Marta Mas-Torrent and her molecular electronics visit EINA - Centre Universitari de Disseny i Art de Barcelona
Why do students from an Art and Design University are interested in science? Well, why not? New research in materials science will have a great influence in our future devices, electronic devices, tools, objects... Materials science is everywhere! The students from EINA - Centre Universitari de Disseny i Art de Barcelona had the chance to have researcher Marta Mas-Torrent, from the NANOMOL group at ICMAB, showing the research in materials science of our Institute through the program "A researcher in your classroom" (Un investigador a la teva aula) on May 16, 2018.
She focused her talk and demo on the synthesis and preparation of new functional molecular materials for organic/molecular electronic devices, which is the topic of her research. Marta received an ERC Starting Grant in 2012 and an ERC Proof-of-Concept grant in 2014 for the study of molecular electronic devices.
