Abstract Metallic materials are of interest in the healthcare sector because they can be used for multiple applications including as biodegradable implants and as antimicrobial touch surfaces for hospitals and other healthcare settings. With an ever-increasing demand for materials that need to
Nanostructured fabrics to host new nanomaterials for advanced electrodes in energy storage and conversion
IMDEA Materials has developed a method to produce highly conducting nanostructured fabrics for use as current collectors or scaffold for active materials in composite electrodes for energy storage and conversion. Integration of these fabrics reduces electrode weight, improves cyclability/durability
First Year Assessment of Lucia Cobian, entitle “Experimental-Numerical Analysis of Polymer Based Lattice Materials Fabricated with Additive Manufacturing” – 24th of June, 2021.
ABSTRACT: Lattice materials are materials constituted by the repetition of small cells composed of structural units as bars, beams or shells, which form a lattice. The cell geometry can be designed to have an outstanding macroscopic response such as very high specific stiffness or energy

Dr. Saeid Loftian was born in Iran. He joined IMDEA Materials in 2010, where he completed his PhD thesis entitled "High-Temperature Mechanical Behavior of Al/SiC Nanoscale Multilayers" under the supervision of Dr. Jon Molina and Prof. Javier LLorca. The thesis was awarded with the best PhD Thesis
One Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship has been awarded to our center in call 2020, and 2 more are very high in the reserve list. A total 7 proposals were submitted by our center. They have received marks in the range 98.4 - 79.2 and are all above the threshold. Despite the fierce
Manufacturing in the EU is crucial, given that it is one of the main drivers in innovation, job creation and sustainable growth. It involves almost 2,000,000 companies that provide approximately 28.5 million jobs. Therefore, its impact is significant in terms of economic share, with it being ~18% of
First Year Assessment of Xiaolu Li, entitle “Highly-sensitive Flame-retardant Smart Sensor for Early Warning Fire Detection to Polymer-based Materials” – 23th of November at 2:30 pm
Abstract Fire hazard is one of the major disasters that threaten public safety seriously. Once a fire occurs, the fire will spread quickly along some flammable materials, which bring much difficulty to control the fire. The fire hazard will cause casualties, considerable property loss and medical

Seminar of Zhouwen Zhao from Michigan State University, entitle “Critical Resolved Shear Stresses (CRSS) of Hexagonal Titanium from Nanoindentation Optimization” – July 18th at 1:00 pm, in the Seminar Room
Abstract: Titanium and its alloys are important engineering materials due to their low density, high strength, and good bio-compatibility. The study of critical resolved shear stress (CRSS) values of basal, prismatic, and pyramidal ⟨c + a⟩ slip systems has been a hot topic in the community as
Seminar of Dr. Enzo Liotti from the University of Oxford, entitle “In-situ x-ray imaging studies of solidification” – July 2nd at 12:30 pm, in the Seminar Room
I Abstract Synchrotron x-ray–based imaging techniques, such as radiography and tomography, have reached sufficient spatio-temporal resolution that they are now used almost routinely to investigate solidification in technologically important systems such as steel, Ni, Al, and other alloy
