Dr. Marie-Pierre Heck - Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission of France (CEA), France.
Anions and cations are ubiquitous in nature and play very important roles in many areas, such as biological research, clinical diagnosis, industries and environmental process. There recognition and monitoring are of primordial importance in biological mechanisms, medicine and environment.The design of anion receptors is...

Though much has been improved in the design of bulk metallic glasses since the 1960s, parts are still usually produced by casting, limiting their size to a few millimetres to centimetres in thickness due to falling cooling rates and increasing crystallisation when increasing casting diameter. This limitation has been the greatest impediment to the use of BMGs as structural parts and tools, despite their advantageous properties. Only recently...


Dr. Wojciech Nogala - Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences Warsaw, Poland.
Nanostructured metallic catalysts are usually obtained by homogeneous synthesis. Then one needs to apply capping agents to stop the growth of nanostructures and prevent their aggregation. Capping agents affect the catalytic properties of such prepared nanostructures by hindering access of reactants to the catalyst surface. Electrochemical methods allow...


Dr. Misaki Ozawa - Interdisciplinary Physics Lab at the University of Grenoble Alpes, France.
For a long time, physicists have determined Hamiltonian for a given problem by following a bottom-up approach starting from physical principles such as symmetry. Nowadays, thanks to a large amount of data available, it has become possible to estimate Hamiltonian by machine learning, i.e., inferring it from a large dataset of observations from experiments or simulations. The majority of physical systems...


NOMATEN staff participated in the NUMAT conference held in Ghent, Belgium from 24th till 28th October. The Nuclear Materials Conference (NuMat) was created in 2012 in association with the Journal of Nuclear Materials to serve as an umbrella for international meetings on nuclear materials science related to fission and fusion reactors and the overall nuclear fuel cycle.
