Juan de la Figuera
Instituto de Química Física “Rocasolano”
Staff researcher on experimental surface science, with some administration experience (former director of the IQFR institute, and involved in several scientific societies). I like to see film growth happen in real time and real space, so far through the use of low-energy electron microscopies in ultra high vacuum. Research themes are dynamic studies on surfaces, film growth of metals and oxides (more soon), and studies of surface magnetization vector with nanometer resolution.
Arantxa Fraile Rodríguez
Researcher in the Group of Nanomagnetic Materials (https://magneticnanomaterialsub.wordpress.com/) at the Dpt. of Condensed Matter Physics and the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (http://www.ub.edu/in2ub/index.php?lang=en), of Universitat de Barcelona (https://www.ub.edu/web/portal/en/). I carry out research in the field of multifunctional nanomaterials with, mainly, magnetic and plasmonic properties. I use advanced microscopic and spectroscopic techniques based on Synchrotron radiation (PEEM, XAS, XMCD, EXAFS).
