Fernando Agulló-Rueda is a staff scientist at the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (ICMM) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) since 1988 and Senior Research Scientist since 2006. He received his Ph. D. in Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) in 1986 for work in halide perovskites. Afterwards he worked abroad for a total of four years: 8 months at the University of Hamburg setting up a Raman spectroscopy laboratory, more than 2 years at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center in New York, and 1 year at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, in the last two cases studying the electro-optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures. Throughout his career he has investigated the optical properties of materials and has published some books and more than 125 peer reviewed papers in scientific journals. In 1995 he started the Raman Microscopy Lab to study the nano- and microstructure of materials and devices. He has collaborated with many different groups studying optical waveguides, semiconductor nanostructures, coatings and thin films, biological materials, ion and laser irradiation effects, etc. He has also contributed to the popularization of science with courses, books, and book chapters. He has advised three doctoral theses at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM). He is a member of various scientific societies and since 2021 he is in the Executive Council of the Spanish Vacuum Society (ASEVA), where he acts as Treasurer.

The combination of advanced materials and processing technologies is a common element in the production of novel devices with high added value. At the same time, laser processing is recognized as an intrinsically green manufacturing technology, as it enables an extremely efficient and flexible use of resources and energy. The Coordinated Project ULS_PSB aims at exploring, controlling and exploiting several ultrafast laser structuring techniques and complementarily, ion beam modification, for processing a variety of advanced materials systems to develop novel applications in the fields of Photonics, Sensing and Bio-actuation.

The main purpose of his project is the development of biosensors based on substrates of nanostructured silicon compounds. Among these materials we have chosen porous silicon (PS) with controlled nanocrystal size and nanostructured silica in the form MCM41.
Investigation of ion beam techniques for the development of micro- and nanostructures showing (a) Optical contrast that could be exploited as photonic structures of interest in optoelectronics, and (b) Electrical properties contrast that could be used as electric protocols to stimulate specific processes of biological cell differentiation
