Ana Isabel Bico Santa

Advanced Functional Materials for Micro and Nanotechnologies
Researcher – Clean Room Processes (depositions and lithography)
1.14 11609


Ana Santa received her Master’s degree in Physics Engineering from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia – Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2014. Since then she is researcher at CENIMAT|I3N were she worked with oxide thin film transistors. Currently, her work in oxide electronics is focused on deposition and characterization of multicomponent oxides, optimization of lithographic processes and thin films deposition, fabrication and characterization of oxide TFTs, and their integration in circuits on flexible substrates.
