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:


PhD position in organic photovoltaics at ICMAB

We offer a PhD position to carry out research related to understanding and developing photovoltaic and optoelectronic devices based on organic semiconductors.

Fabrication of a thermoelectric generator

New video showing the fabrication of a carbon nanotube based thermoelectric generator.

XRE4S technology portfolio

Our reserach on new organic materials for thermoelectrics is the focus of a new XRE4S technology portfolio video.

Observation of thermal waves in germanium

Dr. Sebastian Reaparaz and colleges have published a new paper on Science Advances.
