MUSICIAN will develop Nano-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems for next generation wireless networks and the Internet of Things

The project aims to apply the NOEMS technology, which is compatible with standard CMOS microelectronics, to optimise various functionalities of complex wireless networks, resulting in cheaper systems that consume less power. The ICN2 Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group, led by Prof. Dr Clivia Sotomayor-Torres, will participate in this research.

Engineering defects to control the optoelectronic properties of new hetero-materials

A study on van der Waals heterostructures unveils that the photoinduced processes at the interface between the different materials can be modified by electrically controlling the occupancy of the interfacial defects. The ICN2 Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems Group was involved in this research, just published in Nano Letters.

Another successful International Women’s Day celebration at the ICN2

The event was an occasion to introduce the new Plan of actions designed by the Equal Opportunity Committee for 2023-2026, to discuss about strategies for supporting women scientists and promoting their career advance, as well as to showcase some important research carried out by women at the ICN2. The awarding ceremony of the ICN2 Women Talent Programme 2022 closed the celebration.
