New transistor concept, solar cell included

ICN2 researchers have developed a novel concept in transistor technology: a two-in-one power source plus transistor device that runs on solar energy. Published in Advanced Functional Materials, lead author Amador Pérez-Tomás ...

A nanophenomenon that triggers the bone-repair process

Researchers of the ICN2 Oxide Nanophysics Group led by ICREA Prof. Gustau Catalan have resolved one of the great unknowns in bone remodelling: how the cells responsible for forming new bone tissue are called into action. ...

Thermal gradients shown to enhance spin transport in graphene

Scientists of the ICN2 Physics and Engineering of Nanodevices Group, led by ICREA Prof. Sergio O. Valenzuela, have contributed to the literature on spin caloritronics with a focus on the effect of thermal gradients on spins ...

A record photovoltaic effect observed in antiferroelectrics

The photovoltaic effect is the main physical and chemical principle underlying solar cells. It is characterized by the conversion of photons into usable electrical energy. Modern photovoltaic devices have been intensively ...
