|Role||Staff Researcher – Electron Microscopy Facility Manager|
|Institution||International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL)|
|Keywords / Areas of Interest||Electron Microscopy, Atomic Scale Characterization, Fuel Cells, Batteries, Catalysts|
|Expertise Sought||Our research is focused on understanding the structure and chemical composition of materials by using advanced electron microscopy techniques (Imaging and Spectroscopy). We aim to correlate the atomic structure and composition with the macroscopic properties/features of the materials by using the following techniques: Aberration-Corrected (S)TEM, Electron Diffraction, EELS, EDX and in-situ.
In view of the aforementioned, we are looking for researchers working on Batteries, Fuel Cells and Catalysts for whom the characterization of their materials by advanced electron microscopy techniques is key to understand the properties of their materials.
Enrique Carbo-Argibay is currently Staff Researcher and Electron Microscopy Facility Manager at International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal.
He has a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Vigo (Spain), where he worked on the synthesis, structural characterization and optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles. After his PhD, Enrique joined INL in 2013 as postdoctoral researcher to work on the synthesis and electron microscopy characterization of nanomaterials. Subsequently, he focused his research on understanding the structure and chemical composition of doped 2D materials, by using aberration-corrected TEM/STEM coupled with EELS and EDS techniques.
His current research is focused on correlating the atomic structure and composition of materials with their macroscopic properties by means of the use of advanced Electron Microscopy techniques, particularly in the field of Batteries, Fuel Cells and Catalysts.
He is co-author of more than 40 publications in international peer reviewed journals and 1 book chapter: https://inl.int/inl-people/enrique-carbo-argibay/
