PhD Defense of Andrea Fernández entitled “Recovery and re-use of carbon fibres from recycled end-of-life epoxy based composites” – April 1st, 2022.

The PhD Defense will take place on the 1st of April, at 11:00 am in room “3.S01.08 “of the University Carlos II of Leganes in Madrid. The dissertation is entitled “Recovery and re-use of carbon fibres from recycled end-of-life epoxy based composites”. It was advised by Prof. Jon Mikel

Seminar of Dr. Jaime S. Sanchez from the University of Technology (Sweden), entitled “All-Electrochemical Graphene Composite Multilayers Deposited on Carbon Fibers and 3D-Foams for Energy Storage” – January 27th, at 12:00 pm in the Auditorium.

Abstract: Major breakthroughs in batteries would require the development of new composite materials, with a precisely controlled nanoscale architecture. These materials can be synthesized directly on the electrodes using electrochemical methods, allowing sequential deposition, high structural

Seminar of Prof. Bianchi Mendez from the Materials Physics Department of “Universidad Complutense Madrid”, entitled “Nano-heterostructures based on wide bandgap semiconducting oxides: Synthesis and optical properties ” – 26th of November, at 11:00 am in the Auditorium.

Abstract: Wide band gap (WBG) oxides are currently attracting a lot of attention due to both their versatility in achieving a nanostructured architecture as well as from their capability of interacting with the ultraviolet radiation. In this talk, I will present our latest results concerning the

Seminar of Prof. Johan Christensen from the Carlos III University of Madrid, entitled “Vibrant future for acoustic and mechanical metamaterials” – 24th of September, at 12:30 pm in the Auditorium.

Abstract The boost experienced by acoustic and mechanical metamaterial research during the past years has been driven by the ability to sculpture the flow of sound waves and vibrations at will. Metamaterials, which come in all kinds of shapes and forms, have initially been designed for
