Nikolai Kvashin defends his thesis on the slip transfer phenomenon in BCC metals
Nikolai Kvashin defended his thesis co-directed by Napoleón Anento and Dmitry Terentyev on 16th of November 2022 at Campus Nord. Titled “Atomistic Study of Slip Transfer in BCC Metals “, the thesis presents an atomistic computer simulation study on the interaction between dislocations (single and pile-up cases) and a set of grain boundaries with the purpose to investigate the role played by the grain boundary atomic structure

Interacting polarons : Simulations of interacting quasiparticles in ultracold quantum gas
Quasiparticles are an essential tool to describe the complex processes arising from strong interactions in solids. These quasiparticles can be simulated and accurately studied in a radically different system, i.e., an ultracold quantum gas. Now scientists have been able to observe in an actual experiment how quasiparticles called Fermi polarons interact with each other. Their findings have been published in Nature Physics.

Researchers from the DNOLL research group convert the bass chords of a song by the group 'Queen' into an image
Cristina Masoller, Pablo Amil, Donatus Halpaap and Jordi Tiana-Alsina are researchers from the UPC Physics Department at the Terrassa Campus. The team of researchers have detected audio signals at a distance, without listening to the emitter, and have converted them into images using laser light. The experiment, which was performed by recording the first bass chords of the song 'Another one bites the dust' by the British group 'Queen', has been published in the magazine 'Optics Express'. The method has been baptized with the name 'Best Pixel' and has had the collaboration of Italian scientists from the Università degli studi di Catania.

Sergi Mas-Pujol defends his thesis on the management of imbalances between demand and air capacity using deep learning techniques
Sergi Mas-Pujol defended his thesis co-supervised by Dra. Esther Salamí and Dr. Enric Pastor on May 12, 2023 at the Baix Llobregat Campus. Entitled "Deep Learning techniques for Demand-Capacity Balancing", the thesis studies the use of artificial intelligence techniques to improve the detection of air regulations and how to smooth traffic in periods of high demand, proposing different models that have takes into account the needs of the main parties involved (network management entity and airlines) and a reinforcement learning model based on the use of images.

Important results published on a molecular mechanism that causes a type of serious cardiac arrhythmia
Blas Echebarria and Enric Àlvarez, researchers in the Physics department of the research group in Computational Biology and Complex Systems (BIOCOM-SC), together with researchers from the Heart Rate Analysis and Control (ANCORA) research group at the UPC, and other international scientists have identified one of the molecular mechanisms responsible for cardiac alternation. This is an alteration of the heart rhythm that facilitates the induction of ventricular fibrillation, a potentially lethal type of arrhythmia. This discovery, published in the journal Circulation Research (AHA Jounals), opens the door to new pharmacological treatments.

Analysis of the last two centuries of rainfall records in Andalusia for the detection of possible changes caused by global warming
As a result of a collaboration with researchers from the University of Córdoba, M. Carmen Casas and Raúl Rodríguez have evaluated the quality of the rainfall data of Andalusia available since 1870, long before the first modern meteorological stations were put into operation, and have analyzed the different rainfall patterns in the region in pursuit of the detection of possible changes caused by global warming

Qi Liu defends his thesis on GNSS-based Global Ionospheric Maps: real-time combination, time resolution and applications on space weather monitoring
Qi Liu telematically defended his thesis supervised by Professor Manuel Hernández-Pajares on April 14, 2022, entitled "GNSS-based Global Ionospheric Maps: real-time combination, time resolution and applications on space weather monitoring”. The thesis focuses on GIMs including the combination of Global Ionospheric Maps (GIMs) from different centers in real-time, evaluation of real-time GIMs, investigation of the impact of temporal resolution on GIMs, and applications of GIMs on new indices about spatial-temporal components of the VTEC gradient as well as ionospheric storm-scale.
