Andres Cantarero was awarded B.S. degree (physics) at the University of Valencia (Spain). After his Ph.D. degree, in 1987, he joined the group of Professor Cardona at the Max Planck Institute of Stuttgart, as a postdoctoral student. He participated in the study of Raman resonances with high magnetic fields in semiconductors and semiconductor quantum wells and in the development of excitonic theories on Raman scattering providing absolute values of the Raman efficiencies. He has been working at theoretical and experimental levels in Raman scattering in semiconductor nanostructures, and his present interest is focused to semiconductor nanowires with applications in energy and optoelectronic devices. He serves as a Full Professor of condensed matter physics and director of the Materials Science Institute (http://www.icmuv.es).
