Meet the scientists

For the Fabra i Coats residency the following institutions were invaluable in their support in the project:

The Institute of Photonic Sciences                           

The Barcelona Institute of Material Sciences        

The Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics


Mariano Campoy Quiles, physicist from ICMAB – the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona, specialist in light-matter interaction in organic semiconductors, in particular plastic solar cells.
Marta García-Matos, physicist from the Knowledge and Tecnology Transfer Unit of the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO).


Pau Mestres, researcher in biophotonics from ICFO’s research group on optical tweezers, whereby light traps and exerts forces on small particles.
Jaume Martínez Garcia, biologist at CRAG – Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics – who studies aspects of the development of plants relative to their perception of light.
