The CSIC in Nanotech 2018

The CSIC has been in the last edition of Nanotech, which took place in Japan on 14th to 16 February, where it has introduced around 15 new technologies. With more than 44 thousand visitors, Nanotech is one of the biggest international focused on nanotechnologies.


Two projects led by the IMB-CNM and the ICN2, awarded in the ‘Generació d’Idees’ competition

The RES-KIT project, “Genetic pen-site kit to detect antimicrobial resistance genes”, led by CSIC scientists at the Barcelona Microelectronics Institute (IMB-CNM), has been awarded with the second prize in the 2017 edition of ‘Generació d’Idees’. The first prize went to Nanoplastics, a project led by the Nanoscience research institute ICN2.  


Optomechanical crystals to enable chaos-based secure data communications

Researchers from ICN2's Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures (P2N) Group published a study where the complex dynamics, including chaos, of optical nonlinearities are controlled by using optomechanical crystals and changing the parameters of the excitation laser. This discovery might allow the information to be coded by introducing chaos into the light carrying it.


Artificial Intelligence algorithms for solidarity

Scientists at the CSIC’s Instituto de Investigación en Inteligencia Artificial have developed an app, uHelp, to facilitate the creation and strengthening of solidarity communities.


A unique calibration pattern for spatial and conductive modes in Atomic Force Microscopes

The CSIC has developed an easy procedure for manufacturing calibration patterns suitable for Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM). A unique pattern supports a simultaneous geometrical and current calibration for the sample.
