CEDENNA organizes numerous outreach activities, including conferences, talks, competitions, schools, seminars and exhibitions, to present its work to the general community, generating greater interest in science among the youth of our country.
The Scientific Committee of the Second School on Magnetism at the University of Santiago awarded the students Walter Cañón, Pascal Toro and Boris Leighton for presenting the best posters in this event that brought together more than 60 university students on the theme of magnetism.
In making their selection, the Committee, composed of José d’Albuquerque e Castro, Eugenio Coronado and Antonio Azevedo, considered design, presentation and the relevance of the research to the field.
The titles of the works and the teams involved in their preparation were the following:
“Magnetic Characterization of [Fe3O-(CH3-CO2)6(CH3-CO-NH2)3][FeCl4]” by Walter Cañón-Mancisidor, Patricio Hermosilla, Diego Venegas-Yazigi, Evgenia Spodine, Verónica Paredes-García, Andrés Vega, and Eric Le Fur.
“Reversion modes in asymmetric magnetic nanowires: Evidence of magnetic drops” by Boris Leighton, Alejandro Pereira and Juan Escrig.
“Production and characterization of magnetic films and antidotes using thermal evaporation” by Pascal Toro, Cecilia Gallardo, Juan Luis Palma, Roberto Lavín and Juliano C. Denardin
Pascal Toro, a student from Physics Engineering of USACH, stated that it was a great surprise and pleased to receive recognition for this work because it was well criticized and evaluated by the international committee, which appreciated the value of the work, although it is still at an initial stage with much remaining to be done.
“The opportunity to interact and share experiences with counterparts and professors who have undertaken varied and interesting works represents an invaluable experience, given that it provides us with an enriching scientific environment that encourages us to continue contributing to science with our grain of sand”, stated on the award recipients.
The event, organized by the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and by the Millennium Nucleus on Basic and Applied Magnetism, provided the possibility for students to learn about the basic concepts of magnetism and current research on the theme.
