Juan Sánchez-Baena defends his thesis on correlations in ultrafred quantum systems with spin-orbit coupling
Juan Sánchez-Baena defended his thesis co-directed by Jordi Boronat Medico and Ferran Mazzanti Castrillejo on December 14 at the North Campus. Titled "Correlations to ultrafreds quantum gases with spin-orbit coupling", the thesis presents a study on the effect of correlations induced by interactions between particles on systems that are under the influence of spin-orbit potentials.
Hadrien Calmet defends his thesis on fluid dynamics during a short and rapid inhalation (also called sniff) in the airways
Hadrien Calmet will defend his thesis directed by Dr. Guillaume Houzeaux and tutored by Dr. Daniel Calvete at the campus nord. Titled “Large-scale CFD and micro-particle simulations in a large human airways under sniff condition and drug delivery application,” the thesis presents results that set a precedent for large-scale airway simulations and provide a better understanding of the mechanisms. physiological
Haixia Lyu defends his thesis on contributions to ionospheric modeling with GNSS in the mapping function, tomography and characteristics of polar electronic content
Haixia Lyu telematically defended her thesis supervised by Professor Manuel Hernández-Pajares on November 17, 2020, entitled "Contributions to ionospheric modeling with GNSS in the mapping function, tomography and characteristics of polar electronic content." The thesis focuses on determining the vertical distribution of low- and high-resolution electron content from data from global positioning systems, GNSS (such as the American GPS) taken from terrestrial receivers and aboard orbiting satellites. low, and to improve knowledge of the climatology of the ionosphere in the polar and mid-latitude northern regions
Adrià Casanovas Hoste defends his thesis on measures of effective neutron capture sections of importance for the study of stellar nucleosynthesis
Adrià Casanovas Hoste defended his thesis, co-directed by Franciscño Calviño (UPC) and César Domingo (IFIC, Valencia), on 27 October at the ETSEIB. Titled "Neutron capture cross section measurement of the heaviest s-process branching 204Tl and of 203Tl at CERN n_TOF", the thesis presents the first ever measurement of the effective neutron capture section of the radioactive isotope of such 204Tl, of special relevance to the slow process of stellar nucleosynthesis, and performed in the CERN n_TOF experiment
Huixia Lu, a scholarship student from the China Scholarship Council (2016), defends her thesis on the behavior of proteins and small molecules in the environment of cell membranes
La Huixia Lu defended his thesis directed by Jordi Martí Rabassa. on September 29, 2020 at the Nort Campus of the UPC, entitled "Exploring free-energy landscapes and microscopic interactions of selected small-molecules and proteins with cell membranes", the thesis describes the interactions at the atomic level between molecular systems of biological interest and pharmacist with the constitutive lipids of cell membranes.
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.
Miquel Marchena Angós defends his thesis based on a mathematical model to simulate cells with atrial fibrillation
Miquel Marchena defended his thesis directed by Dr. Blas Echebarria on July 23, 2020. Titled "Modeling the pathological effects on intracellular calcium dynamics that leads to tone atrial fibrillation", the thesis presents a computational model related to atrial cell from which different pathological conditions that induce atrial fibrillation have been studied.
