Judith Medina Pardell defends her thesis on light control in EEL lasers
Judith Medina defended her thesis co-directed by Muriel Botey and Ramon Herrero on November 30 at the Terrassa Campus. Titled "Smart control of light in EEL lasers", the thesis presents different proposals to achieve a stable and focused emission of semiconductor lasers.
Yago Herrera defends his thesis about stellar winds from X-ray bursts
Yago Herrera defended his thesis co-directed by Glòria Sala and Jordi José on December 15 at the Diagonal-Besos Campus. Titled "Models of stellar winds from X-ray bursts", the thesis presents a study on the possible ejection of mass through a stellar wind during X-ray bursts, quantifying its composition and possible contribution to galactic abundances, and characterizing observables magnitudes that can lead to better measuring techniques of neutron stars properties.
Improving performance of racetrack microtrons
Yuri Kubyshin from NEMEN research group along with physicists from the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Moscow State University have published a paper devoted to an analysis of beam dynamics in electron accelerators of the racetrack microtron (RTM) type and searching for improvements of their characteristics.
Fading of the polaron in a gas of bosons due to temperature effect
PhD student Gerard Pascual and professor Jordi Boronat of the research group Approaches to the first principles in condensed matter physics: quantum effects and complexity; have published a paper in the journal Physical Review Letters, where it is theoretically described how a polaron, the result of the interaction of an impurity with a gas of bosons in the condensation phase, disappears due to the effect of temperature
Jonathan Fernando Gebbia defends his thesis on the study of the low-temperature anomalies of glasses existing in molecular crystals
Jonathan Fernando Gebbia defended his thesis co-directed by Josep Lluís Tamarit and Michela Romanini on October 6th at the Besòs campus (EEBE). Titled "Emerging glassy properties in molecular crystals", the thesis presents the study of low temperature anomalies of glasses found in different molecular crystals by means of low temperature calorimetry, inelastic neutron scattering, and simulations based on ab-initio DFT
Martí Català defends his thesis on mathematical models of infectious diseases
Martí Català defended his thesis directed by Clara Prats and Sergio Alonso from the Computational Biology and Complex Systems group (BIOCOM-SC) on October 14, 2021 at the Castelldefels Campus. The thesis is entitled "Mathematical models for the study of infectious diseases, from understanding to prediction", and analyzes the application of mathematical models to the spread of Tuberculosis and Covid-19
Jordi Ortiz de Urbina defends his thesis on orientational properties and local structure in supercooled molecular liquids
Jordi Ortiz de Urbina defended his thesis directed by Gemma Sesé Castel on September 30, 2021 at the North Campus. Titled “Orientational dynamics and local order in supercooled molecular liquids”, the thesis analyzes the behavior at temperatures close to the vitreous transition thanks to the results obtained in molecular dynamics simulations
