IMAGING INTRACELLULAR CALCIUM ACCUMULATION IN CALCIFYING MARINE ALGAE
The research provides the first insights on the spatial distribution of calcium in coccolithophores, widespread marine algae that may play an important role in the response of the oceanic ecosystem to predicted global climate change.

RESEARCHERS OBTAIN NANOMETRIC MAGNETITE WITH FULL PROPERTIES
When reducing materials at the nanoscale, they typically lose some of their properties. The experiments have been carried out at the CIRCE beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron.

HOW DO PLANTS RESIST SOIL MERCURY?
Scientists from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) are analysing at the infrared microspectroscopy beamline MIRAS how plants tolerate mercury, one of the most toxic and common heavy metals founded in polluted soils.

RESEARCHERS STUDY THE VELVET EFFECT OF CHOCOLATE IN ALBA
A University of Barcelona research team has come to the NCD beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron for this experiment. One of the study’s conclusions is that the smooth mouthfeel results from the small size of the crystals and the lower melting temperature of the velvety chocolate coating.

THE HIDDEN MAGNETISM IN HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS
Researchers from ICMAB and the ALBA Synchrotron have found a new magnetic mechanism in high temperature superconductor cuprates, proving the coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity. Results have been published in Advanced Science, including key measurements performed at BOREAS beamline.

A NEW KEY TARGET FOR THE TREATMENT OF PROSTATE CANCER
An international research lead by Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB) and the Research Institute of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau (IIB Sant Pau) shows, for the first time, the three-dimensional structure of the homodimeric androgen receptor ligand-binding domain. In order to solve the 3D structure of the protein, X-ray diffraction analyses have been conducted at the XALOC beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron.

MEDIEVAL BONES ANALYSED WITH SYNCHROTRON LIGHT
The infrared beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron, MIRAS, is analysing archaeological samples of two skeletons buried in a medieval church in the area of old Herzegovina. The aim of the experiment is to understand the disorders of bones. These data can provide useful information about the influence of the environment and living conditions at the middle ages at this Mediterranean area.

A CLASSIC MINERAL TURNS OUT TO BE A NEW SEMICONDUCTOR FOR MODERN ELECTRONICS
A group of researchers has proved that franckeite, a mineral belonging to the sulfosalts family, behaves naturally as a two-dimensional material with semiconducting properties and promising applications in next-generation electronic devices, such as photodetectors or solar cells. They have been able to isolate and exfoliate ultrathin flakes of this mineral with methods compatible with large scale manufacturing. Using ALBA's synchrotron light, they could demonstrate the homogeneity of the chemical composition of individual franckeite flakes of a few atomic layers.
