Within the aim of MATERIAIS 2017– the XVIII Portuguese Society Congress, VIII International Symposium
on Materials, that will be held at the University of Aveiro from 9 to 12 April this year, to bring science
solutions to the world, the SHOW CASE is a Technology Exhibition based on scientific development that
aims to show R&D results in the form of prototypes / demonstrations that exhibit the added value for
established or newly created industries as well as new and promising areas of application.
The deadline for abstract submission is February 28th, 2017. Don´t miss the deadline.
“Designing nanocomposites using supercritical CO2 to insert Ni nanoparticles into the pores of nanopatterned BaTiO3 thin films”.
A new concept to prepare nanocomposite thin films is explored. Two chemical-based bottom-up steps are used to design functional films including (i) the block copolymer-assisted self-assembly of a porous matrix; and (ii) the impregnation of nanoparticles from a ferroic phase into the pores by supercritical CO2 deposition. Porous nanopatterned BaTiO3 thin films with ca. 17 nm thickness are prepared using a cost-effective sol–gel solution containing a block copolymer and evaporation-induced self-assembly methodology. Hexagonally arranged pores with a diameter of ca. 95 nm, running perpendicular to the substrate, are filled with Ni nanoparticles using the supercritical fluid deposition technique, obtained from the reduction of hydrated nickel nitrate in a supercritical CO2–ethanol mixture at 250 1C. Small Ni nanoparticles of 21 5 nm size are selectively deposited inside the pores of the porous matrix. Structural and magnetic properties prove the coexistence of both phases.
“GOSTO DO QUE FAÇO, É A MINHA PAIXÃO”
Formada em Engenharia Cerâmica e do Vidro e doutorada em Ciência e Engenharia de Materiais, Paula Vilarinho é uma profissional reconhecida na sua área, nacional e internacionalmente. É presidente da Sociedade Portuguesa de Materiais (SPM), professora na Universidade de Aveiro e Investigadora do Laboratório Associado, Centro de Investigação em Materiais Cerâmicos e Compósitos (CICECO). Por que valores se pautam a sua vida pessoal e profissional em prol deste complexo currículo?
Há valores que estão presentes na minha vida que me foram transmitidos pelos meus pais e alguns excelentes educadores, e que, claramente, determinam o meu comportamento pessoal e profissional. Ética, caráter, dignidade, honestidade, honra, frontalidade, transparência, responsabilidade e comprometimento, são alguns dos valores com que me identifico e, pelos quais luto diariamente.
Do ponto de vista profissional há uns quantos outros aspetos comportamentais que julgo regerem o meu desempenho.
Para além de uma alguma “hiperactividade”, acho que muito do que faço se associa a uma certa Ingenuidade, pois acredito que posso contribuir para ajudar “a mudar o mundo”. Nas minhas atividades talvez haja também alguma ousadia, gosto pela diferença e mudança; na verdade sinto-me estimulada pelo desafio. Dizem que sou uma obcecada por tudo quanto faço, mas eu acho que é mais paixão, pois de uma forma geral gosto muitíssimo do que faço.

Manuela Fernandes, Ph.D student of the Advanced Materials and Processing doctoral program (AdvaMTech) at the Department of Materials and Ceramic Engineering, was awarded by Alemnis GmbH at the 13th FEMS Junior Euromat Conference, as the best oral presentation in the area of functional materials. The conference was held in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 10 to 14 July, 2016.
Junior Euromat is the main event for young materials scientists organized by the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS). Junior Euromat takes place every two years and joins master and Ph.D students, post-docs and young scientists from all over the world. The conference is divided in 6 different areas: Functional Materials; Structural Materials; Design, Processing, Manufacturing & Recycling; Energy, Transportation and Environment; Life Science and Health; and Modelling and Characterization. Also a panel discussion with stakeholders from industry, research and european organizations takes place in the end of the conference.
The awarded work entitled “Microstructural evolution of K0.5Na0.5NbO3 thin films by in-situ TEM sintering”, was developed between the University of Aveiro, with supervision of Ana Senos and Paula Vilarinho, and the University of Texas at Austin, with supervision of Paulo Ferreira, within the UT Austin|Portugal program. The aim of this work is to study a lead-free material to substitute Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) for piezoelectric applications. The advanced characterization by in-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) was performed in the University of Texas at Austin.
‘Thermodynamic stability of lead-free alkali niobate and tantalate perovskites’ by Sulata K. Sahu, Sebastian Zlotnik, Alexandra Navrotsky, Paula M. Vilarinho, J.Mater.Chem.C,2015, 3, 7691 was selected as a Hot Article for 2015 and as such it has been included in the Hot Article 2015 web collection for Journal of Materials Chemistry C which can be viewed here.
