Personal profile

Research interests

Prof. Luis Pereira received the Ph.D. in Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Materials in 2008 at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. His work was focused on polycrystalline silicon and high k dielectrics for TFT’s application. 

The expertise gained on oxide materials for electronics allowed focusing the pos-doc activities on the development printed inorganic nanostructured materials for chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices on paper and plastic substrates. He was involved in the team that demonstrated for the first time transistors made of oxides with paper as dielectric. He has authored and co-authored 175 publications in peer-reviewed journals and proceedings of the ISI. The H-factor is 43 (Google Scholar, Jan. 2019) and 39 (WoS, Jan. 2019)) with about 5800 citations (about 5400 without self-citations, WoS Jan. 2019).

He is currently a researcher at CENIMAT/I3N coordinating and participating in R&D projects and has been granted in 2015 with a Starting Grant of the European Research Council on the development of cellulose nanocomposites for paper electronics (New-Fun, project 640598). His current research interests are on the design and synthesis of 1D, 2D and 3D inorganic and hybrid nanostructures, chiral cellulose nanocomposites, functional micro and nanofibers and it integration on chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices.
