Staff Researcher
Atomic Structure – Composition of Materials

Enrique Carbo-Argibay is currently a Staff Researcher and Electron Microscopy Facility Manager at International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal. He has a PhD in Physical Chemistry (2011) from the University of Vigo (Spain), where he worked on the synthesis, structural characterization and optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles. After his PhD, he has worked as Technology Transfer Officer for 1 year before joining INL, in 2013, as a postdoctoral researcher to work on the synthesis and electron microscopy characterization of nanomaterials with optical, magnetic and catalytic properties. Subsequently, he focused his research on understanding the structure and chemical composition of doped 2D materials, by using aberration-corrected TEM/STEM coupled with EELS and EDXS techniques.

His current research is focused on correlating the atomic structure and composition of materials with their macroscopic properties by means of the use of Electron Microscopy techniques, particularly in the field of Batteries, Fuel Cells, Catalysts and 2D Materials.
