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.


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.


Low-cost wearable sweat analysis system

The CSIC has developed a low-cost system for analyzing sweat in real time. It has an ultra-compact format and can be integrated in wearable devices like smart-watches or patches. It enables the analysis in real-time of different sweat components and characteristics such as pH, glucose, lactate, and electrolytes.


Light and non-flammable Lithium-ion electrodes

A new method to manufacture self-supported ceramic electrodes for batteries, without any flammable material, has been developed. These electrodes can be flat and very thick or can have other shapes, like tubes, and their capacity per unit area can be up to ten times higher than that of commercial ones.


A device to obtain energy from vibrations

Scientists at the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona have developed a device to harvest energy from ambient vibrations. Sized in millimeters, it can provide with energy small devices or sensors which need little power.
