Marcel Claro

Research Fellow

Marcel Claro is, since July 2020, a research fellow at the Spintronics group. His research is focused on the integration of 2D materials with spintronic devices as well as the application of spintronic nano-oscillators to artificial neural networks.

Marcel studied physics at the University of São Paulo – USP (Brazil) wherein his also received his master (2013) and then PhD (2017) for his work on infrared photodetectors based on quantum dots and quantum wells. Since then, Marcel worked as a research fellow at the Molecular Beam Epitaxy Group at the City University of New York – CUNY (USA), before he joined INL in September 2018 in the Laboratory for Nanostructured Solar Cells to work in two-dimensional chalcogenide materials. His early projects were focused in the growth, processing, characterization and integration of infrared photodetectors based on III-V, II-VI semiconductor heterostructures, and also in the epitaxial growth of topological insulators (Bismuth Selenide) and other 2D materials.
