high carrier concentration”


The superconducting materials of the EUROTAPES European project at Catalunya Informació

The main objectives and results of the EUROTAPES European project are featured in the Catalunya Informació radio program “Som com som: un espai d’innovació i talent” with Purificació Barceló. Prof. Xavier Obradors and Prof. Teresa Puig explain some of the main features of the project:


 “Un dels objectius del projecte és fer passar molt corrent per les cintes superconductores (poden fer passar 100 vegades més de corrent que un fil de coure), i un altre, disminuir-ne el cost de producció” (Prof. Xavier Obradors)



“En el nou accelerador que es vol construir al CERN, s’utilitzarien aquestes cintes per recobrir tot l’anell i així absorbir la radiació addicional generada per les partícules accelerades” (Prof. Teresa Puig)

The EUROTAPES European project, coordinated by ICMAB-CSIC, had a budget of nearly 20 M€ for 5 years, and more than 20 partners. The results were presented this last March 2017 in Barcelona
