Improving materials for perovskite solar cells

Scientists at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB) of the CSIC have participated in a research that compares perovskite solar cells containing different materials, in order to understand the differences in their performance.

Sustainable coating to increase magnesium alloys’ corrosion resistance

A multidisciplinary team of the CSIC has developed a sustainable and biocompatible coating for magnesium alloys that improves its resistance to corrosion, but also allows to have a progressive and controlled corrosion. The coating adheres perfectly to the substrate and has a high density, which multiplies its applications in this type of metal alloys.

Flexible and multifunctional nanocellulose ‘millefeuille’

Scientists from the CSIC’s Institute de Ciencia de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB) have developed a new concept for functional nanomaterials. It is a multilaminated material, a ‘millefeuille’ made of bacterial cellulose layers strongly attached. Each layer can have incorporated a different type of functional nanoparticle. This laminated material can be very thin: for example, the thickness of a four layer milfeuille is only the half of a conventional sheet paper.

Low cost and easy delamination process to isolate high quality graphene films

Researchers from the CSIC and the laboratory CIBER- BBN have developed a simple procedure to isolate highly crystalline graphene. The method enables the graphene to be transferred from the silicon carbide substrate, where it has been formed, to any other one, such as a dielectric for electronic device applications.
