Charla de Diego Blas: «Soundscape of gravitational waves: a new tool to access the fundamental blocks of the Universe»

Diego Blas is a researcher at UAB (Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona) and IFAE (Instituto de Física de Altas Energías). His research interests are in theoretical physics, gravitation and cosmology.

Abstract: In this talk, current and future efforts to detect gravitational waves from Earth and space observatories will be reviewed. Diego will also emphasise the physical consequences of these searchers, in particular regarding fundamental physics (primordial cosmology, dark matter, modified gravity…)

Viernes 6 mayo, 12 horas, seminario de Física Nuclear. On-line (Google-meet)

Charla de Héctor Gómez-Maluenda: Muography and Nuclear Safety: Reactors surveillance, and monitoring and waste qualification


Héctor Gómez-Maluenda ist a researcher at «Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives» (CEA – France)

Abstract: The use of muons produced at the Earth’s atmosphere as radiation source for the scanning of big structures is usually referred as muography. Since first muography attempts by Alvarez in the 1970s, the range of applications of this technique has been broadened in the last years mainly due to the advances on the particle detectors used and to the improvements on the analysis techniques. Thus, different muography measurements have been done for vulcanology, archaeology, geotechnics or civil engineering. Among these different applications, the IRFU group (Institut de recherche sur les lois fondamentales de l’Universe – CEA – France) is developing since the last years several projects regarding Nuclear Safety. They include the characterisation of nuclear reactors and their real-time surveillance or the verification of waste containers. After a general introduction to muography, this seminar will be focused on these activities carried out at CEA and their main results, including those about first 3D reconstructions using this technique, passing from muography to muon tomography.

Jornada de Puertas Abiertas de la Facultad de Ciencias del curso 2021/2022

Esta mañana, investigadores e investigadoras el CAPA han recibido a dos grupos de estudiantes de 1BAC del IES Pablo Serrano en la novena sesión de la Jornada de Puertas Abiertas de la Facultad de Ciencias del curso 2021/2022.  Los estudiantes has asistido a una charla sobre La Física del Universo y participado en actividades sobre radioactividad y rayos cósmicos en los laboratorios del GIFNA ¡Esperemos que hayan aprendido y disfrutado!


Cuarta y última sesión para nosotros este curso, en el que la Facultad  de Ciencias ha vuelto a abrir sus puertas a los Centros de Secundaria.  Encantados de participar, y mostrar nuestra investigación a estudiantes de nuestro entorno. Gracias a todos los investigadores e investigadoras que han participado en estas sesiones.
