Studying functional electronic materials with radioactive ions at ISOLDE-CERN
|Starts:||13:00 26 May 2021|
|Ends:||14:00 26 May 2021|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Photon Science Institute|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Prof. Lino Pereira|
Join us for this PSI seminar with guest speaker Prof. Lino Pereira.
The ISOLDE facility at CERN has been a hub for the development of radioactive-probe techniques and their application in solid state physics and related fields. In this talk, Prof. Pereira will give an overview of the radioactive-probe techniques that are currently available at ISOLDE and review some recent highlights of their application, from long-standing activities on doping of semiconductors, to emerging topics such as color centers in diamond for quantum technologies. Prof. Pereira will also give an outlook into ongoing developments that will soon extend ISOLDE’s capabilities to new topics and user communities, for example, by enabling research on 2D materials that so far was out of reach for radioactive-probe techniques.
This event will be taking place online and furthers details about the event and how to join will be made available shortly.

Biography: Assistant Professor, KU Leuven, Belgium Together with a team of PhD students, postdocs, and collaborators, I study functional electronic materials. I am particularly interested in understanding the relation between atomic-scale structure (e.g. the position of a dopant atom in the lattice of a host semiconductor) and the resulting functional properties (e.g. electric, magnetic, optical). I obtained my PhD degree in Science (Physics) at the KU Leuven (Belgium) in 2011, based on experimental research carried out at the KU Leuven, the ISOLDE facility at CERN (Switzerland), the University of Lisbon (Portugal), and the University of Porto (Portugal). After a postdoctoral period, including as FWO Fellow and as visiting scholar at the Australian National University, I became assistant professor at the KU Leuven, Department of Physics and Astronomy, in 2014.
