Daniel Araujo, Universidad de Cádiz, Spain
Daniel Araujo obtained his PhD in cathodoluminescence of III-V related quantum heterostructures from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 1992. His first postdoctoral position, on STM-related luminescence of GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures, was at the IBM-Research Center in Rüschlikon, Switzerland, followed by a second at the University of Cádiz, Spain. In 2004, Daniel was appointed Full Professor of Condenser Matter Physics at the Lyon Institute of Technology (INSA), France, before finally becoming Full Professor at the University of Cádiz in Material Science and Engineering in 2009.
He is an expert in semiconducting materials and structural characterisation using electron microscopy, as well as TEM/STEM or SEM related techniques as EBIC (Electron Beam Induced Current) and cathodoluminescence. Since 2008, Daniel’s principal research activity has been related to the study of homoepitaxial MPCVD diamond structures by different modes of electron microscopy characterisation techniques.
