The research undertaken by UAM will be
conducted within the Condensed Matter Theory Group. This group has a
long-standing experience in analyzing from a fundamental point of
view the structural, electronic and electromagnetic properties of
surfaces. The expertise of this group is based on techniques
developed for a wide range of applications in solid state physics
including analysis of various forms of microscopy (STM, BEEM, SNOM),
interaction of atoms and molecules with surfaces, transport
properties of mesoscopic systems that in the last eight years have
been successfully applied to the study of photonic materials. The
group lead by Dr. García-Vidal has specialized in the theoretical
analysis of the transmission and localization of light in structured
