Eduardo Gil Santos obtained his degree in Physics by the University of Santiago de Compostela in 2007. In October 2007, he joined the Bionanomechanics Laboratory (CSIC, Spain) through a national competitive grant (JAE Predoc). He obtained his PhD in Physics by the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in May 2012. During that time, he worked on the development of novel devices, concepts and techniques in order to improve the capabilities of micro- and nanomechanical sensors. In February 2013, he joined the Laboratory of Quantum Materials and Phenomena (Paris Diderot University, France) thanks to an international competitive grant ("Research in Paris"). Along that period, he learned theoretical and experimental aspects about optomechanical devices and their multiple applications. In November 2016, he came back to the Bionanomechanics Laboratory through a European fellowship (Individual Fellowship, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions) with the aim of applying optomechanical devices as biological sensors. Nowadays, he is a "Ramón y Cajal" researcher. In 2022, he established his own research group, whose main objective is the development of optomechanical sensors. The researcher is particullarly in biological applications. He aim at contributing to the development of optomechanical sensors, in order to reach clinical applications that improve the diagnosis and treatment of many different kinds of diseases such as infections and cancer.

His scientific work has been published in 35 articles indexed in ISI, 1 book chapter and 5 patents (3 granted, 2 registered). This work has received 1080 citations, reaching an h-index of 17 (Publons)..

Alicia Aparicio Millán

PhD student
Phone: 918060700 (ext. 440892)

Graduated in Physics from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) in 2019.

Subsequently, she attended the Master in Condensed Matter Physics and Biological Systems due to the great interest she developed in biophysics. She is currently at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (IMN-CNM, CSIC), carrying out his PhD thesis based on the characterization of the mechanical properties of biological entities using nanomechanical resonators.

Elena Sentre Arribas

PhD student
Phone: 918060700 (ext. 440888)

Elena Sentre Arribas graduated in Physics from the University of Zaragoza in 2020, where she became particularly interested in optical physics, which led her to study the Master in Photonics Engineering, imparted by the Universidad Carlos III, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and Universidad de Alcalá. She is currently working on his doctoral thesis at the OptoMechanicalSensors Lab at the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (IMN-CNM, CSIC), focusing on the detection and characterization of biological entities by means of optomechanical resonators.

Dra. Anna Kamila Nowak

Cleanroom engineering
Phone: 918060700 (ext. 440841)

Anna Nowak completed five years studies of Physics at the Politechnica Wrocławska (PWr, Wrocław, Poland) and graduated in 2004. She continued scientific research in the Institute of Physics PWr during next three years as a PhD student working on temperature dependent persistent photo-effects assosieted to deep center traps and quantum dots in semiconductor materials. In 2007 she received a grant from the Autonomic Comunity of Madrid (CAM) and got a job position as support research staff in the Department of Materials Physics at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM, Madrid, Spain). In 2008-2011 she was a member of the SEMICUAM group. During that period she built an experimental setup to measure single photon emission from individual quantum dots in III-V bulk semiconductors. She completed Master in Physics of Light and Matter in 2008, and in 2011 she defended her PhD thesis, titled: “Quantum – Dot Single Photon Sources for Quantum Information Treatment”. In 2012-2013 she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructure (LPN- CRNS, Marcoussis, France). She worked on development of electrically controlled single photon source device based on a single semiconductor QD coupled to a micro-pillar cavity. In 2014 she moved to private sector. In 2022 she got job position in the CSIC’s spin-off company: g2-Zero S.L. (Getafe, Spain) as product development engineer, coordinating the product development activities at the company with a work of colaboration teams in the Instituto de Micro y Nanotecnología (IMN-CSIC, Tres Cantos, Spain) and the Instituto de Sistemas Optoelectrónicos y Microtecnología (ISOM-UPM, Madrid, Spain). In 2023 she joined the OptoMechanicalSensors Lab (CSIC, Tres Cantos, Spain) as a micro- and nanofabrication engineer.
