Advanced Materials, Nuclear Technology and Nano/Biotechnology. University of Burgos

Network's coordinator group

  • Coordinator: Santiago Cuesta López
  • Members: Santiago Cuesta, M. Begoña Torres, Desiré Granado, Lorena Romero, Sergio Courting, Ekhi Arroyo, Jordi Fradera, Oscar Tapia, Roberto Serrano.
  • Research lines: Multiscale computational simulation applied to Nano/Bio materials (DNA structures, nanocomposites...) to be used as advanced materials by complex and high requirements engineering. Recently, this group has been working on nanostructures multi-layered materials with "self-healing" behaviour confronting radiation damage.

Computational Material Science. University of Oviedo

  • Coordinator: Roberto Iglesias Pastrana
  • Members: Roberto Iglesias Pastrana, María Ángeles Cerdeira, Sergio Luis Palacios, Darío Fernández-Pello, Sergio García González.
  • Research lines: Specialized in the simulation of structural, magnetic and transport properties of advanced materials by means of electronic structure calculations that use ab-initio codes based on DFT (Density Functional Theory). Our input is relevant to the computational characterization and design of highly demanding materials with engineering applications by means of multiscale modelling techniques.
