Nanoscience vermouth: bits of nanoscience just before lunch

The 10alamenos9 festival aims to bring nanoscience closer to society. Since confinement prevented the normal celebration of this festival, they decided to bring nanoscience to everyone’s house with the cycle Nanoscience Vermouth (Vermú de nanociencia). Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at noon they are publishing a talk about nanoscience on their YouTube channel.

Many of the research groups at ICFO use photons to better understand the nanoworld or develop new amazing technologies that may improve our society. Four of our researchers will briefly explain the projects on which they are working on.

Don’t miss the talks (in Spanish) prepared by ICFOnians!
