Setting up the new EUROPHAS deposition system
Powering wearable devices by human heat with highly efficient, flexible, bio-inspired generators (PowerbyU)
Self-powered wearable electronic devices will be key technologies for future portable electronic systems in the Internet of Everything (IoE). However, their potential is limited because of their need for batteries, which are bulky, heavy, lack the flexibility to be adapted to the human body...
Cooling for Electricity Production: Battery-free (COOLed)
COOLed will explore the development of an innovative battery-free technology to generate electricity using cold space in any place and at any time. COOLed proposes the powering of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in smart cities. This novel technology will combine a radiative cooler based on tri-dimensional (3D) polymer metamaterials and a thermoelectric generator of 2D transition metal selenides.

FINDER Research Group
Functional Nanoscale Devices for Energy. Our research is devoted to the improvement of the energy recovery efficiency of different materials and devices via nanostructuration.
The group was born in 2010, thanks to ERC Starting Grant awarded to Prof. Marisol Martín.
It is an interdisciplinary group which comprises researchers with a background in chemistry, materials, physics, and engineering who work togehter with a common aim.
The group has published mostly in Q1 journals, with works devoted to thermoelectric nanostructures, structural coloration, magnetic metamaterials, etc.
The group has facilities which cover from the fabrication of different materials (from bulk, thin films, to nanostructures) to structural characterization techniques, physical properties measurements and theoretical modelling.
