UNIVERSITY STUDENTS GET TO KNOW BYAXON PROJECT5th July 2019
Students from the Summer Course "Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" of Alcalá de Henares University (Madrid) visited the "Neural Interfaces" laboratory at IMDEA Nanociencia, where ByAxon researchers explained the aims of the project. The post-doc and PhD students Isidoro Martínez, Beatriz Rodilla, Arturo Vera and Ana Arché engaged with the students in two parallel groups to show the nanostructure of the bypass and the magnetic sensory part of the device.
BYAXON AT THE EARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS WORKSHOP27th June 2019
Our partners Ana Domínguez (ICMM-CSIC), Ana Arché and Beatriz Rodilla (IMDEA) have presented their research at the Early Stage Researchers Workshop in Nanoscience, held at IMDEA Nanociencia (Madrid) on the 26-27th June 2019.
The worshop, aimed to young scientists, gathered 120 attendants from several research institutions in Spain. Our partners had the opportunity to present their works around the project ByAxon to a large audience and discuss with the scientific community about their results. Ana Domínguez contributed with an oral presentation, while Beatriz Rodilla and Ana Arché presented a poster.
Our partner Beatriz Rodilla won the prize to the Best Poster Presentation, awarded with a voucher by the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Nanoscale. Congratulations!
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
