El pasado jueves 14 de junio, alumnos de 4° de la ESO de diversificación curricular del IES Bertendona han visitado las instalaciones de BCMaterials. Esta actividad se enmarca dentro del proyecto de divulgación científica Zientziaz Blai organizado por la asociación LOGOS elkartea (www.crystalclear.es). El objetivo de esta iniciativa ha sido acercar la cultura científica a

BCMaterials welcomes the new students within the Summer Internships Program 2018. They will spend two months with us doing research on innovative and smart materials. Thanks for working with us and enjoy your interesting time at BCM!        

BCMaterials at BIEMH

Wednesday, 23 May 2018 by

From May 28th to June 1st, the 30th edition of Bienal Española de Máquina Herramienta (BIEMH) exhibition took place at the Bilbao Exibition Center (BEC). Thanks to GAIKER-IK4, to whom we show our gratitude, BCMaterials was present in the event with a promotional video and some printed material, showing our efforts in the different fields

El pasado 27 de abril se celebró la sexta edición de la jornada “Polymers & Medical Applocatons” organizada por Leartiker. Estas jornadas se dedican a estudiar las oportunidades y novedades que las nuevas tecnologías y los polímeros ofrecen en el ámbito de la salud. Una de las ponentes fue Clara García, investigadora de BCMaterials, con

  A group of researchers from BCMaterials presented their latest scientific developments on basic and applied aspects of magnetism at the INTERMAG 2018 conference held in Singapore from April 23rd to 27th. The participation included invited and contributed talks, and poster presentations, delivered by Senentxu Lanceros, Ikerbasque professor and scientific director of the centre; Alfredo

Confi guration of the magnetosome chain: a natural magnetic nanoarchitecture This illustration depicts the Z-projection of electron cryotomogram of a magnetosome chain synthesized by the bacterium Magnetospirillum gryphiswaldense . Rather than straight lines, magnetosomes are arranged in helical-shaped chains. The geometry stems from the fact that the eff ective magnetic moment of individual magnetosomes is

INDESMOF Kick-off meeting

Tuesday, 17 April 2018 by

The kick off meeting of INDESMOF RISE-MCSA European Project will be held at the BCMaterials on April 20th, 2018. During the Kick-off meeting the technical, administrative and scientific parts of the project will be disused.  

Manu Barandiaran , former director of BCMaterials, was on past week at the Université de Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines – CNRS, talking about Magnetic Materials research at BCMaterials. Magnetic shape memory alloys (MSMAs), such as the Heusler compound Ni2MnGa and off-stoichiometric alloys, couple the martensitic transformation (MT) with ferromagnetism, enabling outstanding effects like magnetically induced strains, up to

Registration for the event “Future Perspectives on Novel Magnetic Materials”, which will take place from May 29 to June 3 at the Santorini Palace Hotel in Oia Santorini, is now open. For more information consult the web www.inapem.eu/santorini-workshop/ where the program is and you can register.

Senentxu Lanceros-Mendez, Ikerbaske Professor and Scientific Director of the Basque Center for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures is co-editor of the book “Printed Batteries: Materials, Technologies and Applications” Wiley, ISBN: 978-1-119-28742-1, offering the first comprehensive account of this interesting and growing research field. Printed Batteries: Materials, Technologies and Applications reviews the current state of the art

  The paper is named “Probing Structural and Magnetic Instabilities and Hysteresis in Heuslers by Density Functional Theory Calculations” written by  Volodymyr A. Chernenko, Jose M. Barandiaran and colleagues is the cover page of the February  edition of “Physica Status Solidi B”. “In their Feature Article (article no. 1700296), Entel et al. consider structural martensitic transformations

An investigation from BCMaterials, together with colleagues from the University of Minho, Portugal and the Technical University of Dresden, Germany, has been highlighted as journal cover in the journal Global Challenges, as a new approach in water decontamination. The contribution “Reusable Photocatalytic Optical Fibers for Underground, Deep-Sea, and Turbid Water Remediation” (DOI: 10.1002/gch2.201700124) shows the
