Created a method to prevent and detect forest desertification
Giulio Tirabassi and Cristina Masoller have created an algorithm based on the analysis of satellite data provided by NASA's MODIS instrument that allows preventing the definitive destruction of natural environments
Unmasking the microscopic fingerprint in finite-temperature features of a one-dimensional Bose gas
A team of researchers from UPC in Barcelona and EPFL in Lausanne built a new theory to explain the finite-temperature properties in terms of microscopic excitations of bosons in one dimension
Participation of the Physics department in research using the WEAVE spectrograph on the evolution of galaxies
A few hundred astronomy professionals have designed and planned a total of five years of operations for the WEAVE spectrograph, a powerful instrument recently installed at the Canary Islands Observatory.
A new experimental and numerical investigation on the fatigue response of composite and metal aircraft structures
The researchers Siddharth Pitta, Jose I. Rojas, Francesc Roure, Daniel Crespo, and Magd Abdel Wahab, from the Group of Materials Characterization of the UPC, the Materials Strength Laboratory of the UPC, and the Ghent University, have made new progresses in the characterization of the fatigue response of aircraft repair patches made of carbon fiber reinforced epoxy (CFRE) and aluminum alloy on aircraft airframe substrates made as well of CFRE and aluminum alloy
The new research on intrinsic correlation between the fraction of liquid-like zones and the beta-relaxation in high-entropy metallic glasses
Researchers Y. J. Duan, E. Pineda and D. Crespo, from the Group of Materials Characterization of the UPC, have made new progress to understand the mechanical properties of high-entropy metallic glasses. The work clarifies the correlation between the fraction of liquid-like zones, i.e. the fraction of atoms that can easily rearrange under the effect of external forces, and the secondary or β relaxation observed in these materials. Besides, the work reveals the high-entropy effect on the supercooled liquid dynamics of the metallic melt.
Nikolai Kvashin defends his thesis on the slip transfer phenomenon in BCC metals
Nikolai Kvashin defended his thesis co-directed by Napoleón Anento and Dmitry Terentyev on 16th of November 2022 at Campus Nord. Titled “Atomistic Study of Slip Transfer in BCC Metals “, the thesis presents an atomistic computer simulation study on the interaction between dislocations (single and pile-up cases) and a set of grain boundaries with the purpose to investigate the role played by the grain boundary atomic structure
Xiao Liu defends his thesis on high-precision instantaneous GNSS positioning
Xiao Liu defended his thesis co-supervised by Jaume Sanz Subirana and Adria Rovira Garcia on xxxx-xx at Campus Nord. Entitled "Contributions to High Accuracy Snapshot GNSS Positioning", the thesis presents a novel method for high accuracy GNSS positioning using only a very short interval of the GNSS satellite signal.
