NANOCOLUMNAR FILMS: APPLICATIONS IN MEDICINE, ENERGY AND AEROSPACE
02/11/2021 - 16:30 CET
This webinar will start with showing that nanocolumnar films can be manufactured by magnetron sputtering using the glancing angle deposition configuration. Then, various applications of these nanocolumnar films in several fields will be presented, namely in medicine (antibacterial coatings, bioelectrodes for electric stimulation, SERS substrates), energy (black metal coatings, nanostructured layers for perovskite solar cells, photo-induced self-cleaning surfaces) and aerospace industry (anti-multipactor coatings).
By Dr J M García-Martín is a research scientist at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology, CSIC. After obtaining his PhD in physics at UCM (Spain) in 1999, he was a Marie Curie postdoc at Paris-Sud University (France) in 2000–2002. He joined CSIC in 2003 and secured a permanent position in 2006. In 2014, he led the project “Nanoimplant” that won the IDEA²Madrid Award (a partnership of Comunidad de Madrid in Spain and MIT in USA). In 2017, he was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at Northeastern University (USA) and in 2020, co-founded the spin-off Nanostine. He works in metallic nanostructures with applications in magnetism, plasmonics and biomedicine. He has co-authored 99 articles, six book chapters and three patents, and his H-index is 33 (WoS).
