Teresa Puig receives one ERC Proof of Concept Grant for enabling high-temperature superconducting technologies

Teresa Puig is among the awardees for a project to scale-up a new manufacturing process of high-temperature superconductors. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded top-funding totalling 9.3 M€ to 62 ERC grant holders via its Proof of Concept Grants. They are meant to explore the commercial or societal potential of their research.

Welcome to Kapil Gupta, our new microscopist postdoc researcher!

Hi,

I am Kapil Gupta from India, where I received my PhD (Physics) in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, and later on, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Taiwan. I have recently joined the SUMAN group as a postdoc, to collaborate on the TEM studies of superconducting thin films in ULTRASUPERTAPE project, under the supervision of Prof. Teresa Puig. I am delighted to be here and looking forward to learn and collaborate with all of you.

Max Sieger at Ernst-Ruska Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Forschungszentrum Jülich

This week (13-17 May), our ULTRASUPERTAPE project post-doc, Max Sieger, went to the Ernst-Ruska Centre for Electron Microscopy at the Forschungszentrum Jülich near Aachen in Germany to participate in high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) experiments on superconducting thin films.

Report: The Superconducting Materials group at the “Fira de Recerca en Directe” at CosmoCaixa

Members of our group, the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMANGroup, were last week during four days at CosmoCaixa for the “Fira Recerca en Directe“, where research groups from different universities and research centers present their research to primary and secondary schools and families. Our group showed how to prepare superconducting thin films, and how levitating trains work.
