From aircraft to electronic devices, and even in Formula One cars, stress is the main cause of degraded material performance and mechanical failure in applications incorporating thin films and coatings.
Prof. Nicolás Agraït, IFIMAC researcher, will coordinate the FET Open project QuIET (Quantum Interference Enhanced Thermoelectricity.
The COST Action "NANOSCALE COHERENT HYBRID DEVICES FOR SUPERCONDUCTING QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES" has been recently awarded. The Action includes 45 proponents from 18 countries, the main proposer being Hermann Suderow.

The lattice damage in a diamond crystal irradiated with 9-MeV carbon ions has been studied as a function of fluence and layer depth by Raman and photoluminescence micro-spectroscopies.
The effective redirection of spin waves and their local control are among the main challenges faced by the emergent field of magnon spintronics. To solve the problem Lara et al. introduce a breakthrough technology for communication and signal processing using spin waves localized at the edges of magnetic nanostructures.
