The students received a short talk about the ICMAB and nanotechnology from Anna May, and then visited the Nanoquim Platform (with Marta Gerbolés) and the Soft Lab (with David Piña). This class was formed by 25 students. The students had visited the ALBA Synchrotron beforehand, and some of them also visited the ICN2. Thanks to Rosa Manau for contacting us!
