High efficiency, hybrid neutron detector

Scientists at the Microelectronics Institute of Barcelona (IMB-CNM) from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) have designed a high-efficiency and low-cost hybrid neutron detector. The combination of two technologies, MEMS (Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems) y microfluidics has enabled the development of an hybrid (liquid-semiconductor) device, whose main application is the neutron detection. Its high performance and portability make it suitable for sectors like nuclear medicine and security, industrial analysis and space exploration.

A heat-pump system based on lithium bromide and water

Scientists at the CSIC have developed a new type of heat-pump system which prevents environmental and safety problems, as it has not either greenhouse gases nor risk of Legionella. The prototypes are small and robust, therefore they can be used in transport (buses, trucks or boats), using as a source of energy the remaining heat of the exhaust fumes.

Lab-on-a-chip. The future is here

Measuring up to 16 biological parameters with a chip seized only 3 centimetres: is the result of a research developed by scientists at the Centro d’Investigación en Nanociencia y Nanotecnología (CIN2). This new photonic biosensor has been patented in the US and Europe.

Improved nanoparticles for diagnosis and traceability uses

Scientists at the CSIC and at the Universidad de Vigo have developed nanoparticles able to identify almost any substance or molecule, such as drugs, pathogens, pollutants or cells. The particles could be also used as markers to track objects or molecules, to ‘follow’ and detect them through different detection techniques.
