Abstract: OneWeb Satellites consists of the design, development, construction and launch of a megaconstellation of 900 satellites, with the aim of providing global high-speed Internet connection. OneWeb Satellites is a company founded by Airbus and OneWeb, for the design and production of this constellation. The first six satellites of the OneWeb megaconstellation flew successfully from the Guiana Space Center on February 27th and are now orbiting around Earth at 1,000 km.
Solar MEMS Technologies participates in this Project as official supplier of the sun sensors for the satellites of the constellation. These miniaturized units are mentioned to detect the Sun position while in orbit to let the satellite gets correctly oriented during different scenarios. Solar MEMS has designed and developed a customized sun sensor fulfilling OneWeb Satellites requirements, with an initial order of more than 1800 units to be integrated in the satellites of the constellation.
For this purpose, the sun sensors supplied by SolarMEMS to OneWeb Satellites are equipped with silicon photodiodes designed and fabricated by D+T Microelectrónica A.I.E. at IMB-CNM (CSIC). Today more than 4000 Si-photodiodes have been manufactured by D+T, covering more than 36 wafers, and has completed a test campaign including radiation tests per wafer, thermal tests, life tests and mechanical vibrations. Additionally, lot of data has been collected by Solar MEMS to do a deep data analysis and scientific comparison, allowing a new way for industrial and technical analysis never done before in Space Industry.
Scientific Meeting of BNC-b Students
The "Scientific Meeting of BNC-b Students" organized by PhD fellows and open to undergraduate, master students and PhD researchers, comes back in 2019! The meeting is aimed to present the work performed by PhD students of the whole Barcelona Nanotechnology Cluster – Bellaterra (ICMAB, ICN2, IMB-CNM, UAB, ALBA), promoting collaborations between them in an academic and scientific environment. The meeting will be held at ICMAB and ICN2 on 6-7 June 2019. Abstracts and registration deadline: 26 April 2019. Will you miss it?.
Growing originally from the “1st Meeting of ICMAB Students” in 2011, the “Scientific Meeting of BNC-b Students" was established successfully as an organized networking and dissemination platform in its first three editions in the years 2015, 2016 and 2017. We are pleased to announce the comeback of the conference in 2019.
The "4th Scientific Meeting of BNC-b Students" is aimed to present the work performed by PhD students of the whole Barcelona Nanotechnology Cluster – Bellaterra (ICMAB, ICN2, IMB-CNM, UAB, ALBA), promoting collaborations between them in an academic and scientific environment.
The event incorporates the entire framework of the UAB Research Park, as well as other universities as UB or UPC. Moreover, it is also opened to undergraduates, master students and the scientific community at large.
The meeting structure of the 4th edition will include the usual oral presentations and posters. Furthermore, we will invite high profile speakers to share with us their experience working in companies, as magazine editors or in the world of divulgation. They will also talk about the skills acquired during the PhD that can be useful outside the academic world, so this event represents a good chance to meet people who have already followed this path and who can give you good advice.
Here you will have the opportunity to meet other PhD students, and share your experience and research from different nanoscience areas.
The program is organized into different topics, all related to the "nano universe", allowing you to focus on your specialty as well as expand your knowledge in other areas. Attendees will be able to learn from over 50 different researches, including oral sessions, poster presentations, invited speakers and a round table, and also have fun with some monologues related with the scientific world.
The speakers will have 10-15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes to answer possible questions. The talks will be in English. Don't worry if you don't have a good level, the best place to practice is this friendly environment.
The best oral and poster presentations at the conference will be prized. They will be judged during the sessions and prizes & certificates will be delivered to the winners during the conclusion of the meeting.
Registration is open until April 26, 2019 on this link.
