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.
Doctor Natalia Chamorro from the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group at ICMAB and the Chemistry Department at UAB, defend her PhD thesis entitled “Hybrid approach to obtain high-quality BaMO₃ perovskite nanocrystals for YBa₂Cu₃O7−δ superconducting nanocomposite” on Thursday, 14 January 2021 in an online session. Congrats!
The radio programme “Al matí” from Ràdio Sabadell hosted in its last edition of the “Ciència km 0” section, on 8 January 2021, ICMAB researcher Mariona Coll, working in new perovskites for photovoltaic energy.
Doctor Juri Banchewski from the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) group at ICMAB defended his PhD thesis entitled “Transient Liquid Assisted Growth of YBCO Superconducting Films: Growth Kinetics, Physical Properties and Vortex Pinning” on Thursday, 17 December 2020. Congratulations!
Doctor Hailin Wang from the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN), and Advanced Characterization and Nanostructured Materials (ACNM) groups at ICMAB defended his PhD thesis entitled “Epitaxial growth of complex functional oxide thin films by green and sustainable chemical solution methods” on Tuesday, 15 December 2020. The PhD Thesis was supervised by Narcís Mestres (SUMAN group) and Benjamín Martínez (ACNM group). Congrats!
The 33rd International Symposium on Superconductivity (ISS) 2020 conference, organized by AIST Tsukuba (Japan) was held between 1 and 3 December 2020. Several SUMAN researchers from ICMAB participated in the conference with many contributions.
