Having Fun in 2D: From Micro-mechanical Resonators to Memristive Transistors
In this webinar, Daniel Granados PhD will present some results concerning the development of retroreflectors based on MoS2 oscillating membranes and how they can be turned into electroluminescent diodes. He will also present the tailoring of conductive channels on MoS2 FET devices1. Preliminary results on lateral PN homo-junctions, memristive field-effect transistors and photonic crystal cavities will also be presented.
Daniel Granados has a degree in Physical Sciences from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2001) and obtained his doctorate in Physical Sciences from the same university in 2006. He completed his doctoral thesis at the Grupo de Epitaxia de Haces Moleulares of the Instituto de Microelecrónica de Madrid (IMM-CNM-CSIC) on the growth and characterization of nanostructures and devices based on III-V semiconductors. In 2005 he was a visiting researcher at Heriot-Watt University (UK), where he studied optical properties of individual quantum nanostructures. In 2006 he moved to Cambridge (UK) as the leader of the photon confinement laboratory, working for the Toshiba Research Quantum Information Group, where he studied strong coupling interactions in photonic crystal micro-cavities. During this period, he was also a visiting researcher for the Semiconductor Physics Group at the Cavendish Laboratory. In 2009 he returned to the Madrid Institute for Advanced Studies in Nanoscience as responsible for designing and developing nanofabrication cleanroom services. Since 2014 he has been the leader of the quantum nanodevices group and executive director of IMDEA-Nanociencia research foundation. His current research focuses on the manufacture of hybrid devices for space, defence, and information technology applications. He has been a member of the scientific committee of ASEVA since 2019. He has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles throughout his scientific career, contributed to more than 50 international congresses, supervised eight PhD thesis, and holds three patents.
