PhD in Physics, University of Valencia, 1990; Degree inPhysics,University of Valencia, 1985. Three years of postdoctoral experience at the European Laboratory of Non-Linear Spectroscopy (Florence, Italy) and at the École Normale Supérieure (Paris, France). Visiting professor at the University of Trento (1 month, 2013) and University of Florence (1 month, 2016).
Prof. Martínez-Pastor is expert in Semiconductor Physics, particularly optical properties and exciton recombination dynamics in quantum wells, wires and dots based on III-V semiconductors and other compounds since 1990. This research line continues nowadays focused on quantum light produced by quantum dot semiconductors and its management for quantum communications. After 2006 he has leaded/co-leaded several research lines in nanoscience and nanotechnology regarding the development of several types of nanomaterials (metal and quantum dots, multi-functional nanocomposites) and applications to photonics and plasmonics. In the last three years, he focuses his research in optical properties, exciton recombination dynamics and applications in photonics of two-dimensional semiconductors and metal halide perovskites.
He has supervised 15 PhD theses, 17 master theses and several end-of-degree works. He is author/co-author of 220 peer-reviewed publications and other 58 papers in book series and proceedings. These publications have received more than 5200 citations, after Google Scholar. Furthermore, he has co-authored 7 patents, launched a spin-off company (Intenanomat SL) and led the participation of UMDO group in 5 European research projects, one of them as coordinator (DROP-IT) and 8 national projects.
