Pablo Amil creates the first tomography map for diagnosing glaucoma
The researcher from the Physics department has created an objective model that classifies the degrees of the iridocorneal angle, a key element for assessing the severity of glaucoma. With this model, ophthalmologists will have a tool to help patients make a decision when considering surgery.

Pablo Amil defends his thesis on medical image analysis using artificial intelligence
Pablo Amil defended his doctoral thesis supervised by Cristina Masoller, in the ETSIAAT in Terrassa on February 11, 2020. Titled "Machine learning methods for the characterization and classification of complex data", the thesis presents several automatic learning methods focused particularly on the analysis of ophthalmological images, and complex data in general. The results presented in the thesis show how the proposed artificial intelligence methods are able to distinguish healthy eyes from sick eyes

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.

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.
