Superabsorbers nanomaterials that trap sunlight

ICMAB researchers have designed ultrathin materials that maximize the absorption of light in a large range of the solar spectrum. The followed strategy is low cost and fully scalable. The obtained superabsorbers materials have many potential applications, especially in the field of photovoltaic energy and photodetection.

A portable device to measure photocatalytic activity of materials

Scientists at the CSIC have developed a device called “pholouring” to instantly measure the photo-catalytic activity of materials. The device detects the photo-catalytic activity through probes and color indicators which are in contact with the analysed material. Virtually any material, either solid, liquid or a solution, can be tested.

Novel photonic materials made up on self-assembly particles for sensing applications

Spanish researchers from the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) and the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) have formed highly-porous metal-organic framework particles that spontaneously assemble into well-ordered 3D superstructures that present photonic crystal properties. Their discoveries are expected to find applications in the design of novel photonic materials for sensing applications, among others.
