Welcome to the Nanopto research group webpage. Our headquarters are at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC).

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 PhD Graduate: Mayte Gomez

Nanopto has a new graduate,  this time is the turn of Dra. Mayte Gómez. Congratulations!

Our research group has a new Youtube Channel

New Cover in Angewandte Chemie by David Vila-Liarte and colleagues

The cover of the next volume of Angewandte Chemie International Edition is inspired by one of ours group recent published work

Mariano Campoy-Quiles and his team obtain an ERC Proof of Concept Grant

Mariano Campy-Quiles has received an ERC Proof of Concept grant to develop autonomous wireless sensors, self-powered by organic thermoelectrics. In this case, the future device will present a direct application in vineyards in order to keep a live record of the most important parameters for the best development of the crops, such as temperature and […]
