Clemens Lindermeir from Wolfenbüttel

Hi, my name is Clemens Lindermeir from Wolfenbüttel, Germany. I joined the ICMAB to do an internship for a year. In Germany I study chemical engineering at the Clausthal University of Technology. Apart from that I enjoy being outdoors, riding motorcycle and playing my guitar. I am also a big fan of travelling. During my stay I`d like to learn Spanish (and maybe Catalan) fluently and I will keep looking for new experiences and friends to spend time with.

Saúl Estandía

PhD on the preparation (by PLD) of samples made of the ferroelectric oxide BaTiO3 and further characterization (by STEM microscopy) to understand the polarization domains’ dynamics, all that under the supervision of Florencio Sanchez and Jaume Gazquez. As background I hold both a degree in physics and a master in photonics (2016 – 2019)

Ariadna Soro, student of a double degree in Physics and Mathematics at UAB. She is working on her final degree project at ICMAB.

My name is Ariadna Soro and I’m currently studying a double degree in Physics and Mathematics at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). Here at ICMAB, I’ll be working on my final degree project (20.11.2017 – 30.06.2018) with the help of the Multifunctional Oxides and Complex Structures research group. Besides from studying, I also enjoy dancing, skiing and playing the guitar.

I’m really looking forward to this opportunity and I’m hoping to learn a lot from everyone here!

Mathieu Mirjolet

 

Hello there! My name is Mathieu Mirjolet. After finishing my master’s degree in Physics at the Université de Lorraine in France, I decided to join the Multifunctional Oxides and Complex Structures group of ICMAB in order to carry out my PhD.

In everyday life I enjoy travelling, reading, listening to some classical music, or just setting the world to rights with my friends and a fine whisky. Hope to see you around!

 

 

Ferran Macià

 

I am a research scientist with a background in mathematics and telecommunication engineering. My work experience and interests are magnetism and spin-dependence electron transport (spintronics) in mesoscopic systems, magnetic quantum tunneling and coherence in low dimensional magnetism. I am also interested in dynamical systems especially those involving magnetism. I follow an interdisciplinary research approach-contributing mostly with experimental work but also with theoretical and computational studies.

Josep Fontcuberta

Fontcuberta

I’m mostly interested on functional oxides. These strongly correlated electronic systems display fascinating
ferroic (i.e. magnetic, ferroelectric), electric and optical properties, that have motivated my research and that
of the group I’ve led. I’m a material’s scientist and I have devoted much effort to the preparation and growth
of epitaxies of complex oxides and to the study of the relationship between their structure, microstructure and
functional properties. Nowadays, my research activity is focused on exploiting oxide thin films for efficient
data storage using magnetic and ferroelectric materials, and their potential use in photovoltaics for energy
harvesting and as transparent metallic electrodes.
I’m persuaded that oxides can play a very important role in advanced high-tech devices and I’m pushing for the
development of either new applications or new-concept devices.

Yu Chen

 

 

I studied in Shanghai University as a master student.On 2nd Nov. 2016, I incorporated to ICMAB.
In ICMAB, I study the transport properties of the LAO/STO 2DEGs and the interaction of transport with light. My work also focuses in imaging magnetic and f
erroelectric domains in multiferroic structures.

Cryogenic radiation detectors, working at temperatures well below 1K, are considered the next generation of instrumentation for a wide variety of applications. Among them, superconducting Transition Edge Sensors (TESs) are nowadays at the frontline. TESs are ultrasensitive microcalorimeters or bolometers useful for a very wide radiation range, from gamma-rays to microwaves and particles. Although initially developed mainly for astronomic instruments, either on ground or in space, their performances, the maturity achieved and the progress on cryogenics have open many other niches for them, in applications such as industry, materials science and quantum information. In particular, TESs have already been installed in electron microscopes and in several synchrotron lines.

My research focuses in the development (design, fabrication and characterization) of X-ray detectors based on Mo/Au-based TES, for Space and other applications, such as dark matter search or materials science. I’m also interested in the physics of these devices: indeed, in spite of the extraordinary development of TES and their achieved performances, there is still room for them to further approach the theoretically predicted limits. Specific work to this end involves understanding the nature of the superconducting transition, and electrothermal modeling to determine and reduce the so-called unexplained noise.

Research Leader in Functional Oxide Interfaces and Photonics

The celebrated phrase “the interface is the device” is my favorite motto to describe my research activity, which aims at uncovering new physical phenomena at the boundary of materials, for new concepts and applications.

Until 2008, my focus was on the research on functional oxides, exploiting their magnetic and transport properties. Yet, well before my appointment at ICMAB, my previous scientific experience Ied me to the convincement that exploiting also the optical properties of functional interfaces was an endless source of inspiration for new physics. In 2008, my new permanent position as a tenured researcher at ICMAB-CSIC gave me the opportunity to bring these new ideas and concepts into life.

This background has brought to my major achievements in the fields of oxide functional interfaces and photonics. My most notorious highlights in the last four years include: (i) The possibility of manipulating the electronic structure of oxide quantum wells to realize tailored properties for applications, mainly in electronics (Physical Review Letters 109, 226601 (2012), Scientific Reports 2, 758 (2012), Physical Review Letters 113, 156802 (2014), Nature Communications 6, 6028 (2015), ii) the tuning of electronic orbital polarization at oxide surfaces (Nature Communications 3, 1189 (2012)); the tailoring of the magneto-optic activity exploiting photonic-band effects (ACS Nano, 5, 2957(2011), Nanoscale 3, 4811 (2011)) and (iv) exploiting plasmons for enhanced magnetooptics (Langmuir, 28, 9010 (2012), Physical Review Applied 2, 054003 (2014).

I have supervised three Master Theses and three PhD Theses (two more are in progress). My results have been published in 71 articles (during the last six years I have published 12 articles in journals with index of impact higher than 5) and my h-index is h = 20. I have been awarded with 12 invited lectures in international conferences during the last 6 years (among them, APS March Meeting (twice), MRS Spring, SPIE, CIMTEC and Intermag conferences). I have co-authored a book chapter in the field of photonics (2013). My scientific record is available at http://www.researcherid.com/rid/G-2770-2014.

One of my endeavors has been to be in contact with the scientific community and boost the communication and knowledge exchange. With this in spirit, I have been organizer in two MRS Spring symposia (one as lead coordinator) and I am also leading the organization of one symposium in EMRS 2015 in functional oxides. At the same time, I have been invited as lecturer in different Schools worldwide to lecture on oxide physics and photonics.
