Dr. Enrique Burzuri Linares
Enrique Burzurí obtained his BSc (2006) and MSc (2007) in Physics from the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragón (CSIC) and Universidad de Zaragoza in Spain. He obtained his PhD diploma in 2011 at this same University under the supervision of Prof. Fernando Luis. Thereafter he moved to Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands) to join the Molecular Electronics and Devices group led by Prof. Herre S. J. van der Zant as a postdoctoral researcher. There, he was awarded with a VENI fellowship and led the FET European project ACMOL. In January 2017 he joined IMDEA Nanoscience as Amarout II fellow in Prof. Emilio M. Pérez group. In 2018 he was promoted to Assistant Research Prof. (tenure track). During this period, he was also awarded with a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship and an Atracción del Talento Investigador fellowship.
The group has varied interests in the physics of molecular and low-dimensional materials and their incorporation into nanoscale devices. In particular, we are working in:
1) 2D and 1D materials: We are interested in the fundamental properties of 2D materials and the fabrication of (opto)electronics and spintronics devices. We have assembled scalable nano-transistors based on franckeite heterostructures obtained by liquid-phase exfoliation (Nanoscale 2018). We are also interested in the controlled positioning of SWNT in complex devices. We have fabricated Field-Effect Transistors with chemically modified SWNTs selectively positioned by dielectrophoresis (Angewandte Chemie Int Ed. 2017). We are currently working in the hybridization of SWNTs with superconducting circuits.
2) Molecular Magnetism: We are also very interested in fundamental studies of the magnetism of molecules and other nanoscale materials (coordination polymers, 2D materials, mechanically interlocked magnetic molecules).
