Research Fields:

My research interests focus on the development of radically new chemical processes to generate and stabilize nanoscale engineered functional oxide thin films and nanostructures (insulating, magnetic, ferroelectric, superconductor, and photovoltaic) combining chemical solution deposition (CSD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD). I made relevant contributions to the field of superconductivity helping establishing the basics to develop new and cost-effective chemical solution approaches to implement YBa2Cu3O7 and oxide buffer layer materials in long-length conductor processes obtaining world-leading performances. Also,for the first time, I developed and stabilized epitaxial functional oxides (magnetic and photoferroics) at low temperature by atomic layer deposition . Other areas of interest include chemical surface engineering.
