UASLP seeks more investment in science and technology development

Dr. Elsa Chavira Martínez, Professor of the Meritorious Autonomous University of Puebla (BUAP), in a recent visit to the Institute of Physics of the UASLP, spoke to people responsible for financial resources in government agencies and educational and research institutions, and investors, science And invest in technological development.

He acknowledged that there is Mexican talent in universities interested in space projects, who are clear on purpose and willing to compete, “I believe that the critical mass of graduates from public and private universities is faced with extreme qualifications.” have the competence, training and competitiveness of professionals from other countries”.

The researcher attached to BUAP’s Faculty of Computer Science commented that she has been interested in space issues since she was young, as her father was the astronomer Enrique Chavira Navarrete, for this reason she was always involved in bursting issues, blue stars. , to which he said that “my father’s contribution to modern cosmology was his discovery of a comet named Haro Chavira in 1957 by Guillermo Haro and Enrique Chavira.”

Chavira Martínez said that when he eliminated robot pianist Don Cuco el Guapo, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, through the Mexican Institute of Communications, invited him to work on the design, development and launch of the Satex-1 satellite. that it was in line with them to develop the solar cells that feed those sub-systems.

It was then, in 1994, that the high-efficiency solar cells used on the Mexican experimental satellite Satex-1 were designed, developed and manufactured. Monocrystalline silicon ingots were grown by the Czochralski technique and wafers were obtained at the Silicon Pilot Plant of the Microelectronics Department of the BUAP Institute of Sciences.

“Thermal diffusion processes carried out at the Microelectronics Laboratory of the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE)”.

Solar cells make up 25 percent of the power supply for the satellite, he said, adding “comparing voltage levels to those provided by solar panels to recharge nickel-cadmium batteries connected to the power supply. and is protected against latch-up effects.

Finally, Dr. Elsa Chavira Martínez said that plans and study programs in public universities are renewed every five years, and because space issues go ahead, workshops, certifications, summer courses for young people and teachers Delivery updates.
