Pedro Salomé

Group Leader 
Nanofabrication for Optoelectronic Applications

Pedro Salomé is the group leader of the Nanofabrication for optoelectronic applications group. The group is focused on exploring and developing clean room nano and micro fabrication techniques allowing for the incorporation of nanotechnology in optoelectronic devices like thin film solar cells.
Pedro Salomé received his Diploma in Physics Engineering and Doctoral degree in the field of Applied Physics from the University of Aveiro, Portugal, in 2006 and 2011. From February 2011 to February 2013 he was the project manager of an industrial collaboration at the Ångström Solar Center, at Uppsala University, Sweden. In 2013 he was awarded with an Individual Intra European Marie Curie and moved to INL to work on chalcopyrite-based nanostructures. In 2016 he was awarded by the Portuguese Foundation for science and technology (FCT) with an FCT Investigator starting grant to fund his own group and INL promoted him to leader of the group Nanofabrication for Optoelectronic applications,
Doctor Salomé has published more than 50 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and according to scopus he has over to 1800 citations and an h-index of 21 and he has submitted 3 patents to the European patent office. Pedro is very active in the development of solar energy with talks at universities, schools and companies, doing science promotion, connecting the industry with the research community, etc.
