My research field or area of interest innanotechnology
The Dr. Aparicio has developed a productive scientific career as it is evidenced by his 22 articles in high impact journals such as: Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Chemistry of Materials, The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Nanoscale and others. Most of these articles have been published Q1 Journals (22 paper) and 12 within the 1st decile. The applicant is first or second author of more than 75% of these articles (9 as first author and 8 as second author) and corresponding author of four of them plus one paper in preparation. The growing interest in these investigations is illustrated by an uptrend evolution of the number of citations during the last years. For instance, in 2016 the number of citations almost duplicates the average citations/year of the last five years.
He has participated, as team member, in 5 national and 3 international projects. Amongst them, it worth mentioning here the EU funded projects granted for the fabrication of advanced sensors devices (PHODYE) and smart labelling and anti-counterfeiting systems (RECUPERA2020) from the functional nanocomposites developed by the candidate. This illustrates the diverse applications of his investigations. Since 2015 he has been granted, as principal investigator, 3 competitive national and international projects (EC Marie Curie Action, JdC-Incorporación and NFFA-Europe). Moreover, he has published and invention patent that drew the attention of the Royal Mint of Spain (Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre – Real Casa de la Moneda).
He performed two international postdoctoral stays: i) at the University of Trento ii) at the University of Mons in leading groups in biophotonics and plasma polymerization processes, respectively. Besides his scientific tasks, there he was in charge of the acquisition of advanced characterization instruments.
The researches of Dr. Aparicio have been highlighted in the cover of 5 reputed journals, cited in books (1) and reviews (20) in high impacts scientific journals, and presented in 6 invited talks in international conferences and seminars. In 2016 he presented an invited lecture at the “20th International Plasma School Low Temperature Plasma Physics: Basics and Applications“ held at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef and an invited talk at the “EMN Organic-Electronics and Photonics Meeting”. He also participated as professor at the Master programme “Plasma, Láser y Tecnologías de Superficie” (University of Cordoba and Technical University of Madrid - 2016) and at the post graduate course “Métodos Físicos de Análisis de Capas Finas y Superficies de Sólidos” (Institute of Materials Science of Seville – 2016).
He has cosupervised two Master thesis, one at the University of Trento, and one at the University of Seville. The latter investigations, carried out by Ms. Ana Mora Boza, were awarded different prices. He was also the supervisor of one undergraduate student (University of Mons) and involved in two PhD Thesis.
Due to his expertise in fields such as plasma processes, photofunctional organic materials, and thin films; since 2014 he acts as referee in different scientific reputed journals: ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, Polymer, Surf. Coat. and Tech. and others.
Interested in nanomaterials with optical properties (non linear, luminescent, electroluminescent, chiral and photochromic properties).
Looking to further acquire a deeper knowledge in photonics and plasmonics. Particularly fluorescent enhancement process.
Also interested in plasma treatments and deposition processes.
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
