The new volume of the Revista Española de Física (Vol. 29, N.3), edited by the Spanish Royal Society of Physics, includes the paper “La canalización iónica en cristales: cuando la sobra de los átomos permite detectar defectos”, written by Andrés Redondo Cubero, researcher at CMAM. It is an informative article celebrating the 50º aniversary of the theoretical formulation (by Jens Lindhard) of ion channelling phenomenon.

This is one of the ion beam techniques available at CMAM for the analysis of crystalline materials, especially powerful for the detection of impurities, defects and amorphous layers.
