Luis Serrano studied Physics at the University of Zaragoza, where he also finished his PhD in 2014 as a member of the Aragon Material Science Institute. During these years his work was focused on nanotechnology with an emphasis in magnetic materials, nanofabrication using Focused Electron Beam Induced Deposition, microscopy and transport measurements. This work has been collected in the thesis “Cobalt nanostructures grown by focused electron beam induced deposition for spintronic applications”.
In addition to his research, he gave lectures on the experimental part of the subjects Physics I and Physics II of the first year of the Industrial Engineering Degree at the University of Zaragoza for two years. Subsequently he moved to the Centre d’Élaboration de Matériaux et d’Etudes Structurales (CEMES) in Toulouse as postdoctoral researcher in the group of nanomaterials for one year and a half. There, using the skills he developed during the PhD, he continued with his work on novel three-dimensional magnetic nanostructures and complex nanofabrication processes using focused ion beam.
In September of 2015 he joined GrapheneNanotech as development scientist of the quality control group.
