Postdoc position in natural photonics and photosynthesis at INL, Braga-Portugal. 

Closing date for applications: 28 August 2018.

This project will investigate photosynthetic photonic structures in nature and the correlation between natural photonics and photosynthesis efficiency. In particular we will develop the tools to study both properties simultaneously at single cell level.

The research will focus primarily on photosynthetic photonic structures in plants (https://www.nature.com/articles/nplants2016162) but other systems such as algae (Science Advances, 4, eaan8917,2018) or bacteria could also be explored. Therefore, candidates with a background on optical setup development and/or characterization of natural photonic structures will be highly valued.  Applications should be submitted through the following website:

This is a 2.5 years position funded by the Portuguese National Government. 

The NAPSD Group is focused on the study of light mater interaction at nano and microscale with a focus on natural photonic environments. More information on the activities of the group can be found at http://inl.int/nanophotonics/nanophotonics/natural-and-artificial-photonic-structures-and-devices/. Further information is available upon request from Martin Lopez-Garcia in  martin.lopez@inl.int.

    Unfortunately, our good friend, collaborator and benefactor or many ICMAB researchers, Dr. Massimo Marezio, passed away last May 13, 2019, in his hometown, Rome. Prof. Xavier Obradors, who met him while he was doing his PhD thesis in Grenoble, has written him some words as an obituary in the form of a last personal letter. Read it here. Massimo se n’è ándato, a sempre caro amico!
  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    03 June 2019 618 hit(s)
    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
