The activity of the group focuses on two main areas. On the one hand, the Group develops and applies new chemometric techniques related to the validation of analytical methodologies. On the other hand, the second main activity of the Group is the transfer of knowledge and technology.
The main aim of the Master's Degree is to provide students with solid, interdisciplinary training that will make it possible to respond to the challenges of scientific and technological development. Students will learn about new tools for fabricating, nanohandling and characterizing materials, devices and systems of nanometric size that are necessary for undertaking experimental work.
The group works on modeling and design of linear and nonlinear photonic crystals; the development of technologies based on the macroporous ordered silicon and on the nanoporous silicon for the production of 1D and 2D photonic crystals; and the development of physical models for advanced electronic devices: Thin-film transistors, nanometric-sized MOSFETs, silicon-based heterojunction devices.
The main purpose of our research center is to enhance the Ion Beam Analysis (IBA) and Ion Beam Modification of Materials (IBMM) techniques for their use in a broad range of fields, from Materials Science to Archaeometry or Environmental Science, areas of scientific research on which IBA techniques have already proven their power.
The research developed in Martin's group is mainly focussed to Carbon Nanostructures (Fullerenes and Carbon Nanotubes) as materials for the preparation of Photo- and Electroactive Organic Molecular Systems.
The group's research focuses on quantum properties of ultra-small semiconductor and organic structures with the aim to investigate theoretically new, unusual and unexpected phenomena. In particular they are interested in structures that operate in the quantum regime where several exciting and still unresolved puzzles await their discovery.
Research activities in the field of Surface engineering for high temperature: Study of corrosion behaviour of protective coatings at high temperature. Within this field the national and international projects that focus in developing new protective coating for the power generation and aerospace industry as well as the study of corrosion behaviour in very aggressive environments.
The Interuniversitary Master in Nanosciencie and Molecular Nanotechnology does not have precedents nationally since he discusses the aspects placed in the intersection of one science at his peak as he is Nanosciencie with the more traditional molecular systems . It influences, therefore, scientific areas of present-day interest like Molecular Electronics , Molecular Magnetism , the Supramolecular Chemistry , Physics at Superficies, or the Molecular Materials Science.
