Popular Science: Paper about the Summer Campus Science 2017 and the use of ion beams at CMAM

The volume of the Spanish Journal of Physics (Vol. 31, Nº4), edited by the Spanish Royal Society of Physics, includes the paper “Guías de onda ópticas: Modificando las propiedades de la materia con un acelerador de iones”. It is an informative paper about the Summer Campus Science which took place at CMAM and it consisted of modifying various materials through the use of ion beams, generating structures called waveguides that were later characterized by the analysis of the changes in their fundamental optical properties. The students learned all the steps involved in a general scientific study and in the particular case of wave guides.


The paper describes how the students made their own waveguides, the measurements carried out by them and the physical phenomenon studied.



Open day in Physics Degree

CMAM participates in the Open day in Physics Degree organized by the Faculty od Sciences for high school and IVET students that will take place on 20th December 2017. As a part of day, which it includes visits to different deparments of UAM Physics, the students will visit the accelerator and will be able to carry out a small illustrative experiment using the accelerator and specially our Internal Microbeam line.

XVII Science week

imagen semana ciencia en acelerador 2017The Science Week is organized by the General Directorate for Universities and Research of the Community of Madrid, through Madri+d Foundation for Knowledge and its aim is to encourage the development of harmonious relations between science and society, and contribute to scientists reflect critically with the concerns of society. This year the Science Week of Madrid slogan is "Madrid vive la Ciencia".

CMAM is going to participate once more in the "XVII Semana de la Ciencia", organizing an open days to show the accelerator hosted at the "Universidad Autónoma de Madrid". This activity includes a conference about the research conducted with the ion accelerator at CMAM and a visit to the hall of the accelerator.


The activity is going to take place in November 16th, 18:00-20:00

If you are interested in this activity, you can make a book on: 91 497 3219 or email: visitas.cmam@uam.es

New master degree in Nuclear Physics

Mª Jimena de Hita Fdz., student of the interuniversity master degree in Nuclear Physics, defends at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid the work which she has done at the CMAM about "Simultaneous analysis with Helix beam of PIXE and RBS in materials of interest in Archeology". This work has been carried out under the direction of Aurelio Climent Font and it has consisted in the application of the PIXE and RBS nuclear techniques for the characterization of four Glass pieces from the glass museum of the Ely cathedral, being an example of the Nuclear Physics applications in disciplines such as Art and Archeometry.
