Pérez de Lara

Graduated in Theoretical Physics at UAM (1994), David Pérez de Lara got a PhD from UAM-IC-CNR in 2003. He has had positions at ESA/ESTEC (The Netherlands 2 years), Istituto di Cibernetica of the National Italian Research Council (IC-CNR) , Italian Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) (3 years), ‘Decoherence and Entanglement in Quantum Complex Systems (DEQUACS-INFM 1 year), Fondo per gli Investimenti della Ricerca di Base (FIRB) of the Italian Ministry (MUR 3 years) and Universidad Complutense de Madrid (3 years). He had joined IMDEA Nanociencia in 2010.

Research Lines

The main research activity is focused on the nanofabrication, experiments at low temperatures and modelization of superconducting devices with magnetic nanoarrays. Vortex dynamics and ratchet effects in superconductors are some relevant topics under investigation. This investigation is related to the development of superconducting-magnetic hybrid electronic devices based on a controlled and directional vortex motion.
