Alejandro Molina-Sánchez

Research Fellow
Theory of Quantum Nanostructures

Alejandro Molina-Sánchez is currently Research Fellow at the Group of Theory of Quantum Nanostructures (J. Fernández-Rossier). He holds a PhD (2011) on Physics from the University of Valencia. He has spent 6 years as a postdoctoral researcher at the IEMN-CNRS, Lille (2011-12) and at the University of Luxembourg (2012-2017). Before joining the INL he was a Juan de la Cierva researcher at the Institute of Materials Science of the University of Valencia. He is a theoretical physicist working in the interface of materials science, condensed-matter physics and chemistry. His current research deals with the optical properties of 2D materials, with focus on ferromagnetic and semiconducting 2D materials. He develops theoretical methods to investigate spectroscopy like Raman scattering, photoluminescence or ultrafast spectroscopy. He has published more than 30 indexed research papers in journals like Nano Letters, Physical Review Letters, Physical Review B, 2D Materials and New Journal of Physics.
