Euclid dark Universe mission ready to take shape

  • Euclid, ESA's dark Universe mission, has passed its preliminary design review.
  • IFAE participates in the NISP Filter Wheel Assembly, in simulation and scinec eperformance studies.

Detecten raigs gamma molt energètics produïts fa 7 mil milions d'anys a la galàxia activa PKS1441 +25

• Estudiar la llum que ens arriba d'aquesta galàxia llunyana ens aporta informació de l'evolució de l'Univers.
• Tres telescopis diferents participen en la troballa: els Telescopis MAGIC de la Palma, el satèl·lit Fermi de la NASA i els telescopis VERITAS a Arizona (USA)
• Investigadors de l'Institut de Física d'Altes Energies (IFAE) participen en l'estudi juntament amb altres centres de l'estat com l'IAC o l'UCM.

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology's mission is to promote cutting-edge research in science and technology within an environment of multidisciplinary scientific excellence. Its scientific community is made up of members of the participating research centers: the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ), the Catalan Institute for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), the High Energy Physics Institute (IFAE) and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine(IRB Barcelona).

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology's aims are:

1. To contribute towards improving conditions for carrying out high-quality research at the research centers and to increase its international visibility.

2. To offer coordinated postgraduate programs of excellence with international impact.

3. To build a critical mass to multiply the capacity of the research centers in different fields, such as knowledge transfer, scientific and technological platforms and talent attraction.

4. To cooperate with scientific institutions, companies, individuals and public or private entities to fulfill these aims.

Our Systems

1. Microelectronics assembly line:


Solder bump deposition

A SB2-SM machine provides bumps with different alloys such as Sn Ag in a range from 40 to 760 microns.


Bump bonding

A Suss FC-150 machine is used for the complex process of flip-chipping. High-density interconnections of solder bumps of typical 25 micron diameter can be achieved with this technique.

Reflow Oven

An AVT oven is used for reflow soldering of surface mount electronic components to printed circuit boards (PCB) or other substrates.

Device assembly

The Finetech pick and place machine provides 5 micron positioning precision.


An automatic Delvotec G5 bonder offers solutions for the most demanding integration needs.

2. Asembly quality control and characterization



X-Ray inspection machine

Inspection of assemblies using an x-ray system of sub-micron resolution. 

Probe station

Electrical characterization of microelectronic devices.

 Pull and shear bond tester

The DAGE 4000 Plus system is a multipurpose bond-tester used to ensure the qualityof the critical interconnections.

COLLOQUIUM - Simulating the proton

Friday, 27 November 2015 at 14:30 - - Seminar room

Speaker: Gunnar Bali (Regensburg U)

 Abstract: Almost all the known mass of the universe can be attributed to nuclei, i.e. bound states of nucleons (protons and neutrons). These are made up of quarks and gluons, that strongly interact according to the laws of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). QCD constitutes the theoretically cleanest and most solid component of the present standard model of elementary particles and their (strong and electroweak) interactions. This "model" leaves many questions unanswered and we may well learn about yet to be discovered fundamental theories from studying its cleanest part, i.e. QCD.
