Featured paper

A scientific team headed by researchers from the Brazilian Institute for Space Research (INPE) bypassed, applying a simple method, a characteristic of topological insulators that limits the possibilities of studying these promising materials for technological applications. The study was reported in a paper published in APL Materials. See our news story.

People from the community

We interviewed three young PhDs from the Materials community whose doctoral works were recognized in December, in the 2016 Capes Thesis Award: Antonio Cláudio Padilha, Fernanda Fiegenbaum and Flávio Camargo Cabrera. They talked about the award-winning doctoral theses and left messages for students doing research in this area. Here are the interviews.

We also interviewed Gleison Adriano da Silva, recently graduated in Physics from the Federal University of Amazonas, who won the scientific initiation research award from CNPq in 2016, and also other distinctions for his work on the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured semiconductor materials. Learn more about this young researcher and his award-winning work. 

Professor Elvira Fortunato (New University of Lisbon, Portugal) will receive the 2017 Czochralski Award, awarded by the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) together with Polish scientific societies. Click here for more information.
