Institut de Ciències Fotòniques

The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Barcelona Tech (UPC) is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research, specialised in the fields of engineering, architecture and science.


The activity that goes on at UPC campuses and schools has made the University a benchmark institution. The University harnesses the potential of basic and applied research, and transfers technology and knowledge to society. These actions make the UPC—in partnership with the productive fabric—an agent and driver of economic and social change.


Our researchers are working in laboratories and research centres to increase scientific production, to promote its social value through the transfer of resultsto continue to lead international projects of excellence on our own initiative or in collaboration with research centres and universities around the world.

    This thesis reports the experimental study of two-component Bose-Einstein condensates with tunable interactions, which are exploited as a platform to perform quantum simulation of many-body quantum systems. To perform ...
  • Gellings, Esther (Date of defense: 21-02-2020)
    At room temperature, individual molecules can be found in different conformations due to intrinsic and extrinsic factors which are reflected in spectral variability. When detecting single molecules, the ensemble average ...
  • De Vega Esteban, Sandra (Date of defense: 17-02-2020)
    Ever since the advent of modern technology, major developments have come hand in hand with miniaturization and speed of operation. A proof of this is provided by the impressive success of Moore's law, which predicted that ...
  • De Bonis, Sergio Lucio (Date of defense: 06-02-2020)
    Carbon nanotube (CNT) mechanical resonators are unique systems because they combine remarkable mechanical properties with rich charge transport characteristics. Thanks to their intrinsically low-dimensional nature, their ...
  • Sánchez Peacham, Daniel Alexander (Date of defense: 27-01-2020)
    The continuous development of laser sources delivering ultra-short light pulses underpins much of the current progress in experimental science, particularly in the domain of physics concerned with strong-field phenomena. ...
