• ALBA Synchrotron Light Source 

      García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel (2015-03-23)
      ALBA synchrotron light source (www.cells.es) is the largest Spanish research infrastructure that started full operation of its first 7 beamlines on February 2013. I will divide the talk in three parts: i) the general ...
    • Clinkering of calcium sulfoaluminate clinkers: polymorphism of ye'elimite 

      Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; [et al.] (2018)
      The manufacture of CSA cements is more environmentally friendly than that of OPC as it releases less CO2. This reduction depends on CSA composition and is due to three factors: i) less emissions from decarbonation in the ...
    • Powder diffraction at ALBA synchrotron 

      García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel (2017-03-17)
      This talk is devoted to explain the uses of powder diffraction at MSPD (material science and powder diffraction) of ALBA synchrotron light source. General characteristics of the beamline are: Station 1 - High Pressure ...

    • Processing and characterisation of calcium sulphoaluminate ecocements containing Microencapsulated Phase Change Materials 

      Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel; Romero-Espinosa, Andrea; Sanfelix, Susana G.; Cuesta-Garcia, Ana Maria; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; [et al.] (2018-07-17)
      Calcium SulphoAluminate (CSA) cements can be considered as ecocements, since their production releases up to 40% less CO2 than Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) [1]. In addition, Microencapsulated Phase Change Materials (MPCM) ...

    • Synchrotron radiation: science & applications 

      García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel (2015-03-23)
      This general talk is devoted to briefly introduce the main uses and applications of synchrotron radiation. An initial introduction will be dedicated to describe a synchrotron as a Large Facility devoted to produce photons ...
    • Synthesis of active Belite-Alite-Ye'elimite clinker (BAY) 

      Zea-Garcia, Jesus D.; García-Aranda, Miguel Ángel; Gomez-de-la-Torre, Maria de los Angeles; Santacruz-Cruz, Maria Isabel (2016-06-29)
      Ordinary Portland cement (OPC) is an environmentally contentious material, as for every ton of OPC produced, on average, 0.97 tons of CO2 are released. Ye'elimite-rich cements are considered as eco-cements because their ...
