How to see small at the big scale

Who hasn’t looked at the sky on a clear night to admire the moon? As humans, we are curious and we like to observe the world that surrounds us. There are lots of things that can be observed with our bare-eyes but this doesn’t stop us to wander into the unknown. Microscopes and telescopes allow us to observe small things that are close to us (microscopes) or big things that are far away from us (telescopes). As a nano-scientist, I want to dwell into the small-unknown and go through the history and relevance of microscopy in today’s world.

Lightweight and flexible solar modules

Finding alternative and clean energy resources has become one of the most urgent missions for the modern science and technology against an energy system mostly based on fossil fuels. The photovoltaics technology is a promising and sustainable solution for the energy transition to zero-carbon emissions. Nowadays, research and investment are developing thinner and high-efficient PVs devices in order to achieve competitive costs and make these products accessible to a broader market. This technology also distinguishes itself for the lightweight feature, allowing the enhancement and scaling up of solar modules processing and manufacture.

Dark energy

The expansion of the universe is driven by a misterious force that, for lack of a better name, we call “dark energy”. The answer to what dark energy really is, or even if it really exists, has important repercusions to basic understanding of reality and space-time.

Microbial metabolic diversity occurring in the soil

We investigate how microbes sense and respond to their environment and interact with other organisms, and harness Nature's Biodiversity to discover novel bioactive molecules and enzymes, which find application in the clinical trajectory and in biotechnology.
