Un marcapassos incrustat al cervell

A team of researchers of the UAB have developed a process which could increase the computer storage capacity. This application is due to the study of the magnetical properties of circular structures with submicrometrics size. By means of these tiny disks, the researchers have obtained "Exchange Biased Vortices", that could rise the magnetic...

Un nou procés de nanotecnologia pot augmentar la memòria dels ordinadors

To achieve an optimum, sure and clean industrial process is a challenge even now-a-days. It depends on several factors: macroscopic ones and those invisible to our eyes. Investigators of the ICMAB-CSIC at UAB are working at this level of approach. They closely study the physics and chemistry effects of industrial materials from a molecular...

Un model molecular que perfecciona processos industrials

The enlargement of the mountainous ranges ino the interior of the badges, far from his surface, is one of the failed subjects in the study of global tectonics. A team of investigators of the Department of Geology have demonstrated how a singular conjunction of superficial and deep processes have extended the intracontinental mountain ranges of...
