The 20th century brought with it some amazing scientific discoveries which allowed to find out the composition and shape of matter when in crystal form, thereby marking the beginning of modern crystallography.
After 100 years of unstoppable development, crystallography became the leading discipline for studying atomic structure and the properties of all kinds of simple or complex materials, marking advances in many frontier fields in science, from the Physics and Chemistry of Condensed Matter to Biology and Biomedicine.
Martín Martínez Ripoll, CSIC research professor, will host a talk entitled ‘Through the crystal: A history with contrasts, full of Nobel laureates’ on Thursday, 27 November, in the Oteiza lecture room at the Bizkaia Aretoa of the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU. Entry is free.
This talk closes the series on crystallography and X-rays organised by the Chair of Scientific Culture of the UPV/EHU to celebrate the International Year of Crystallography.
