    Vázquez de Parga

    Amadeo L. Vázquez de Parga obtained his PhD in Physics1992 at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM). He carried out a postdoc stay at IBM Research Laboratory in Rüschlikon (Switzerland) working on the characterization of the light emitted by the tunneling junction in a Scanning Tunneling Microscope. From 1999 Prof. Vázquez de Parga is Associate Professor in Condensed Matter Physics at the UAM and from 2008 Associated Senior Researcher at IMDEA-Nanoscience. In 2002 and 2003 was a visiting researcher at the Radboud University, Nijmegen (The Netherlands), working on spin polarized STM. Dur- ing his career he made short research stays at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, California in 1990, Max Planck Institute in Halle (Germany) in 2000, the Gakushuin University in Tokio (Japan) in 2004 and the Chiba University (Japan) in 2015.

    Research Lines

    • The group is working on the characterization by means of low temperature scanning tunneling micros- copy and spectroscopy (LT-STM/STS) the surface of epitaxial 2D materials and topological insulators. In particular we have been working on the growth of graphene on different transition metals and the resulting crystallographic and electronic properties (Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 056807 (2008), ACS Nano 7, 2927 (2013),). The properties of epitaxial graphene can be functionalized by different methods, like the intercalation of atoms between the graphene and the metallic substrate (Nature Physics 11, 43 (2015), Nano Letters 16, 2 (2016)), or the covalent bonding of chemical species (Nano Letters 16, 355 (2016)) or the absorption of electron acceptor molecules (Nature Physics 9, 368 (2013), Nano Letters 14, 4560 (2014).
