Using the photoelectron microscope at the CIRCE beamline, researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry "Rocasolano" (CSIC) and the ALBA Synchrotron have determined the magnetic moment of a well defined magnetite surface. Results of this research have been recently published in Physical Review B.
A team of researchers and engineers of the ALBA Synchrotron has collaborated with members of the company Alibava Systems and the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM CSIC) to develop a radiation detector aimed at measuring the intensity of the beam with high precision when performing an experiment at a synchrotron facility. This new detector enables a correct development of the experiment, ensuring the quality of the obtained data and reducing the time of the experiment.
On February 16th The Opening Ceremony of the International Year of Light took place in Barcelona with the participation of 500 attendees.
The call for proposals for 2015-II cycle is opened till February 23rd. The experiments will be performed from July to end December 2015. This call is not opened for MX proposals. For this period, Long Term Proposals will be accepted under restricted conditions.
More than 1,000 participants are attending the Opening Ceremony of the International Year of Light 2015 on 19th and 20th January in Paris. Caterina Biscari, on behalf of light sources, is giving a talk about the frontiers of synchrotron science.
