Lowdim takes part in one of the 20 consortiums of the 1st-phase of the Quantum Flagship

tip The group formed by Daniel Andrés Penares, Marie Kreĉmarová, Alejandro Molina Sánchez, Juan F. Sánchez Royo and Juan P. Martínez Pastor, takes part in one of the 20 consortiums selected for the first phase of the Quantum Flagship. This consortium is called S2QUIP ‘Scalable Two-Dimensional Quantum Integrated Photonics’. In this project, researchers will develop quantum photonics through the integration of two-dimensional semiconductor materials compatible with CMOS technology, which is widely used in the fabrication of traditional integrated circuits.

A new photoemission system to study the electronic properties of matter

tip The project IDIFEDER-2018/055, supported by the Generalitat Valenciana through FEDER founds, will make available a new photoemission system able to determine the electronic and chemical properties of matters. The acquired equipment will even provide the possibility the 3D determination of the spin of photoelectrons. This would be the first equipment in Spain able to provide an ARPES and XPS study of the spin of photoelectrons in the 3 projections.

PhD event

tip The next Monday 10st of November, David Rivas will defend his PhD project. We desire him the best.
