Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group

Group Leader: Jose Antonio Garrido

Main Research Lines

  • Fundamental electronic and electrochemical phenomena of novel materials, such as graphene and other 2D materials
  • Preparation (CVD) of high quality films of 2D materials. Technology and nanofabrication for advanced electronic devices and systems based on these materials
  • Bioelectronics and biomedical technologies: cell bioelectronics, flexible implants, neuroprosthetics
  • Electronic and electrochemical biosensors based on 2D materials
  • Novel 2D materials for energy storage and conversion


Led by ICREA Research Prof. Jose A. Garrido, the Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group joined the ICN2 in September 2015. The group focuses on the material sciences and technology aspects of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on carbon materials, such as graphene, as well as other 2D materials (MoS2). The group also works towards the development of technological applications based on these materials in such as electronics, bioelectronics and biosensing, energy storage and conversion, etc.

The activities cut across different scientific aspects, from the fundamentals (the physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials by CVD, surface functionalisation, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).
