  • Dark energy hides behind phantom fields Español

    SINC | 25 March 2014 11:19

    Quintessence and phantom fields, two hypotheses formulated using data from satellites, such as Planck and WMAP, are among the many theories that try to explain the nature of dark energy. Now researchers from Barcelona and Athens suggest that both possibilities are only a mirage in the observations and it is the quantum vacuum which could be behind this energy that moves our universe.

  • New magnetic materials for extracting energy from tides Español

    Nuevos materiales magnéticos para extraer energía de las mareas  

    UC3M | 24 March 2014 17:30

    Scientists from Universidad Carlos III in Madrid (UC3M) are participating in a European research project that involves developing a new type of tidal energy generator that will be cheaper and more efficient. The device would replace conventional magnetic materials for new materials that are made using an alternative technology.
