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.

Researchers from the Physics Department and the IGTP evaluate the evolution of the epidemic by COVID-19 and the effectiveness of control measures, using mathematical models
Researchers from the Computational Biology and Complex Systems group (BIOCOM-SC) of the UPC and the Center for Comparative Medicine and Bioimaging (CMCiB) of the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), with the impulse of “la Caixa”, Developed a mathematical model to monitor the epidemic of COVID-19. The report they make for the European Union strategy office based on the model is updated daily and includes predictions for Catalonia, Spain and the European Union. The model also serves to analyze the effectiveness of the measures established in the different countries.

Researchers publish theoretical prediction of a new type of quantum liquid
Recently Grecia Guijarro has defended her PhD thesis under supervision of Jordi Boronat and Grigory Astrakharchik in the research group "Approaches to the first principles in condensed matter physics: quantum effects and complexity". The theoretical prediction of existence of a novel type of a quantum ultradilute liquid has been published in Physical Review Letters journal. It was found that dipolar interactions on their own are sufficient for creating an ultradilute quantum liquid in a bilayer geometry.

Riccardo Silini defends his thesis on causal inference and prediction methods for the analysis of climate data
Riccardo Silini defended his thesis co-directed by Cristina Masoller and Marcelo Barreiro on July 5 at the Terrassa Campus. Titled "Causal inference and forecasting methods for climate data analysis", the thesis presents data analysis techniques to identify those processes that contain causal information for the prediction of a process of interest, and machine learning algorithms to improve the prediction of the climatic phenomenon called Madden-Julian oscillation.
