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 researchers from Cedenna’s Physical-Chemical Line, Carmen Pizarro and Mauricio Escudey, had an outstanding participation at the 15thLatin American Conference on the Application of the Mössbauer Effect (Lacame-2016), which took place in Panama. Dr.
Escudey attended as an invited speaker and discussed the potential applications of Mössbauer spectroscopy in the study of transporting iron nanoparticles in soil. Dr. Pizarro attended the conference in her role as the Chilean representative of the Latin American Committee of Lacame and also made a presentation on assessing pH in the efficiency of absorbing contaminants like arsenic in aqueous systems.
In the framework of this committee, Chile was chosen as the site for next meeting, which will take place at the University of Santiago in 2018, with Dr. Pizarro chairing the organizing committee. The Lacame Conference addresses a wide of matters of academic and industrial interest related to the study of iron-based structures, mainly employing spectroscopy.
