Enrique Carbó


Research Core Facilities

Enrique Carbo-Argibay is since 2022 the Head of the Advanced Electron Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy Facility at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga, Portugal. He has a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Vigo (Spain), where he worked on the synthesis, structural characterization and optical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles. After his Ph.D., Enrique joined INL in 2013 as a postdoctoral researcher to work on the synthesis and electron microscopy characterization of nanomaterials. Subsequently, he focused his research on understanding the structure and chemical composition of doped 2D materials by using aberration-corrected TEM/STEM coupled with EELS and EDS techniques. From 2017 to 2022, as an Electron Microscopy Facility Manager, he gained extensive experience in various electron microscopy techniques (AC-STEM, AC-TEM, EELS, EDS, Electron Diffraction, Tomography, EFTEM, Cryo-TEM, Lorentz, Holography and in-situ) as well as in sample preparation (including FIB-SEM).
His research has been focused on correlating the atomic structure and composition of materials with their macroscopic properties by means of the use of Electron Microscopy techniques.
He is a co-author of more than 50 scientific publications and 1 book chapter.
