The Brazilian Academy of Science (Academia Brasileira de Ciências) has just released the new members. One interesting class, created about 10 years ago, is the Affiliated Member (Membro Afiliado), which lasts for five years and focus on young promising scientists. In physics, São Paulo state has just elected five new Affiliated Members, three of them our SPN off QuBIT fellows Diogo de Oliveira Soares Pinto (USP), Gustavo Wiederhecker (Unicamp), and Thiago Pedro Mayer Alegre (Unicamp).
Congratulation, guys! Let us celebrate during our December Meeting.
It is in Portuguese, sorry for some readers, explaining some new contributions from the group of Eugene Polzik, at Niels Bohr Institute. They show how to optically measure magnetic fields with high sensitiveness and no need of cryogeny, and how this can be a viable alternative to electrocardiography (ECG), capable of noninvasive (in medical sense) monitoring of the heart of a fetus (this is the part that appeals to Luciana!).
Congratulations, Gabriel! Long life to the partnership with Luciana and with Jornal da USP.
