Our research interest is centred upon the study of advanced materials in the form of nanomaterials and thin films, and can be divided four different areas: 1) Atomic Quantum Clusters (materials below ≈ 1 nm, with a few number of atoms); 2) Nanoparticles and Magnetic Nanostructures (hybrid magnetic nanomaterials); 3) Functional Polymers (hybrid and nanostructured polymers); 4) Thin Film Nanomaterials (laser- and polymer-assisted thin film oxides).
