IFIMAC Day 2022 “10 years of IFIMAC” – Talks Session

“I would like to thank the IFIMAC researchers for their contribution to a very successful IFIMAC day in spite of the heat wave. It has been truly motivating to see so many young (and not so young…) faces eager to know about the activity of IFIMAC during the last 10 years and to present their current research. The Collaborative Projects have been one of the key activities funded by our Maria de Maeztu Research Excellence awards, and the talks showed how they have strongly contributed to create collaborations and synergies that are going to be crucial in our future. We really need the spirit shown by the IFIMAC researchers and their involvement in the centre’s activities to materialize the interesting opportunities that lay ahead.” – Rubén Pérez Pérez (IFIMAC Director)

 

Seriously, What Exactly Is Light?

Light is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic “substances” in the Universe. Is it a wave or a bunch of particles? Get ready, because today we take a journey through optics, electromagnetism and quantum physics.

 

How Did The Most Powerful Scanning Tunneling Microscope In The World End Up In Spain?

How was it possible to visualize atoms for the first time in the history? Development and application of microscopy from the beginning to the present.

Superconductors and Superfluids in Action

In this video, we show superconductors and superfluids in action, and reveal the quantum origin of their striking mechanical properties.

 

The Fifth State of Matter: Superfluids and Superconductors (Spanish)

The fifth state of matter is a new form of matter that is obtained by freezing atoms to very low temperatures, forming a gas cloud where the atoms share quantum properties. It has no electrical resistance and no friction and shows superfluidity.

Quantum material whose temperature is reduced if it is exposed to the sun (Spanish)

It is possible to manufacture a material with different layers, and also it is possible to change its emission of the electromagnetic waves to a point in which the air is not capable of absorbing its energy. In this way the material can be used as a cooling system.

Documentary about Condensed Matter Physics: So Close and Such a Stranger

IFIMAC researchers from Universidad Autonoma de Madrid has released a YouTube video on the value of Condensed Matter physics. The researchers who produced the video have also formed an outreach program: The So Close Project.

Seeking to show that important advances come from “little questions that lead to big answers,” winners of a 2014 APS Public Outreach Grant have released a YouTube documentary showing the importance of condensed matter physics in everyday life. The video, “Condensed Matter Physics: So Close and Such a Stranger,” was directed by Elsa Prada, Isabel Guillamón, and Enrique Sahagún from the Faculty of Sciences at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in Spain.
