Nanoneedles to increase the capacity and robustness of digital memories

Researchers at the UAB, ICMAB and the ALBA Synchrotron, in collaboration with the UB and ICN2, have developed a new technique to locally modify the properties of a metamagnetic material. The method consists in applying local pressure to the surface of the material using nanometric needles and allows a much more easy and local modification than current methods. The research opens the door to a more accurate and precise control of magnetic materials and allows to improve the architecture and capacity of magnetic digital memories.

ICN2 Health & Safety campaign to prevent COVID-19

The ICN2 Health & Safety Area has prepared an internal campaign for the prevention of the COVID-19 in the ICN2 premises. It consists of a series of posters and signals distributed throughout the ICN2 that show rules and tips to help us maintain health and safety measures against the coronavirus.
