Seminario del Departamento de Física de la Materia Condensada: “Neither solids nor liquids per se. Emerging materials & paradigms for energy conversion & storage”.- Viernes 1 de marzo

El 1 de marzo de 2024 se celebrará una nueva sesión de los Seminarios del Departamento de Física de la Materia Condensada de la Universidad de Zaragoza, con Félix Fernández Alonso (Materials Physics Center, Ikerbasque, San Sebastián), que ofrecerá la conferencia titulada: “Neither solids nor liquids per se. Emerging materials & paradigms for energy conversion & storage”.

La sesión tendrá lugar a las 12:30 horas en la Sala de Grados de la Facultad de Ciencias de la Universidad de Zaragoza.

Resumen de la conferencia (en inglés): A growing number of emerging classes of materials for energy conversion & storage are hard to classify (and understand) using the conceptual framework that we all learn as physicists or chemists when introduced to the world of condensed matter. Examples of the above include the metal intercalates that we all have in our mobile phones; phase-change materials for thermal energy storage; barocalorics for solid-state refrigeration; or organic-inorganic perovskites for photovoltaics & photonics. Common to all of them is the emergence of dynamical disorder at the atomic and molecular levels from the outset, more-often-than-not responsible for their function, performance, and realm of applicability. With a broad audience in mind, this talk will provide an overview of our current research efforts in this area of materials research, using a combination of experimental probes (most notably neutron-based) along with computational materials modelling.

Resumen de su currículo (en inglés): Felix is Ikerbasque Professor at the Materials Physics Center and DIPC Associate at the neighboring Donostia International Physics Center. His research is focused on the exploration of new materials for energy and sustainability, with an emphasis on the development and use of state-of-the-art radiation-scattering techniques in conjunction with computational materials modelling. He is Honorary Professor at University College London, Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute, Member of the Statistical Mechanics & Thermodynamics Group Committee of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and Member of the Board of Directors of the Spanish Neutron Scattering Society. Prior to his current role, he was Group Leader and Professor of Physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and University College London, Scientific Director of the Center for Molecular Structure & Dynamics of the UK Science & Technology Facilities Council, and President of the UK Neutron Scattering Society. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from Stanford University (USA) and undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Mathematics from Hamilton College (USA) and Imperial College London (UK).

El ciclo de Seminarios del Departamento de Física de la Materia Condensada cuenta con la colaboración del Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón, INMA, instituto mixto del CSIC y la Universidad de Zaragoza, y la Facultad de Ciencias de la Universidad de Zaragoza.
