An international team of physicists carry out quantum simulation of the physical effects of disorder in topological insulators
A team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the United States, the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and the UPC uses experiments with ultra-cold atoms, trapped and driven by lasers, to create a new topological insulator induced by the disorder.

Marc Melgosa is defending his thesis on air traffic flow and capacity management
Marc Melgosa defended his thesis co-supervised by Dr. Xavier Prats and Dr. Andrija Vidosavljevic on March 22, 2023 at the Baix Llobregat Campus. Entitled "Enhanced Air Traffic Flow and Capacity Management under Trajectory Based Operations considering traffic Complexity", the thesis presents a new operational concept that integrates demand and capacity management in the same optimization problem, uses complexity metrics (in instead of the number of arrivals) to measure traffic and takes into account airspace user preferences allowing the possibility of using alternative trajectories to avoid airspace congestion

Identified a plastic crystal useful as an ecological cooler in refrigerators and air conditioners
Researchers from the physics department together with the University of Cambridge and the University of Barcelona have identified a solid material, respectful with the environment, which could replace the hydrofluorocarbon gases (HFC) and hydrocarbons (HC) -highly contaminants and flammable- that are used currently in most refrigerators, air conditioners and cooling systems

Xavier Navarro Bosque defends his thesis on the spatial and temporal organization of rain in the metropolitan area of Barcelona
Xavier Navarro Bosque defended his thesis co-directed by Raül Rodríguez Solà and M. Carmen Casas Castillo on March 17 at the Vilanova i la Geltrú Campus. Titled "Spatial and temporal organization of rain in the metropolitan area of Barcelona", the thesis presents a complete study on rain in the city of Barcelona that includes the updating of its intensity-duration-frequency curves and the its areal reduction factors, the kinematic monitoring of storms over the city, and the possible effects of climate change on extreme intensities.

A novel simulation procedure allows new insights on ectopic beats in the heart
Ramon y Cajal researcher in the Physics department Sergio Alonso publishes, in collaboration with Brazilian Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora and the Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin, a novel simulation method to understand how the hearts can beat anomalously with a signal originating from the same heart (ectopic beat) instead of our natural external pacemaker.
