Presentation title

Neutron and synchrotron radiation as probes to study magnetic materials

José Maria Porro has a Physics PhD in Materials Science, from the University of the Basque Country (2014), under the supervision of the Ikerbasque Research Professor Paolo Vavassori, nanomagnetism group co-leader at CIC nanoGUNE in Donostia-San Sebastián, Basque Country, Spain. He has postdoctoral experience as a research associate for 3.5 years at the Large Scale Structures group of the ISIS neutron and muon source of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Science and Technology Facilities Council, of the United Kingdom. He was also a visitor scientist for three years at the I10 beamline of the Diamond Light Source, the synchrotron facility of the United Kingdom. In 2017 he secured a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow at the BCMaterials, the Basque Centre for Materials, Applications and Nanostructures of the Basque Country. Currently he holds an Ikerbasque Research Fellow position at BCMaterials. His expertise is focalized in nanomagnetism and, more recently, in the field of Heusler-type magnetic shape memory alloys. He has demonstrated hands-on experience in the design and fabrication of micro and nano-patterned structures, as well as in their characterization by means of standard labbased techniques, combined with a strong experience in the usage of large scale structures such as neutron and synchrotron sources to complement the characterization of the studied materials.
