This image bank has been designed by Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading of the Andalusian Ministry of Innovation, Science and Enterprise, and is coordinated by the Science Park of Granada.
Sciencepics is, in terms of volume of images, the first regional image bank in Spain. Sciencepics aims to become a useful tool to complement the various spreading and training actions carried out both by education centres (from primary education centres to universities), mass media and science and innovation spreading agents.
Sciencepics will provide visual support for scientific-related knowledge in digital (websites, CDs, etc.) or in print format.
Sciencepics is very easy to use- Images are grouped using as a reference the sectorial classification of research groups in Andalucía: Agriculture and Nutrition, Life Sciences, Health Sciences and Technology, Natural Resources and Environment, Economics, Social Sciences and Law, Humanities, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, Production Technologies, and Information and Communications Technologies. To download the images, users only need to key in the desired terms in the search engine.
Sciencepics contents are free, open and universal, and complement the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading as a news agency since last 9 January. This service -also free of charge- already has 1,800 subscriptions for the Spanish version and 2,000 for the English version.
Sciencepics aims to be a cooperative tool, which can evolve thanks to contributions from other institutions and private individuals. The Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading will update the portal weekly. It will also be open to other institutions willing to share their image catalogues. To this end, a CD containing the selected photographs must be sent to the Andalusian Programme of Scientific Spreading.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
