    Guinea López

    Francisco Guinea obtained his BSc (1975) in Physics from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and the Phd at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (1980) . He obtained a Fullbright Fellowship and worked at the University of California, Santa Barbara, during the years 1982-1984. He became Assistant Professor at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1985, and Senior Researcher at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas in 1987. He has been visiting Professor at the University of Michigan, 1991-1992, and visiting Researcher at the University of California San Diego, 1997, and Boston University, 2004-2005. He has stayed for shorter periods at a number of institutions worldwide, like IBM Rüschlikon, Kernforschunganlage Jülich, DIPC, San Sebastián, ICTP, Trieste, ENS, Par ́s, and many more. He joined Imdea Nanoscience in January 2005.

    F. G. has published over 400 scientific papers, with an h-index of 75 and more than 50 papers with over 100 citations. He has received a number of awards, including the biannual National Prize for Physics (Spain), and the Gold Medal of the Spanish Physical Society.

    Research Lines

    The group has varied interests intheoretical condensed matter physics and materials science. In particular, we focus on:

    1. Novel properties and devices of graphene. Electronic and structural properties.
    2. Optical and structural properties of two dimensional semiconductors, like transition metal dichalco- genides and black phosphorus.
    3. Two dimensional superconductivity.

    Sainz Cruz

    Héctor is a PhD student in the group of Prof. Paco Guinea. His research is focused on twisted bilayer graphene junctions. In particular, he want to understand the effects of angle disorder and predict signatures of topological superconductivity in devices made of this material. Héctor studied a masters in physics at ETH Zurich and a bachelors in physics at the Autonomous University of Madrid. His research interests include 2D materials, superconductivity and quantum computation.
