High Temperature Magnetic Stabilization of Cobalt Nanoparticles

A work published in Physical Review Letters, with ICREA Prof Josep Nogués, Group Leader at ICN2, as its last author, explains how an Antiferromagnetic Proximity Effect makes the Magnetic Stabilization possible above 400 K (126.85 degrees Celsius). This achievement might have crucial implications for ultrahigh density recording among other applications.

Diffusion and Remote Detection of Hot-Carriers in Graphene

In a new article published in Nano Letters, ICN2 researchers led by ICREA Prof Sergio O. Valenzuela have investigated hot carrier propagation across graphene using an electrical nonlocal injection/detection method. The results create new opportunities for nanoscale bolometry and calorimetry and could have a strong impact in the performance of conventional graphene devices.
