Lluis Marsal

Lluís F. Marsal is a Distinguished University Professor at the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Engineering of the Universitat Rovira I Virgili. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1997 from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (1998-1999). He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America  and Distinguished Lecturer of the Electron Devices Society. He received the ICREA Academia Award in 2014 and 2021 and he is a recipient of the 2014 UniSA Distinguished Researcher Award from the University of South Australia.  
He is co-Founder of the Spin-Off Company MATCH BioSystems SL and chair of the COST Action CA20126 - Network for research, innovation and product development on porous semiconductors and oxides. He has co-authored more than 250 publications in international refereed journals, two books, five book chapters and holds 4 patents.

Research interests

His current research interests mainly focus on the engineering of nanophotonic structures based on micro- and nanoporous silicon and nanoporous alumina for photonic biosensing platforms and biomedical and energy applications. He is also interested in the fabrication, characterization and modeling of organic and hybrid nanostructured materials to enhance light-matter interactions and electro-optical properties in photonic and optoelectronic devices such as photovoltaic solar cells, detectors, and sensors
