Mariona Coll

Instituto de Ciencia y Materiales de Barcelona, Spain


Mariona Coll received her degree in chemistry from University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain, in 2002. In 2007, she earned her Ph.D. degree in materials science from UA Barcelona performing the research at ICMAB-CSIC. She was a Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, holding a joint appointment at NIST, USA, for nearly 3 years. Now she is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), Spain, in the superconducting materials and large scale nanostructures group. Her research interests focus on the development of radically new processes to generate and stabilize nanoscale engineered functional oxide thin films and nanostructures (insulating, magnetic, ferroelectric, superconductor, and photovoltaic) combining chemical solution deposition (CSD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD). She has made relevant contributions to the field of superconductivity helping establishing the basics to develop new and cost-effective chemical solution approaches to implement YBa2Cu3O7 and oxide buffer layer materials in long-length conductor processes obtaining world-leading performances. Also, she has developed and stabilized epitaxial functional oxides at low temperature by atomic layer deposition which has a huge impact in film properties, applications, and fabrication cost. She is on the Editorial Board of Scientific Reports, Nature Publishing Group. She holds 1 patent and 2 book chapters and has coauthored more than 33 publications with more than 500 citations by other references.
