Luis Martín Moreno joins the Real Academia de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas, Químicas y Naturales de Zaragoza
The next May 25th, INMA’s researcher Luis Martín-Moreno, will give his acceptance speech at the Real Academia de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas, Químicas y Naturales de Zaragoza, entitled: “Artificial Intelligence applied to the sciences: basic concepts and examples”.
Luis Martín-Moreno holds a Ph.D. from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in the field of Electronic Properties of Amorphous Semiconductors. After his stay at the University of Cambridge (UK) and his postdoc at the ICMM in Madrid, in 2001 he co-authored the first theoretical work on Extraordinary Optical Transmission (EOT) through hole arrays in metallic films and since then his main activity has focused on the field of “nano-photonics”.
In 2010 he started working on two new lines of research: quantum electrodynamics in waveguides and nanophotonics in graphene. Subsequently, he started a research line on topological effects in nanophotonics. More recently he has started working on the application of Artificial Intelligence to scientific problems.
Luis Martín-Moreno has published more than 260 publications in international journals, and his work has been cited more than 30,500 times. Luis Martín-Moreno received the Thomson Reuters Award in 2016 for being one of the most-cited scientists in the world.
It also participates frequently in outreach activities and organizes activities such as the First International Congress on Surface Plasmon Photonics, the biannual international workshops on Nanophotonics, and Quantum Nanophotonics at the Benasque Science Centre, and the lecture series Nanophotonics of 2D Materials.
In terms of current management positions, he is the Principal Investigator of the Research Group “Materials and Quantum Devices” of the Government of Aragon and, since 2020, Vice-Director of the Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón (INMA).
The Real Academia de Ciencias Exactas, Físicas Químicas y Naturales (Royal Academy of Exact, Physical, Chemical, and Natural Sciences) is an academy of Aragonese scope dedicated to fostering and promoting the study and research in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and natural sciences, and to the promotion of activities that bring Aragonese society closer to the world of Science.
The usual activities of the Academy are the speeches and conferences of its members, as well as those of invited experts, the promotion and support for the holding of national and international congresses, but above all the support for research through the Research Prizes it awards annually and the Academy’s publications. Its full members have included important figures of Aragonese and national knowledge, such as Zoel García de Galdeano, Pedro Ramón y Cajal, Antonio de Gregorio Rocasolano, Manuel Martínez-Risco, Pedro Ayerbe Allué, Juan Bastero Lerga, Longinos Navás Ferrer, Antonio Lasierra Purroy, Manuel Lorenzo Pardo, Justiniano Casas Peláez and Luis Oro Giral, among others.
The reception ceremony of the academician-elect Ilmo. Sr. Don Luis Martín Moreno, will take place on May 25th at 19:00 in the Sala de Grados in the Science Faculty of the Universidad de Zaragoza.
During the event, Luis Martín Moreno will give his acceptance speech: “Artificial Intelligence applied to the sciences: Basic concepts and examples”, and the academician Mr. Manuel Asorey Carballeira, will give the reply to the speech.
