AlphaGalileo launches new Spanish service

AlphaGalileo Foundation and Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT), the Spanish science and technology organisation, have launched a Spanish version of the AlphaGalileo news service – for Spanish–speaking researchers and journalists.

The new website has been created to disseminate news from Spain and news written in the Spanish language more effectively and, to help promote research from the 200+ research and higher-education institutions in Spain.

The AlphaGalileo Foundation and FECYT partnership will include exchanges of best-practice to assist press office staff to promote news from Spain to the worldwide audience of journalists registered with the AlphaGalileo service.

“Spanish is the second widest-spoken language worldwide and this new website takes advantage of this to reach even wider audiences via the trusted AlphaGalileo interface,” said Stephen Brain, Chief Executive of AlphaGalileo Foundation.

“Working closely with in-country partners to promote research news from that country is a model which benefits a wide audience. We very much hope to extend this model in other countries throughout Europe.”

"We aim to project internationally Spanish research and help to achieve a better understanding of advances in Spanish R&D" commented Eulalia Pérez Sedeño, General Director of FECYT.

Based in FECYT's Madrid office, the AlphaGalileo Spain project will promote research from Spanish–speaking researchers. Under this agreement, all Spanish researchers gain free and unlimited access to the AlphaGalileo service.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
