The research group of ‘Physics of Interfaces and Colloidal Systems’ of the Universidad de Granada, headed by professors Fernando González Caballero and Juan de Dios García Durán, works on producing fluids with properties that change when an external magnetic field is applied, as in the case of a magnet. These are known as “intelligent fluids” and can be used in several areas, from hard industry to orthopaedic medicine and implants.The fluids mentioned above consist of (...)
The Universidad de Granada (UGR) and the Spanish Challenge for 2007 America’s Cup will remain historically linked, thanks to an agreement in which the University becomes the technical collaborator of the team representing Spain in the most important sail competition in the world. The technicians of the Wind Engineering Department of the Andalusian Centre for the Environment (CEAMA), coordinated by José María Terrés-Nicoli, will test the sensors of the ships participating in next year’s competition, (...)
Who discovered and analysed geometrical objects such as the square and the circle? According to several studies, geometry started in Egypt. The seasonal flooding of the Nile led farmers to measure the areas in order to know which plot of land belonged to each farmer after the floods receded. Geometry (from the Greek ‘geo’, earth and ‘metrein’, to measure), is the branch from Mathematics which studies the properties of space, and Isabel Fernández Delgado, a (...)
The fight against drugs if the different sport disciplines is one of the main objectives of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), to which the group ‘Analytical, environmental, biochemical and food control’ of the department of Analytical Chemistry of the Universidad de Granada has contributed. The researchers, directed by professors Alberto Fernández Gutiérrez and Antonio Segura Carretero, have designed an optical sensor that allows to determine the presence of propanolol (a beta inhibitor used as (...)
A team of scientists of the University of Granada has developed a new analysis technique that will guarantee the restoration and preservation of the oldest manuscripts of the city, relegated up to now to the lowest position. The method, developed by researchers of the departments of Painting and Analytical Chemistry in collaboration with the Institute of Materials Sciences of Seville, and the archives of the Royal Chancellery of Granada, Provincial Historic Museum of Granada and (...)
Capillary electrophoresis is a technique that has been successfully applied in the identification and determination of a great amount of chemical compounds, the analysis of biomolecules with a high molecular weight and tests of separation of living cells, in fields such as food, environment, clinical and forensic analysis and proteomics.The book published by the Universidad de Granada Press under the title “Capillary electroforesis: an approach from the detection technique”, coordinated by the professors of Analytical (...)
The Group of Electromagnetism of the University of Granada, from the department of Electromagnetism and Matter Physics, has been doing research for several years on the applications of fractal technology to radio-communication systems.Specifically, in the design of antennas by means of numeric formulas applied to describe certain complex geometries. Their work has managed to develop small-sized antennas in a research work honoured by the Information Society and Media, an organism of the European Union (UE), (...)
A research group of the University of Granada, supervised by the professor of astrophysics Eduardo Battaner, has been analysing the mechanisms of the origin and functioning of the universe for more than fifteen years. The main object of his studio is the influence of magnetic fields in the formation, assessment and structures of the galaxies, which has lead them to prepare the biggest catalogue of visible warps in the world, with more than 150 of (...)
We only have to read the labels of many commercial products to find colorants among their components. They are natural or synthetic additives authorised by food security regulations and used to colour food and drinks in an artificial way. A research team of the universities of Granada, Jaén and Almería have devised a process to obtain a natural colorant from the micro-algae Porphyridium cruentum.High performanceMany marine algae are rich in proteins with fluorescent properties. They (...)
The universe will be a bit closer to Earth within a few months. World’s greatest telescope, the Great Telescope Canary Islands (Grantecan), is gathering momentum to “come to light” (this is, to be used for the first time to observe the firmament), and the Universidad de Granada is present in this big project. The professor of Astrophysics Eduardo Battaner has participated since 1999 in the Grantecan Monitoring Commission, one of the greatest works of Spanish (...)
