About Us

The Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting (NANOPTO) research group focuses on producing and characterizing advanced semiconducting structures with the main objective of understanding their fundamental behavior in order to tailor and improve their functionalities and empower different applications in the areas of optoelectronics, energy-related, and sensing devices.


Our group is divided into 4 different Research Lines:


New technology to measure thermal conductivity

Dr. Juan Sebastián Reparaz is the lead of the new #techtransfer video of ICMAB.

HORATES collegues at ICMAB

Four PhD students from HORATES, a European MSCA ITN (Innovation Training Networks) project aiming at developing and application of organic thermoelectrics, came to ICMAB to do their 2-3 months secondments at ICMAB.  

Congratulations Dr. Jinhui Hu, new NANOPTO PhD Graduate!

Doctor Jinhui Hu from the Nanostructured Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy Harvesting (NANOPTO) Group at ICMAB-CSIC, defended his PhD thesis titled “Plasmon-induced photocurrent generation in metal-semiconductor devices with nanofabricated inverted pyramid arrays”  

NANOPTO participation in the European Researchers’ Night
