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 130 papers. He is included in the 2016 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.
