For the thesis entitled: Development of Graphene Atomic Mirrors for Neutral Helium Microscopy
Presented at: UNIVERSIDAD AUTÓNOMA DE MADRID and supervised by: PROF. DANIEL FARÍA
We highlight the PhD work presented by Gloria Anemone (GA). Her thesis addresses an innovative topic related to the design, fabrication and characterization of novel (curved) mirrors based on graphene for neutral atoms microscopes that operate under ultra-high vacuum (UHV) conditions. In particular, the work has important implications in the development of the technique and in the study of relevant systems such as 2D materials grown on flexible and curved substrates. Though it is mainly an experimental work, its combination with theoretical simulations provides an added value to the research that is also emphasized. Finally, we want to stress the contribution of GA to a large number of high-quality scientific production derived from her work, including the publication in high-impact journals as well as the presentation to international meetings. GA research work perfectly matches the scope and interests of the ASEVA community.
