  • Biography

    Professor Ricardo Garcia has been a Research Professor at the Instituto de Microelectronica de Madrid (CSIC) since 2004. His main scientific goal is the investigation of the fundamental relationship between nanometer-scale structure and physical properties. In particular, he has devoted a large effort to the study of the morphological, mechanical, chemical, tribological and electrical properties of structures at nanometer level. Prof. Garcia has also been actively involved in the fabrication of scanning probe microscopies since 1994. His present research interests emphasize two topics: the understanding of the dynamic properties of a vibrating nanometer-size object and the development of a nanolithographic method for large scale patterning of surfaces in ambient conditions. The method is based on the spatial confinement of a chemical reaction between an AFM tip and the sample surface (Local Oxidation Nanolithography).
