Dr. Manuel Alonso Orts


Manuel Alonso Orts is a junior postdoc who is working at the Solid State Materials group of the University of Bremen since February 2021.

After finishing his degree and Master studies, the latter which earned the second prize at the Federation of European Materials Societies (FEMS) 2018 Master Thesis Award, Manuel Alonso completed his predoctoral work at the Materials Physics department of the Complutense University of Madrid (Spain) in October 2020, when he successfully defended his PhD Thesis in Physics titled “Architectures based on Ga2O3 micro- and nanowires with applications in photonics”.

At AG Eickhoff, Dr. Alonso leads the activities related to Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) of oxide thin films for electronic and optical applications. He is also one of the researchers in charge of the Photoluminescence (PL) laboratory, where both micro-PL and Raman spectroscopies are performed on different material systems, such as nitride-based nanostructures.

He currently has 6 publications as a first author in high impact indexed journals, as well as one book chapter. As well as having a proficient level in Spanish and English, he has a basic knowledge of German, and is eager to establish new links with other researchers in the field.
