Dr. Salvio Suárez-García as speaker in the Advanced Materials Cluster event

16 Mar 2022

The event has been focused on the latest advances in the development of materials and technologies in the micro- and nanoworld.

Today, the Advanced Materials Cluster of Catalonia has organized a meeting session between companies and three of its associates that are part of the Barcelona Nanocluster Bellaterra (BNC-b) network: the Barcelona Institute of Materials Science (ICMAB-CSIC), the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona – National Center for Microelectronics (IMB-CNM) and the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2).

The first part of the event featured different presentations in a hybrid format on some of the innovations in the field of micro/nanomaterials and technologies. Our postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Salvio Suárez-García, was one of the speakers. He explained the technologies developed in the Nanosfun group for the coating of surfaces and the modulation of their properties. In this sense, he has presented bioinspired materials based on catechol systems as universal coatings for their use in different areas such as environmental remediation, among others. Likewise, he has also disclosed the group’s latest developments on (photo)chromic materials and their main applications, such as smart windows and inks.

In the last part of the event, the Cluster members have visited the different associated centers. Dr. Salvio Suárez-García, together with the PhD student Jaume Otaegui and our specialist technician Aleix Carrascull have shown our facilities and different demonstrations of the developed materials and their use in various applications.
