Measuring an excited state of 23Mg helps to understand stellar explosions
Physics professor Jordi José participates in an international project in which, the measurement of an unstable state of 23Mg, lasting only 10^(-14) seconds, has allowed the possible detection of gamma rays from stellar explosions to be precisely quantified

Multi-functional GNSS positioning study with multi-constellation, multi-frequency with high accuracy and integrity
Deimos Ibáñez Segura defended his thesis co-directed by Adrià Rovira Garcia and Jaume Sanz Subirana on October 23 at the North Campus. Titled "Contributions to multi-purpose GNSS positioning to support multi-frequency and multi-constellation with high accuracy and integrity", the thesis presents, on the one hand, different methods for GNSS processing (multi-constellation, multi-frequency, fast convergence, integrity and maritime applications), and on the other hand the study of different components that affect GNSS positioning (such as the ionosphere, errors in the signal in space). All the processing is furthermore integrated into a tool, gLAB, aimed at both professionals and students, which already has an international impact and with the improvements made in this thesis will significantly increase its impact.

New physical mechanism for the formation of transverse finger bars in beaches with abundant supply of sand
Albert Falqués and Francesca Ribas, from the group of Nonlinear fluid dynamics of the Physics Department, together with two other researchers from the UPC, have discovered a new morphodynamic instability mechanism that can explain the formation of alongshore-rhythmic systems of transverse finger bars that often develop at beaches with an abundant supply of sand, like those at El Trabucador beach, in the Ebro delta
