About Us

iqfr enThe Institute of Physical Chemistry "Rocasolano" (IQFR) is located at the seat of the former National Institute of Physics and Chemistry, that in the period 1932-1936 spearheaded Spanish science. These days, the research interests of the IQFR range from fundamental aspects of physical chemistry to nanoscience and atmospheric chemistry or the application of physical-chemical techniques to problems of biological interest. Our research priorities include a variety of subjects, such as structural biology, functional biophysics, chemical kinetics and reactivity, computational chemistry and physics, laser design and applications, or surface structure and chemistry, together with other topics connected to interdisciplinary research in the field materials science and nanotechnology and the molecular basis of biological processes.

Europhysics Letters Presentation Award to Dr. Luis Cerdán

cerdanDr. Luis Cerdán, postdoctoral researcher at IQFR, has been distinguished with the “EPL Presentation Award 2017” in recognition of the best oral presentation at the IX Jornadas de Jóvenes Investigadores en Física Atómica y Molecular (J2IFAM 2017) for his work entitled “Enhanced and exotic laser performance in novel BODIPY dyes”. The prize, sponsored by the Europhysics Letters (EPL) journal, consists of a certificate and an economic reward.
The J2IFAM conferences, sponsored by the Grupo Especializado de Física Atómica y Molecular (GEFAM) of the RSEF and RSEQ, started nearly a decade ago and have run nine editions throughout the national territory. They are characteristically organized by and for young doctoral or postdoctoral researchers and intend to promote the dissemination of their research work and foster the establishment of collaborations between them.

 

 

Alejandro Manjavacas, granted with the Young Investigator 2016 Prize

manjavacasAlejandro Manjavacas Arévalo, a former PhD student at the IQFR, has been distinguished with the Young Investigator 2016 prize, granted jointly by the Spanish Physical Royal Society and the BBVA Foundation.
Dr Manjavaca, now at the New Mexico University (USA) as Associated Investigator, carried out his PhD research on “Light-matter interactions at nano-level” at this Institute, under the supervision of Prof. J. García Abajo. His doctoral dissertation, together with that of Dr. Luis Cerdán also from the IQFR, was distinguished with the “Premio Extraordinario 2012-2013” by the Complutense University of Madrid.
