The Manuel Cardona lecture series offers the ICN2 community and beyond the opportunity to hear from some of the world's top researchers in nano-related fields. They are named in honour of Prof. Manuel Cardona, a Barcelona-born physicist and one of Spain's most prominent scientists who, from his positions abroad, had a profound impact on many of the research centres in our area.

Here we leave you with the recordings of some of the lectures, plus interviews with some of their speakers.
