Fuerzas y Túnel FyT2023 conference

Fuerzas y Túnel FyT2023 conference

The Fuerzas y Túnel (FyTconference is a biannual symposium whose purpose is to bring together the national and international scientific community to discuss the latest advances in scanning probe microscopy (SPM). The great versatility of SPM makes it a fundamental technique in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, with applications in a wide range of research fields, from materials science to virology. In this conference, we will focus on the use and development of SPMs for the study of materials (from the atomic level up to the nanoscale), the understanding of different phenomena (electronic, optical, magnetic, mechanical) in the most diverse conditions (from ultra-high vacuum to liquid media). All together will allow the development of materials with novel properties that aim to solve different social challenges.

FyT 2023 will be held at Fundación Rei Afonso Henriques in Zamora from 3 to 5 July 2023. Beyond scientific excellence, this event will also mark 20+ years since the first FyT conference in its present format.

A series of talks from reknown speakers will cover hot topics of atomic force microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy and scanning probe theory.

We invite you to join us in FyT 2023 in Zamora to learn the latest advances of the field of scanning probes and gather with the Spanish SPM community, while enjoying an incomparable natural landscape.

Materials Physics Center (CFM, CSIC-UPV/EHU) in Donostia-San Sebastián, (the Basque Country, Spain) is currently seeking for bright, highly motivated PhD candidates who are willing to work in an intellectually stimulating environment to develop cutting-edge training and research on Materials Science, exploring physical and chemical properties of advanced materials, nanostructures and nanodevices, either theoretically or experimentally. They will have access to the most advanced techniques in the field and develop industry-transferable skills.

Approximately 25 applicants will be shortlisted for online interviews in June. In the interviews, the candidates will have the opportunity to discuss the research projects with the supervisors of the different projects and/or the Evaluation Committee.
From the interviews, 4 candidates will be selected and granted full studentships.

CFM is focused in the following research areas:

RIVA XII – Iberian Vacuum Conference

RIVA XII – Iberian Vacuum Conference

La reunión Ibérica de Vacío y Aplicaciones, RIVA, es un encuentro bienal conjunto de la Sociedad Española del Vacío (ASEVA) y la Sociedad Portuguesa del Vacío (SOPORVAC), y sigue la serie iniciada en Braga, Portugal, en 1988, cambiando alternativamente la ubicación entre Portugal y España. SOPORVAC organizará la próxima edición de RIVA XII en Braga, Portugal, durante los días 16 y 17 de mayo de 2022, en el Vila Galé Collection Hotel.
El evento es de gran relevancia en campos científicos relacionados con la ciencia e ingeniería de superficies, biointerfaces, ciencia del plasma, tecnologías de procesamiento de materiales que involucran equipos de vacío, como películas delgadas, nanoestructuras, entre otros fundamentos y aplicaciones en la tecnología de la ciencia del vacío. Esperamos contar con un gran número de delegados de Portugal y España, así como de otros países.

El registro ya está abierto en el sitio web de RIVA XII:

Having fun in 2D: From micro-mechanical resonators to memristive transistors

Having fun in 2D: From micro-mechanical resonators to memristive transistors

In this webinar, Daniel Granados PhD will present some results concerning the development of retroreflectors based on MoS2 oscillating membranes and how they can be turned into electroluminescent diodes. He will also present the tailoring of conductive channels on MoS2 FET devices1. Preliminary results on lateral PN homo-junctions, memristive field-effect transistors and photonic crystal cavities will also be presented.

Daniel Granados has a degree in Physical Sciences from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2001) and obtained his doctorate in Physical Sciences from the same university in 2006. He completed his doctoral thesis at the Grupo de Epitaxia de Haces Moleulares of the Instituto de Microelecrónica de Madrid (IMM-CNM-CSIC) on the growth and characterization of nanostructures and devices based on III-V semiconductors. In 2005 he was a visiting researcher at Heriot-Watt University (UK), where he studied optical properties of individual quantum nanostructures. In 2006 he moved to Cambridge (UK) as the leader of the photon confinement laboratory, working for the Toshiba Research Quantum Information Group, where he studied strong coupling interactions in photonic crystal micro-cavities. During this period, he was also a visiting researcher for the Semiconductor Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory. In 2009 he returned to the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies in Nanoscience as responsible for designing and developing nanofabrication cleanroom services. Since 2014 he has been the leader of the quantum nanodevices group and executive director of IMDEA-Nanociencia research foundation. His current research focuses on the manufacture of hybrid devices for space, defence, and information technology applications. He has been a member of the scientific committee of ASEVA since 2019. He has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles throughout his scientific career, contributed to more than 50 international congresses, supervised eight PhD thesis, and holds three patents.

Surface Science Seminar 2022

Surface Science Seminar 2022

Surface Science Discussions 2022 online seminar

Let us discuss on surface science! Surface Science Discussions 2022 is an online seminar taking place on 11–12 January, 2022, and featuring lectures from world-class specialists in surface science. The topics of the lectures will concentrate mostly around metal/non-metal compounds at surfaces, with a particular focus on the studies carried out under ultra-high vacuum. The event is organized by the surface science group of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mikołaj Lewandowski from the NanoBioMedical Centre of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, and has received the Honorary Patronage of the Rector of Adam Mickiewicz University Prof. Dr. Bogumiła Kaniewska, the Polish Physical Society (Poznań Branch) and the Polish Vacuum Society. Participation in the seminar is free of charge (following the registration).
