New Thin Solid Films papers

Recently, we managed to publish three new articles in our prefereed journal Thin Solid Films, look what they are about:

  1. Comparison of the growth of Bismuth thin films using different vapor deposition techniques; a nice collaboration work product of our BisNano project.
  2. Optical properties of La2O3 thin films, a challenging material to achieved and whose optical properties are not very well known. It is also the result of a collaboration with CICATA-Tampico.
  3. Photocatalytic properties of beta-Bi2O3 thin films produced by spray pyrolisis, but the new idea was to deposit the films on Silica filters to enhance the surface area. It is a product from our International Collaboration project PHOCSCLEEN.

Dr. Cecilia Barrera and friends


Congratulations to Cecy

Last Friday, May 12th, Cecilia Barrera finish her PhD.


2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.
