FUNCTIONAL NANOMATERIALS & SURFACES

Functional Nanomaterials & Surfaces
Group

The group interests relate to the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, particularly the areas of molecular electronics, molecular magnetism and biology. We design molecular systems capable of providing inputs at the nano-scale and focus our efforts in the control and organization of such species on different surfaces/nanodevices. The main areas of expertise are

  • Synthesis of functional molecules/polymers & supramolecular aggregates
  • Characterization of our molecular-based materials
  • Surface studies

The ICMAB donates 33.200 gloves for medical uses. Solidarity is the only way!

The ICMAB donates 33.200 gloves for medical uses. Solidarity is the only way!

The ICMAB is since last Monday 16 March 2020, an Institute with Restricted Access. Most of the laboraories are empty, the Scientific and Technical Services are closed, only the basic services are working and most of the people is working and staying at home. For this reason, when we heard that Personal Protection Equipment was needed in the hospitals and health centers, we had no doubt that we could donate some of the material that we had.

The CSIC Catalunya organized a morning in which women scientists from different CSIC centers visited the school “Escola Can Maiol” in Sants, Barcelona, to talk and experiment with science. From the ICMAB, Arántzazu González, chemist, visited the group of 3r Primària (8-9 years old) and did some experiments to discover the acid/basic properties of some natural substances that we have at home by the change of color. Sants3Radio was there to talk with them!

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICS EXPERTISE IN ELECTRONIC TRANSPORT MESURAMENTS.

FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group at the ICMAB (Institute of Material Science of Barcelona, Bellaterra, Spain) interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices with the goal of developing functional molecular-based platforms for electronic and/or sensing applications.

Job Description
We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create hybrid graphene-based three-terminal nanodevices. The postdoctoral fellow will oversee the design, fabrication and characterization of graphene-based electrodes separated by a nano-gap (<2 nm) using controlled electroburning, as well as the analysis and treatment of the experimental data. Electronic transport measurements of three-terminal nanodevices will be performed in a probe station under various environmental conditions to assess their efficiency and robustness as electronic sensors.

The devices will be prepared using molecular-based materials as active components, an area in which the group has extensive experience. A key aspect of the project is the functionalization of graphene electrodes via e.g. covalent and supramolecular attachment. We thus seek a candidate with excellent nanofabrication skills, who ideally has a background in graphene nanotechnologies.

Postdoctoral position in Organic Chemistry and Surfaces.

FunNanoSurf is a multidisciplinary group interested in the integration of molecules as active elements in nano-/micro-devices of different nature with the goal of developing responsive molecular-based platforms useful for electronic and/or sensor purposes. 

Job Description 

We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow to create highly-conjugated molecular-based materials to accommodate them in nano-devices. The postdoctoral fellow must have an extensive knowledge on characterization in solution, in the solid state and on surfaces. The project will require two phases, a first one related to the synthesis of the systems and a second one toward the deposition of the materials on different substrates. The successful candidate should have experience in organic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry and surface chemistry. Expertise in soft-deposition techniques and analysis of SAMs will be highly regarded.
