Línea/Campo de Investigación (Español/ Inglés): Sol-gel materials for suitable applications

Breve resumen del CV (Español/ Inglés): Dra. Castro is a Tenured Scientist of the Institute of Ceramics and Glass (CSIC), since 2008. My research line is the design, processing and characterization of sol-gel materials, in form of coatings, membranes and/or bulk to multiple applications (optical, mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, etc.). This line includes as a priority issue the production of protective, anticorrosive and functional coatings on metal substrates and light alloys, as well as, nano-structured layers with corrosion inhibitors and bioactivation of metal alloys for prostheses. I have extensive knowledge in the preparation of sols and suspensions that incorporate surfactants, for the preparation of nanostructured materials with ordered mesoporosity. Moreover, I work in the preparation of transparent oxyfluoride glass-ceramics doped with rare earths by sol-gel for photonic applications. Throughout, my scientific career, I have obtained two awards, more than 65 articles in SCI journals, including 3 patents. I have supervised more than 20 students, including master’s and final-year students, 2 doctoral these and other in progress. I have extensive experience in European and national projects and have participated in more than 50 national and international conferences. I am the treasurer of the Spanish Ceramic and Glass Society (SECV) and has been participate in the evaluation of Projects for different official and governmental organisms in the Spanish and International frame.
