Self-evaluation and decision-making by three teachers with the EVALOE- SSD application to improve the oral communicative competence of their students

Mercedes Pérez

In school education teaching and learning the linguistic competence (speaking and listening) to communicate and build knowledge requires specific actions. Considering that the development of technologies allows to improve the teaching and learning of school contents, an application was built, the EVALOE-SSD (Scale of Assessment of the Teaching of the Oral Language in School Context – System of Support for …

Acousto-optic deflectors applied as high performance spatial light modulators

Dorian Treptow

Spatial light modulators are a key tool for modern applications and research in the field of optics. A variety of light modulator technologies exist that serve for different applications according to their properties. Acousto-optic deflectors (AODs) are light modulating devices that have a wide range of applications because of their immense speed and accuracy. Their main functionality is the deflection …

Unraveling the immune system participation in therapy response in GL261 glioblastoma: correlation with MRSI-based molecular imaging techniques

Pilar Calero

The participation of the immune system in therapy response is a key element in successful cancer treatment. The preclinical GL261 glioblastoma (GB) is an immunocompetent model that can provide tools for assessing immune system participation in therapy response. Our group has developed a noninvasive method for therapy response follow-up in GL261 GB based in Magnetic resonance spectrocopy imaging (MRSI) acquisitions and …

Analysis of multichannel respiratory sounds under different respiratory maneuvers in healthy subjects and pulmonary disease patients

Jasna Nuhic

Different lung function tests are used to determine how well lungs work. One of the most widely used is spirometry, a standardized procedure that measures the lung volume and airflow. However, results of conventional lung function tests are highly affected and consequently limited by experience and hearing ability of clinical professionals. These limitations have been the subject of research for …

Plasma catalysis for CO2 methanation: catalyst and reactor optimization

Marti Biset Peiro

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions represent a huge environmental problem. Despite this, CO2 could be used as feedstock for many products, being a high abundant resource. These two facets of CO2 have resulted in a growing interest on the conversion of CO2 into add-value product to contribute to a circular economy. In this regard, a promising option is the hydrogenation of …

Hidden hydrodynamic effects on phonon heat transport

Albert Beardo Ricol

In the last years, it has been demonstrated that heat transport in some 2D materials like graphene could be described by the appearance of hydrodynamic behavior. In bulk materials like silicon this contribution can be more subtle and can remain hidden inside the calculations or even numerically removed. The Kinetic Collective Model (KCM) has been especially developed to provide the …

Development of RTP processes for advanced Cu2ZnSnSe4 solar cells

Alejandro Hernández-Martínez

This work describes the results obtained on the implementation of Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) selenisation strategies for the fabrication of Cu2ZnSnSe4 based solar cells. This semiconductor belongs to the family of compounds known as kesterites, which are receiving a growing interest because of their potential for the development of cost-efficient sustainable PV technologies. Kesterites are compounds of the type Cu2ZnSn(S,Se)4 …

Design of complex advanced inorganic nanocrystals for energy transformation and storage

Jana Oliveras

Inspired by nature, capture and conversion of solar energy in a chemical product for energy storage and conversion is studied in artificial photosynthesis. While in biological systems catalytic processes are accomplished by proteins, in artificial photosynthesis inorganic catalysts transform target molecules into solar fuels. A model case is the process of water splitting, where photo-catalysts are employed to convert the …

Low-cost metamaterials with negative refractive index

Mayte Gómez Castaño

Metamaterials have attracted a great deal of attention over the recent decades because of the exotic electromagnetic phenomena that they can present. Their unconventional properties do not derive from their chemical composition but rather from their artificially engineered physical structure. Therefore, the proper design of their geometry and size can enable the appearance of new optical properties not found in …
