Our Institute still is under CSIC regulations during COVID-19 situation in Spain. This means that all experimental work is restricted until further notice. Nevertheless we are working at home in 3 new publications using teleworking, including a manuscript on biodetection using nanoparticles. We hope that part of this work will be useful to fight COVID-19 and other major issues.
New publication on photonic thermometry and nanostructured solar cells
Check out our latest publications in Nanomaterials for the fabrication of silicon nanowires that can improve the performance of future solar cells and photonic microrings for temperature sensing:
