BYAXON IN THE PUBS - PINT OF SCIENCE 201922nd May 2019
The project ByAxon has been the star at the "Tech me out" sessions of Pint of Science in Spain. Mª Concepción Serrano (ICMM-CSIC) and Lucas Pérez (IMDEA Nanociencia) have participated this Wednesday 22nd of May on two different meetings in the cities of Madrid and Toledo, respectively. In both cases, the pubs helding the event had a full house, about 150 attendees in total. Our researchers Serrano and Pérez demonstrated their excellent skills in science communication and in turn, the public responded with a prolific questions session.
Pint of Science was an initiative of two researchers at Imperial College (London) that quickly reached the category of Festival in UK in 2013. From that year on, the Festival has been held in an increasing number of cities around the globe. This year 2019, over 300 cities from 24 countries have participated in Pint of Science.

BYAXON INVITED TO THE FET SEMINAR IN BRUSSELS6th February 2019
The project ByAxon was invited to the FET Seminar, that takes place periodically at the European Comission's premises at Covent Garden Building in Brussels. Prof. Rodolfo Miranda, researcher and PI of the project, gave an overview of the goals and progress of the project followed by a discussion and questions.

Research engineer in instrumentation and magnetismApplication deadline: 2nd September 2019
A magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) microscope has already been developed and is used in the lab. Apart from it, magnetoresistance (MR) and low frequency noise are measured in a separate four-probe set-up with a variable temperature stage. The role of the engineer will be to add the possibility of measuring simultaneously MOKE properties (magnetic hysteresis cycles, coercive or anisotropy field), MR and low frequency noise in the MOKE set-up. In addition, two new features have to be developed: regulation of the temperature in the 300 – 330 K range, and rotation of samples during measurements.
The assignment will entail:
- Electronics readout design and tests
- Labview programing
- Characterization of various samples fabricated in the project
