Hybrid Systems and Nanospectroscopy

Members of the Academic Staff

Hybrid Systems and Nanospectroscopy, is an interdisciplinary group interested in the design, development and characterization of functional hybrid structures in order to study its physicochemical and spectroscopic properties.

Hybrid materials combine materials of different nature (organic and inorganic), with properties enhanced to their constituents. They are organized into discrete levels, resulting in materials with a hierarchical structure on a molecular scale, nanoscale, microscopic and macroscopic. The incorporation of inorganic materials in a polymer matrix, allows generation of new materials that at a certain moment, could meet current technological requirements.

On the other hand the group carries out research about new techniques of enhanced spectroscopy with nanometric spatial resolution, which include the design and implementation of techniques such as Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy -SERS and Tip – enhanced Raman Scattering – TERS. In this sense, we are interested to develop techniques with a high sensitivity, selectivity and resolution that can be applied in the field of health and the environment. It is of special interest develop techniques that they can realize simultaneous nm resolution and sensitivity of an individual molecule.
