Bendable recording device

Scientists at the ICMAB-CSIC have developed a new magnetic recording device where information is cloaked, virtually unerasable and bendable. The device can store information like a magnetic band of a credit card or a barcode, or even like other more advanced magnetic memories. Once written the information is unalterable and safe.

New refrigerating machine with an efficiency comparable to the electric ones

Researchers at the CSIC have developed a refrigerating machine suitable for bromide lithium-water absorption, air-air, direct expansion and Split, with a high energy efficiency. It is a sustainable and efficient alternative designed for home cooling. It is condensed by air, has less environmental impact, is easy to build and it does not generate contamination by Legionella.

Imitating the morphology of animals and plants for improving materials

Scientists in the European project LiNaBioFluid have researched the microstructures that give amazing qualities to animals and plants. These microstructures can be reproduced by laser on several materials to overcome technological issues. Now, a new project, will implement some of the results copying vegetal morphologies on natural stones to protect them and extend its lifetime.

Ultralight, elastic and highly porous graphene oxide aerogels

CSIC scientists at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona have developed and patented a method based on the use of supercritical CO2 to produce graphene oxide aerogels on a large scale and in a sustainable way. Similar to a sponge, the material has oxygenated groups suitable to perform chemical transformations à la carte for every desired application. Industrial partners are sought for further development.
