Born in Tortosa (Spain), got his degree of licenciado by the University Complutense de Madrid in 1973. In 1979 he obtained the Ph.D. degree by the University Autónoma Madrid under the supervision of Prof. José Manuel Martínez Duart. He started his scientific career at the Department of Applied Physics studying the electrical properties and conduction mechanisms of thin insulating films. In the period 1982-84 he stayed at Pennsylvania State University with a Fulbright-MEC fellowship. During this time he had his first experience with ion beam analytical techniques at the National Submicron facility at Cornell University, studying the damage produced in crystalline silicon by low energy ion beams and its effects on Schottky diodes and MOS structures. After this first experience with MeV ion beams he continued to deepen in the uses of IBA techniques being temporarily attached to several universities (Denis Diderot- Paris VII, Lund) and research centres (Centre de Recherches Nucléaires en Estrasburgo, European Commission JRC Institue for Reference Materials and Measurements in Geel, Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, Centre de Recherches et Restauration des Musés de France in Paris) using the IBA techniques in other fields of knowledge besides his own field of materials science, such as atmospheric pollution studies and archaeometry. He was involved since the very beginning, in 199, together with Prof. Fernando AGULLÓ LÓPEZ, in the creation of a facility at Universidad Autonoma Madrid, equipped with a 5 MV tandem accelerator, the present CMAM. He has been the director of this centre from 2004 until November 2009. Since 1985 until present he has been teaching graduated courses at UAM, and more recently at the universities of Seville and Huelva, on the fundamental and applications of IBA techniques (RBS, ERDA, RNA, PIXE), subject on which he has published almost 100 papers. He has been advisor for 4 PhD thesis and several research works of graduation.
