About Me

Catalan researcher at the Group of Biophysics and Molecular Physics at the University of Silesia in Katowice. My research is based on the study of the properties of vapour deposited glasses, aimed to the development of glass technology and its application in several important industries, such pharmaceutical or electronics. Previously, I obtained my PhD at the Group of Nanomaterials and Microsystems (GNaM) of Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.


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.


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.

dielectric spectroscopy

Broadband dielectric spectroscopy (BDS), Relaxation processes, Secondary relaxations, Maxwell-Wagner polarisation.
The study of dielectric processes is fundamental to understand the properties of glasses. Secondary relaxations are responsible for many properties of glasses. Also, intermolecular charge transport is a central concern of fundamental and practical nature.
