Optic microscopy at the dawn of the 21st century. Exploring the limits of life
Tuesday, 2 February 2016
The detailed study of the cells that compose any living element requires developing microscopes with a very high resolution that allow for displaying their behaviour in real time. On this talk, some optic microscopy systems of the latest generation developed in the 21st century will be described in a comprehensible way. These microscopies allow for recognising details at nanometric scale, completely beating the results with the classic techniques.

May the light be with you!
Tuesday, 16 February 2016
In this conference-workshop we will talk about the nature of light, we will show how we can obtain light with electricity and with chemical reactions and how we can transform light in electricity. The explanations will be accompanied with a series of experiences to illustrate the introduced concepts.

Medical imaging. How do they see our inside?
Tuesday, 23 February 2016
The medical physics has supposed a revolution in the modern medicine. Form the finding of the X-rays, the medical imaging uses different physical properties to be able to recognise both the internal structure of the body and the function of the organs through different image modalities (radiograph, CT scan, PET, etc.). In this talk we describe in a comprehensible way the functioning of the main medical imaging techniques and we present some of their applications.

Smart Physics: Experiment with the sensors of your Smartphone
Tuesday, 1 March 2016
The increasingly wide use of smartphones and their high degree of technological sophistication puts within our reach an appropriate device to carry out a whole series of scientific demonstrations of general interest. In this conference we will show some simple experiments that can be developed by taking advantage of the simplest sensors integrated in a smartphone, such as the accelerometer, the magnet field sensor and the light sensor.
