Doctor Alejandro Fernández Rodríguez, from the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) Group at ICMAB-CSIC, defended his PhD thesis titled "Field-Induced Reversible Tuning of Oxygen Doping in High-Temperature Superconductors" on Monday, 4 April 2022 in a hybrid session. Congrats!
The PhD thesis was supervised by Anna Palau and Narcís Mestres, from the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures (SUMAN) Group, ICMAB-CSIC.
The PhD Committee that evaluated the Thesis was formed by Lluís Balcells, ICMAB-CSIC (President), Víctor Rouco, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) (Secretary), Mariela Andrea Menghini, Instituto IMDEA Nanociencia.
Alejandro Fernández’s PhD thesis was part of the PhD Programme in Materials Science from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).
I started doing my master thesis and after that I was offered to do the PhD.
I study the manipulation of the special properties of a material that conducts the electric current with no energy loss to create digital devices.
The devices that we designed show good performance for the future application in memory devices and neuromorphic applications.
Team work is key.
The friends I will leave and the atmosphere there in general.
I got a lot ok knowledge in physics, team work and life in general, apart from being my first job.
Look for a job outside of the academy.
Doing a deep research in the bibliography about your topic.
I like physics and I wanted to study the degree, but I did not have any role model in the field.
Marie Curie, because she was awarded with two Nobel prizes.
