Semiconductor materials are in the basis of the technological development without precedents experienced by mankind from the second half of the 20th century. The development of these materials has allowed the production of multiple devices optoelectronic devices, transistors, LED., laser, solar cells..., that has changed dramatically our interaction with the world. In the last years, new and advanced technological developments have permitted to prepare and manipulate, under controlled conditions, materials in the nanoscale, where new and fascinating properties, arising from the quantum confinement, are observed, and also hybrid materials exhibiting both properties from organic and from inorganic worlds. Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite semiconductors or semiconductor Quantum Dots (quantum confinement in 3D), or Quantum Rods or Wires (quantum confinement in 2D), offer a tremendous potential for the development of a new generation of optoelectronic devices with enhanced properties. In addition the tailoring possibilities of new functionalities and applications are multiplied when different material families are combined and new synergistic interactions are created. Our Research Division, focus its research in the development of advanced hybrid and nanostructured materials, as halide perovskites and colloidal quantum dots, in order to take advantage of their properties on optoelectronic devices, especially focusing on: the synthesis of the materials, the preparation of photovoltaic devices and LEDs but also for light amplifiers and lasers, the study of new semiconductor materials or nanostructured configurations, the systematic structural, electrical and optical characterization of the materials devices, the final modeling of the device working principles identifying the different physical processes responsible of the final performance, unveiling the limiting processes in order to focus the optimization effort.

Short Biography of Ass. Prof. Mora-Seró

Iván Mora Seró (1974, M. Sc. Physics 1997, Ph. D. Physics 2004) is researcher at Universitat Jaume I de Castelló (Spain). His research during the Ph.D. at Universitat de València (Spain) was centered in the crystal growth of semiconductors II-VI with narrow gap, setting up the first laboratory in Spain dedicated to the research with the epitaxial growth technique MOCVD (MetalOrganic Chemical Vapour Deposition). On February 2002 he joined the University Jaume I (UJI). At 2006 he started his own research line on quantum dot sensitized solar cells. Currently he is leading the Research Division F4 at Institute of Advanced Materials (INAM) of UJI. He have been granted with a 'Juan de la Cierva' and 'Ramon y Cajal' Fellowship both from the Spanish government and 'Idea Award' (2011) in the category of physico-chemical sciences, awarded by the Foundation of the city of Arts and Sciences and the Valencia government. He had been granted with a fellowship at Weizmann Institute, Israel (2016).

His research has been focused on crystal growth, nanostructured devices, transport and recombination properties, photocatalysis, electrical characterization of photovoltaic, electrochromic, and water splitting systems, making both experimental and theoretical work. Recent research activity is focused on new concepts for photovoltaic conversion and light emission (LEDs and light amplifiers) based on nanoscaled devices and semiconductor materials following two mean lines: semiconductor quantum dots and lead halide perovskites, been this last line probably the current hottest topic in the development of new optoelectronic devices. He has publish more than 150 papers. He is included in the 2016 and 2017 list of Highly Cited Researchers of the Web of Science, list that just includes the 3000 highly cited researchers, in last 11 years, around the whole world in all the Science categories. He is currently granted with an ERC-Consolidator project 'No-Limit' on the interaction of perovskites and quantum dots..
