Electronic Properties at the Nanoscale

  • Electronic Properties at the Nanoscale
  • This research line is focused on the electronic properties of solids, surfaces, and low-dimensional systems. We are especially concerned with the investigation of systems at the nanoscale. Time-dependent phenomena in nanostructures and at surfaces is also addressed, with particular emphasis on processes taking place in the attosecond time scale. Methodological advance as well as numerical calculations of novel materials properties are essential part of the research activity.

Surfaces and Interfaces

  • Surfaces and Interfaces
  • This theoretical and experimental line addresses the structural and electronic properties of complex nanostructured materials. The main focus is in understanding the properties and formation of nanostructured self-assembled surfaces and other types of nanostructures. In general, we study the interaction of molecular and atomic adsorbates with surfaces and nanostructures, and the reactivity of these adsorbates. Dynamics of elementary reactive processes at surfaces are another target for the research performed.

Polymers and Soft Matter

  • Polymers and Soft Matter
  • The development of new materials of increasing complexity based on polymers and soft matter, poses challenging problems to basic sciences. The relationship between structure and dynamics at different length and time scales, the understanding of the interplay of geometry and topology, the characterization of the interfacial features and the dynamics at the interfacial level, the new confinement effects, the way local friction arises in crowed environments that are chemically heterogeneous, are, among others, fundamental problems but of utmost importance for the future development of novel technologies based on such materials. A combination of both, experimental and theoretical & simulation efforts is essential to progress in this interdisciplinary area.

Photonics and Plasmonics

  • Photonics and Plasmonics
  • The research line on Photonics deals with the study of the interaction of radiation and matter from two different and complementary approaches: (i) the interaction of light with metallic and semiconductor nanostructures to confine and engineer electromagnetic fields on the nanoscale, and (ii) the research on the optical properties of new materials and elements that provide improved properties in a variety of lasing effects, as well as the design of novel photonic structures that provide laser confinement for bio-imaging.

Computational Chemistry and Physical Chemistry

  • Computational Chemistry and Physical Chemistry
  • Quantum chemistry and computer modeling have made a major impact on the chemist's way of thinking and working. They have enjoyed the benefits of the remarkable achievements in computer technology and have reached to a point where they can provide results with an accuracy approaching that of the experiments with the freedom to consider rare or even ‘impossible’ species and configurations which can hardly be accessible to experimental observation. Research in this line focuses into the development of new methodology, into the application of the methods to relevant chemical problems, and into the computational design and even synthesis of novel chemical entities that could have potential therapeutic applications.
