Since the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona’s scientific communication website (www.uab.es/uabdivulga/eng) went online in May 2003, its aim has been to disclose research from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona to the public at large through the words of the researchers themselves. Over 200 researchers have now explained their work in a language accessible to all. From differential calculus to the latest breakthroughs in medicine, from analysis of armed conflicts to software development for biotechnology companies, and from analysis of the media to the effects of climate change, the website has published information on a multitude of topics covering the plethora of research areas covered at the University.
UABdivulg@ has also published in-depth interviews with important figures from the world of science. These include the Nobel Prize for Physics winner Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, the oncologist Manuel Perucho, the science historian Spencer R. Weart and the microbiologist Daniel Y C Fung. In the near future, the website will include a series of NEO video clips produced by the UAB in which scientific information will be disclosed.
The electronic journal, which can be read in English, Spanish and Catalan, was presented before the 8th International Conference on Public Communication of Science and Technology last June and the 2nd Ibero-American Conference on University Communication in Granada last March.

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...
Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
