Laboratory of Multifunctional Thin Films and Complex Structures (MULFOX), ICMAB-CSIC

Group Type: Experimental

Research description

Oxides offer an extremely broad range of properties of major interest for science and technology. Magnetic data recording and sensing, ferroelectric data storage, piezoelectric actuators, energy harvesting in solar cells, catalysers, ionic conductors for fuel cells and superconductors for energy transport and storage are just few examples of some functional properties.

We are interested on developing new oxide-based materials with enhanced or emerging properties with especial focus on their electric, magnetic and optical properties, and to establish the links between their structure, morphology and functional properties.
