Quantum mechanics explains how superfluid helium films grow in carbon nanotubes
A study by an international team of researchers, led by ICFO scientists and with the participation of Jordi Boronat, a researcher from the Physics Department of the UPC, shows the controlled growth process of superfluid helium, layer by layer, in the surface of carbon nanotubes. The experiment opens the door to studying new phenomena at the nanoscale and, specifically, in transitions of topological phases.

Are dislocations in solid helium “supersolid”?
A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain), Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Brazil) and Stanford University (USA) performed advanced quantum atomistic simulations to assess the Bose-Einstein condensate fraction of solid helium at zero temperature containing dislocations, a defective system that previously had been proposed to be “supersolid”

Hossameldin Mohamed Selim Mohamed Selim presents his thesis on 3D reconstruction of defects using a non-destructive testing method based on laser-induced ultrasound
Hossameldin will present his thesis co-directed by Crina Cojocaru (Dept. of Physics) and Miguel Delgado prieto (Dept. of Electronic Engineering), on July 21 at the Terrassa Campus. Entitled "Hybrid non-destructive technique for volumetric defect analysis and reconstruction by remote laser induced ultrasound", the thesis is on the design, study and implementation of a non-destructive non-destructive testing (NDT) method. for the analysis of metallic objects containing internal defects or fractures. An opto-acoustic hybrid technique is proposed that combines ultrasound generated by laser impact as an exciter and ultrasound transducers as receivers.
