Alfredo Blázquez Martínez is a Ph.D. student at the Ferroic Materials for Transducers group in the Materials Research and Technology (MRT) department of LIST. His research focuses on light-induced charge transport in ferroelectric materials. He is working on the wide-bandgap oxide perovskite BiFeO3 for its application as top cell in tandem solar cells.
Alfredo holds an International Bachelor + Master in Chemistry and Material Science from the University of Sevilla (3 years, Spain) and the European School of Chemistry, Polymers, and Materials, University of Strasbourg (2 years, France).
During his studies, he worked as a Research Intern at Micronit Microtechnologies (Enschede, The Netherlands) on surface functionalization for microfluidic devices using Plasma-Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition. He performed his Master thesis at the Catalonian Institute of Energy Research (Barcelona, Spain) on “Transparent solar cells with advanced NiO/ZnS1-xOx architectures” under the supervision of Dr. Edgardo Saucedo.
