Santos Merino

Dr. Santos Merino, PhD in Solid State Physics in 1997. Since 2001, he is head of the Micro and Nanofabrication Unit, developing a great part of its activity in nanoimprint lithography technologies. He has applied this technology in different fields such as in-vitro diagnostic tools based on surface plasmon resonance and localized surface Plasmon resonance, chronoamperometry detection or DNA manipulation in nanofluidic biochips. He has also studied the interaction of cells and surfaces and its differentiation under physical and biochemical cues and he is working on creating micro and nanopatterns on different hidrogels. He is also working on organic nanophotonics creating organic lasers on chip based on semiconducting polymers and he has developed and published process studies on critical aspects of nanoimprinting such as demoulding, bending or lift-off after imprinting.  He is also involved in educational activities giving lectures in the Nanoscience and Nanotechnolgy master as well as in the Materials Science master organized by the University of the Basque Country.
