About Us

The Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting (NANOPTO) research group focuses on producing and characterizing advanced semiconducting structures with the main objective of understanding their fundamental behavior in order to tailor and improve their functionalities and empower different applications in the areas of optoelectronics, energy-related, and sensing devices.


Our group is divided into 4 different Research Lines:


Mariano Campoy-Quiles and his team obtain an ERC Proof of Concept Grant

  Mariano Campy-Quiles has received an ERC Proof of Concept grant to develop autonomous wireless sensors, self-powered by organic thermoelectrics.
