Researcher from the Department of Physics and the Centre for Research in Ceramics and Composite Materials of the UA
Luís Carlos elected Corresponding Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences
O investigador Luís Carlos
Luís Carlos, researcher of the Department of Physics (DFis) and of the Centre for Research in Ceramics and Composite Materials (CICECO) of the University of Aveiro, is the most recent Corresponding Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences. Elected this week to have his name on the Honour Board of one of the most important scientific academies in the world, Luís Carlos, specialist in the field of optical properties of materials, receives thus recognition for his scientific merit and the “relevant collaboration in the development of science in Brazil”.

“The distinction is the recognition of the work done at the UA, at the DFis and at CICECO, in collaboration with Brazilian research groups”, says Luís Carlos.

Since 1999, 70 papers were published, with more than 2250 citations, in journals indexed in Web of Science on luminescent materials involving more than 80 researchers of prestigious Brazilian universities. During that period of time, around 20 Brazilian graduate and post-graduate students were at the UA to do part of their research.

“This work is being developed within the group of organic-inorganic functional hybrid materials of CICECO with the effort and dedication of many of its members, and is therefore a certificate of its scientific merit”, emphasizes the researcher. Therefore, Luís Carlos thanks all of them, as well as UA, specifically the CICECO and the DFis, “for having created the conditions that made this collaboration possible”.

Luís Carlos, researcher in the field of optical properties of materials, is co-author of six patents (2 international), of 390 papers and book chapters with more than 10000 citations and co-editor of the book “Thermometry at the Nanoscale - Techniques and Selected Applications”.

The corollary of all the luso-brazilian collaboration activity of Luís Carlos is the review paper Adv. Mater. 21, 509-534, 2009, the nineth most cited in all areas of Web of Science involving researchers from both countries since 2009 (indeed the most cited if we consider only Portuguese and Brazilian institutions).
