Research lines

We are mostly interested in the electronic properties of systems in reduced dimensions.
Our research program is articulated around different research themes: Spintronics, Multifunctional devices and Advanced nanofabrication.



We use state-of-the-art techniques, such as high resolution electron beam lithography, for building devices that allow us to explore the world at the nanometre scale.

Molecular Spintronics


With a variety of experimental techniques, from devices to surface science studies, we explore how molecules can coherently transport the spin of the electrons for long times.

Metal Spintronics


With metals we can create, transport and manipulate pure spin currents; studying in this way spintronics both as an alternative and a complement to conventional electronics.

2D electronics


We use two-dimensional layered materials (such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides) as building blocks for novel (opto-) electronic devices.       

Resistive Switching Devices


We study resistive switching memory devices to be applied in large-area electronics, aiming at building prototypes of radically new architectures for the Internet of Things.
