About Me

Postdoctoral researcher at the Group of Biophysics and Molecular Physics at the University of Silesia in Katowice. Since my period as a PhD student at the Group of Nanomaterials and Microsystems (GNaM) of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, I am involved in the research of ultrastable organic glasses, aimed to the development of glass technology and its application in several important industries, such pharmaceutical or electronics.

AREAS OF WORK

Systems and techniques I have worked with

Physical Vapour Deposition

Thermal evaporation. Thin films. Vacuum technology.
Physical vapour deposition has emerged as a powerful technique to produce glasses with unprecedented thermodynamic and kinetic stability.

Thermal Analysis

Membrane-based calorimetry. Quasi-adiabatic fast-scanning nanocalorimetry. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
The new advances in microfabrication have permitted to develop techniques able to measure the heat capacity of very thin films and at ultra high heating rates.

glasses

Glass transition. Stability of glasses. Transformation mechanisms. Relaxation time. Properties of ultrastable glasses.
Glasses are solid-like materials with a disordered structure. The nature of glasses is one of the remaining unresolved issues in the field of condensed matter.
