BROWNIAN MOTION IN THE MEDIA
Press coverage of the our recent paper about the measurement of the instantaneous ballistic velocity of Brownian nanocrystals suspended in both aqueous and organic solvents. To achieve this, we develop a technique based on upconversion nanothermometry.
PROTOTYPES in THE EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS NIGHT
The GFHybrids participated in the last European Researchers Night held in Fabrica da Ciencia of Aveiro.
The group was represented by the Luminescent Thermometry and Luminescent Solar Concentrators presented by Carlos Brites and Sandra Correia, respectively. The European Researchers Night is an public event promoted by the European Union dedicated to popular science and fun learning. It takes place each year on the last Friday in September. More than 30 countries and over 300 cities are involved.
