Prof. Francesca Peiró
Dr. Francesca Peiró, (Spain, 1965): received her PhD in Physics at the University of Barcelona (UB) in 1993 and worked as a TEM technician at the Scientific and Technological Centers of UB from 1988 to 1995. In1995 became Associated Professor at the Electronics Department of UB. From 2017 she is Full Professor in the Electronics and Biomedical Engineering Dept. She is the leader of the Laboratory of Electron Nanoscopy (LENS) of the research group Micro-nanotechnologies and Nanoscopies for electronic and photonic devices (MIND) of the University of Barcelona. LENS group has access to aberration corrected instruments in Spain (Madrid and Saragossa) in the frame of national projects (IMAGINE CSD2009-00013 and CTP2011-00018 respectively). She has supervised 11 PhD (5 more in development) and 5 post docs. She has been principal investigator of many national research projects and has participated in different bilateral international collaborations and EU projects. Her main field of research is transmission electron microscopy and related techniques applied to the characterisation of of III–V semiconductors and nanostructures, complex oxides for spintronics and nanomaterials for energy.
