Researchers identify particles trapped in 2D materials that are essential for the design of quantum computers

By | Chemistry, Technology | No Comments

Researchers from the Institute of Materials Science of the University of Valencia (ICMUV) have contributed to detecting excitons – particles responsible for the interaction between light and matter – trapped in 2D materials that form moire patterns, one of the scientific challenges in this field. The finding, published in Nature Materials, represents a step forward towards the design of new materials for the next generation of devices applicable to the quantum computer. Read More

Researchers make new discovery on the molecular structure of natural products

By | Chemistry | No Comments

Researchers from the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) of the University of Valencia have managed to synthesise a new porous material that makes it possible to encapsulate a series of active principles of natural substances and determine their chemical structure by using X-ray diffraction. This will allow for the future characterisation of natural products, hitherto unknown, and to reveal their chemical properties. The work has been published in Nature Communications. Read More
