IPPROJECT
Núria Aliaga-Alcalde

The main objective is the generation of novel organic semiconductors of polymeric nature based on curcuminoids (CCMoids) as active layers in optoelectronic devices (e.g.: organic solar cells and OFETs), as responsive layers (photo- or electrochemical response) to finally create effective integrated molecular-based components in advanced appliances. The synthesis, characterization and final performance within the nanodevice are the ordered steps that will be followed in the Master.

M. Isabel Alonso Carmona

This proposal is aimed at optimizing plasmonic substrates useful for increasing the Raman signal of different analytes. Detection by Raman spectroscopy has unique advantages such as its molecular specificity and insensitivity to quenching. This work aims to develop the correlation between the substrate morphology measured by AFM and the identification of hot-spots in the micro-Raman imaging SERS. The final goal is the reproducible and quantitative evaluation of the analyte spectra.

The discovery of visible-light absorbing in Bi-based ferroelectric perovskite oxides has opened new perspectives in the field of PV to achieve efficiencies beyond the maximum predicted in a conventional solar cell. With the aim to overcome the limiting properties of the known oxides we will study new Bi-based oxide films and heterostructures compatible with current Si-electronics, using abundant and non-toxic elements. The project is based on chemical materials synthesis and structural and optical characterization.

Los dispositivos electrónicos moleculares tales como interruptores y memorias basadas en moléculas orgánicas funcionales han despertado un gran interés por las posibles futuras aplicaciones en nanotecnología. Para ello, la preparación de materiales híbridos i.e., molécula/soporte sólido, robustos y estables es de gran importancia. Además, su caracterización eléctrica es imprescindible para estudiar su comportamiento y funcionalidad como memorias. Por ello, se trabajará en la deposición del material orgánico y en su caracterización estructural y eléctrica.

The project involves the growing of the antiferromagnetic material in thin film form on top of inexpensive substrates. The main body of the project focuses on basic characterization using a wide range of characterization techniques: structural, morphological, compositional, magnetometric and transport. Importantly, these techniques can be extrapolated to the characterization of any magnetic material. The student will also lead the functional tests of the material for being used as a memory element using transport or optical (by the use of the synchrotron light at ALBA) techniques.

The proposed Master thesis will carefully analyze the photoelectric response of ferroelectric tunnel junction under different conditions using state-of-the-art characterization devices. Therefore, the Master student will acquire knowledge on material growth and basic characterization. The Master student will get wide experience on photoelectric characterization, not only required for technological perspectives like the one proposed for his/her Master thesis, also required for emerging technological areas such as solar cells

La sustitución de oxígeno por nitrógeno en perovsquitas induce cambios importantes en las propiedades electrónicas debido a la menor electronegatividad y mayor carga del nitruro. En este proyecto se prepararán nuevas perovsquitas nitruradas de metales de transición con estados de oxidación altos, como nuevos materiales dieléctricos, ferroeléctricos o magnéticos. Los materiales se caracterizarán mediante técnicas de difracción (rayos X, electrones) y medidas magnéticas y eléctricas.

La contaminación por As limita el acceso al agua en muchas regiones del planeta. Con las estrategias de descontaminación es necesario un monitoreo semicontínuo del As. Proponemos desarrollar microelectrodos porosos de C con nanopartículas de Au integrados en un sistema microfluidicos para el análisis electroquímico de As en aguas. A medio plazo se pretende integrar este dispositivo en un sistema autónomo y portable y de bajo coste para hacer medidas in-situ.

El proyecto a desarrollar pretende estudiar la internalización tanto partículas de oro como poliméricas en Saccharomyces Cerevisiae u hongo de la cerveza. Este es uno de los modelos más utilizados para el estudio de problemas biológicos. Así se preparan partículas de Au funcionalizadas con Ni-NTA y poliestireno para estudiar su internalización y su interacción con proteínas de membrana. La interacción de las partículas con las proteínas de membranas expresadas por este hongo permitirá también obtener superficies biométicas para el desarrollo de nuevos biosensores.

Despite the enormous efforts in cancer research worldwide, we are still far from efficient medicines in many cases. Encouragingly, Dr. C. H. June (Penn University, US) and collaborators described the remission of otherwise terminal leukemia patients with genetically modified autologous T cells using an adoptive T cell therapy. This therapy consists of the isolation of T cells, their ex vivo activation and expansion, and the subsequent autologous administration. Nevertheless, the ability to expand certain T cell subsets in high quantities with a determined phenotype and at a reasonable cost remains a limiting factor for the translation of cancer immunotherapies to clinics.

To improve such limitation, we are developing different stimuli-responsive supramolecular hydrogels. These hydrogels have tunable chemical and mechanical properties which are expected to enhance T cell proliferation rates while controlling the cellular phenotypes obtained ex-vivo. The student will first prepare synthetic hydrogels and characterize their properties by different techniques such as NMR, IR, rheometry, etc. Then, he/she will purify T cells from human peripheral blood and analyze T cell proliferation and differentiation in the synthesized hydrogels by means of ELISA tests, flow cytometry and optical microscopy.

In our lab we are investigating new materials for applications in information technologies. One of our research lines aims at modulating the information stored in magnetic moments by the application of electric field pulses that, in turn, generate strain waves that stretch/squeeze locally the ferromagnet and change its magnetic state. We study these phenomena optically: the student will be trained in optical imaging and spectroscopy. Also, the candidate will have the opportunity to learn how devices can be designed to the ca. 100 nm scale by electron-beam lithography.

We can chemically and structurally tune the properties of nanoparticles (NPs) impacting on how they interact with biological materials. The lack of a time- and batch-efficient method to evaluate NPs and processes prevents establishing general fundamental principles and impedes the progress. Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) is an invertebrate, transparent worm with 60% genetic homology to humans which we will use to evaluate the NPs. Student will learn to work with nanoparticles from the synthesis and characterization point of view and additionally will study the nano-bio interaction with C. elegans.

Spin currents may complement digital semiconductor technologies and offer new possibilities for memory capacity and computational performance of particular importance as semiconductor devices miniaturization approaches fundamental limits. This research project aims at studying the possibility of using spin currents (with no electrical charge) in nanostructured materials as information carriers. We will excite dynamical magnetic modes that can pump spins into a neighboring material. The project includes nanofabrication and measurements of microwaves in the fabricated structures.

We are entering in the era of “Big data” with huge amount of information that needs to be stored and processed in unsustainable large-scale data centres and supercomputing systems. The challenge ahead is a revolution with energy-efficient technologies, able to reduce the related environmental and economic impacts. With this project we propose to explore a revolutionary concept of hybrid ferromagnetic-superconducting systems, which will be exploited in the production of “green” memory devices [1].

Aside from plants, cellulose can be synthesized by bacteria. In particular, bacterial cellulose has the same molecular formula as vegetal cellulose but in contrast is a pure biopolymer that exhibits a higher degree of polymerization and better crystallinity, high porosity, transparency and a high water holding capacity.

In this project, the candidate will develop new nanocomposites of bacterial cellulose by innovative cost-effective approaches where synthesis of different nanocrystals into BC will be pursued. Materials will be fully characterized with a full range of materials science techniques.

In this proposal, a conceptually new route to Spintronics will be pursued, synthesizing molecule-based materials to be used as the active part of the device. Coupled conductivity and magnetism, usually exploited in hard (inorganic) materials, will be combined with the typical characteristic of molecular materials, including softness, flexibility, low cost, biocompatibility, biodegradability, tunability, and large-area processing, to develop a completely new generation of Molecular Spintronic Materials for advanced applications in electronic circuitry and devices, and memories, among others.
