2017 Alba Martos Carmí

(Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain) visiting Dr. K. Koschek (IFAM), 1 February - 28 February 2017

I had the opportunity to make my stay in the research group of Dr. Katharina Koschek in Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials (IFAM) at the University of Bremen in February 2017. The experience was very positive and useful.

The main objective during my visit was to generate  knowledge of a great variety techniques in the field of polymers, such as, swelling, gel content, dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Those techniques were applied for the characterization of new polybenzoxazines, making it possible to extend the studies of my doctoral thesis in the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB).

Finally, I especially want to thank  Dr. Koschek and Dr. Soto for dedication and help by giving me new future ideas based on the results obtained.
