Speaker's Details

Prof. Aitor Mugarza

Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), Spain

Aitor Mugarza earned his PhD in Physics at the University of the Basque Country (2002). After postdoctoral stays at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA, and at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), he was appointed Group Leader of the Atomic Manipulation and Spectroscopy Group (2013) and ICREA Research Professor (2015) at ICN2. Active in the research of quantum electronic and magnetic phenomena at the nanoscale, he has carried out pioneering studies on electron confinement and band engineering on resonator superlattices, the manipulation of charge and spin in single molecules, or the synthesis of atomically precise graphene-based nanoarchitectures.
