Alba: open day, workshop and last results
On Saturday 29th of June 2019, from 09:00 to 19:00, the ALBA Synchrotron celebrates its Open Day. Visitors can explore the facility and discover its applications, as well as participate in hands-on experiments and activities for all ages.

But Alba also invites companies to explain its potential: on next May 31, ALBA organizes a workshop dedicated to the polymer industry: ALBA allows obtaining nanoscopic information of polymers such as plastics, adhesives, materials for 3D printing and biomedicine, etc. (free egistration here).

Let’s take advantage of this news to highlight, among many, two examples of the latest results that Alba allows to obtain, one taken in the health sector and another in the energy/materials sector:
  • An international collaboration led by Idibell describes in Nature Communications a new muscular disease caused by a mutation. Thanks to ALBA MIRAS beamline, researchers could demonstrate the presence of oxidized lipids in the damaged muscle cells.
  • On the other hand, in an international research work published in Advanced Energy Materials, MSPD and CLAESS ALBA beam lines contributed to better understand the synthesis of new materials designed for the next generation of lithium ion batteries by determining the structural and chemical changes.
