Fernando Agulló-Rueda is a research scientist at the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (ICMM), a center from the Spanish National Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC). After obtaining a PhD in Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) in 1986, he had several postdoctoral stays at the University of Hamburg (8 months), the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York (27 months), and the Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart (12 months). Since 1988, he works at the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM), first as a research associate and from 2006 as a senior research scientist. His research focuses on the use of Raman Spectroscopy and other optical techniques for the characterization of materials and the study of the correlation between the micro- and the nanostructure and other properties of interest. Among others he has researched materials with interest in photonics, nanotechnology, and energy, as semiconductor nanostructures (superlattices of porous silicon and GaAs/AlGaAs), functional oxides or biological materials such as spider silk. He has studied the effect of electric fields, irradiation with ions or pulsed lasers, temperature or pressure on the nanostructure or the optical and electrical properties of materials. He has collaborated with various national and international research groups and has mounted several experimental systems, as the Raman microscopy laboratory of the ICMM in 1995. As a result of this work, he has published over 120 research papers in international scientific journals, which have been cited over 2500 times. He is co-author of 3 monographic books ("Electrooptics", "Fundamentals of microelectronics, nanoelectronics and Photonics" and "Nanotechnology for microelectronics and optoelectronics") and author of 7 chapters in technical books and 3 chapters in popularization books.
