Books authored by LBTS members and students
finish 2017 among best-sellers in amazon
Since 2016, LBTS organizes the publication program "Unveiling new advances in the physics and technology of materials" ("Dando a conocer nuevos avances en la física y tecnología de materiales"). This is done in collaboration with GIDFI (Grupo de Innovación Docente y Difusión de la Física) and using editorial services by E&GJ Press. The aim of the program is to bring to a wider audience the recent advances in the research of materials physics. The books usually cover both developments at our laboratory and reviews of leading topics in related subjects. Notably, some of the books are coauthored by students at LBTS in connection with their end-of-grade or end-of-master works.
The collection is distributed worldwide through the on-line platform amazon. We now proudly announce that some of them have finished the year 2017 among the most popular books in the categories in which amazon has chosen to commercialize them:
