PAPETS stands out in ICT
by IT on 29-10-2015
Project PAPETS, developed at IT, had a presence in the ICT exhibition.
The project “Phonon-Assisted Processes for Energy Transfer and Sensing aims at exploring the newly emerging frontier between biology and quantum physics, to determine the role of coherent vibrational dynamics in the efficiency of energy storage in natural and artificial light harvesting systems, as well as in odour recognition.”
Yasser Omar, the researcher from IT in charge of PAPETS, had the
opportunity to make a demonstration of the project to the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation – Carlos Moedas – and the Minister for Education and Scientific Research – Nuno Crato – who were both very enthusiastic about the project.
