    Los metales han formado parte de la evolución de la humanidad desde la antigüedad. Han sido objeto de culto, por escasos y exclusivos, y han sido la clave del desarrollo de armas, para, progresivamente, formar parte de los ...
  • Advances on the Inductive Plasma Thruster Design for an Atmosphere-Breathing EP System 

    Romano, Francesco; Herdrichd, Georg H.; Boxberger, Adam; Rodríguez Donaire, Silvia; García-Almiñana, Daniel; Sureda Anfres, Miquel (International Astronautical Federation, 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Challenging space mission scenarios include those in very low Earth orbits, where the atmosphere creates significant drag to the S/C and forces their orbit to an early decay. For drag compensation, propulsion systems are ...
  • A Review and Gap Analysis of Exploiting Aerodynamic Forces as a Means to Control Satellite Formation Flight 

    Traub, Constantin; Romano, F.; Binder, Tilman; García-Almiñana, Daniel; Rodríguez Donaire, Silvia; Sureda Anfres, Miquel (2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Using several small, unconnected satellites flying in formation rather than a single monolithic satellite has many advantages. As an example, separate optical systems can be combined to function as a single larger (synthetic) ...
  • ³Cat-4 Mission: a 1-unit cubesat for earth observation with a L-band radiometer and a GNSS-reflectometer using software defined radio 

    Ruiz De Azúa Ortega, Juan Adrián; Muñoz Martin, Joan Francesc; Fernandez Capon, Lara Pilar; Badia Ballús, Marc; Llaveria Godoy, David; Diez Garcia, Carlos; Aguilella, Andrea; Pérez Portero, Adrián; Milián, O.; Sobrino Hidalgo, Marco; Navarro Trastoy, Ángel; Lleó, H.; Sureda Anfres, Miquel; Soria Guerrero, Manel; Calveras Augé, Anna M.; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (2019)
    Conference lecture

    Global Navigation Satellite System Reflectometry and L-band microwave radiometry have been used for soil moisture, biomass, and cryosphere studies. Combining both technologies in a low-power and cost-effective solution ...
  • Effects of applied magnetic field on IPG6-S, test-bed for an ABEP-based inductive plasma thruster (IPT) 

    Romano, Francesco; Herdrich, Georg; Binder, Tilman; García-Almiñana, Daniel; Rodríguez Donaire, Silvia; Sureda Anfres, Miquel (Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France, 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    An atmosphere-breathing electric propulsion system (ABEP) captures the residual atmosphere of a planet and uses it as propellant for an electric thruster to counteract the drag. The system would theoretically allow orbiting ...
  • High-throughput microcapillary pump with efficient integrated low aspect ratio micropillars 

    Madadi, Hojjat; Casals Terré, Jasmina; Castilla López, Roberto; Sureda Anfres, Miquel (2013-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Prediction and reduction of pressure drop and resistance flow in micropillar arrays are important for the design of microfluidic circuits used in different lab-on-a-chip and biomedical applications. In this work, a diamond ...
  • El ingenio (in)visible: desde las pioneras en ingeniería hasta la actualidad 

    Salán Ballesteros, Maria Núria; Ferrer Balas, Dídac; Amante García, Beatriz; Sureda Anfres, Miquel (2019-03-06)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    En la actualidad, hombres y mujeres accedemos a la formación en general, y a la universitaria en particular, aparentemente en paridad. Pero no en todos los ámbitos. Las titulaciones del ámbito de la tecnología muestran ...
  • In situ particle zeta potential evaluation in electroosmotic flows from time-resolved microPIV measurements 

    Sureda Anfres, Miquel; Miller, Andrew; Diez, F. J. (2012-09-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A time-resolved microPIV method is presented to measure in an EOF the particles zeta potential in situ during the transient start-up of a microdevice. The method resolves the electrophoretic velocity of fluoro-spheres used ...
