2D Materials and Devices
Pedro Alpuim is group leader in 2D Materials and Devices at INL. He works on CVD and 2D materials device fabrication, with emphasis in biosensors. Graphene devices, in particular, are developed to detect biomarkers in several areas of medicine and for environmental monitoring. Optoelectronic devices for light detection and solar energy conversion are also within his research interests. P. Alpuim is a professor in the Physics Department of the University of Minho (UM), where he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on the physics of electronic devices, nanotechnology, and clean-room fabrication.
He received a PhD degree in Materials Engineering from IST Lisbon in 2003, working in amorphous silicon thin film technology for flexible electronics, and a Master degree in Physics from the UM in 1995. He installed a thin-film laboratory at UM where he focused on fabrication of thin-film silicon solar cells, piezoresistive sensor arrays for health care, and thermoelectric junctions of telluride compounds for micro-cooling and energy scavenging. He published more than 70 papers in peer-reviewed journals and has h-index=19.
