 La evolución humana es evolución cultural, y no física o biológica, desde que el “homo sapiens” apareció en la tierra hace casi 200.000 años[1], culminando la evolución biológica de los homínidos. Se tiende a creer que la cultura es solamente cosa de ideas, mas que de materia, por lo que se podría reducir la evolución

The paper is named “From Superhydrophobic- to Superhydrophilic-Patterned Poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-chlorotrifluoroethylene) Architectures as a Novel Platform for Biotechnological Applications” written by Senentxu Lanceros and colleagues and is the cover page of the September edition of “Journal of Polymer Science, Polymer Physics” JPS_PP_2016_cover  

Eduardo Fernandez from BCMaterials has received an Extraordinary Doctoral award for his thesis titled “Thin film magnetoimpedance micro-structures for sensing applications”. The thesis board gives this award basing on the number and quality of the publications originated in the thesis. The award consist on the refund of the thesis tax.  

Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (JMMM) has opened a new section called Critical Focused Issue with the paper tittled “Role of the antiferromagnetic bulk spins in exchange bias“. One of the authors of this paper is Rafael Morales, member of BCMaterials.
