Tomás Rosa Calmeiro

Advanced Functional Materials for Micro and Nanotechnologies
Atomic Force Microscopy Technical Specialist
5 11620


Tomás received his BSc in Biology from Universidade Técnica de Lisboa in 2011 with a bachelor project on proteomics and immunomics and his MSc in Biotechnology from Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2013, with a dissertation focusing the use and potential of atomic force microscopy (AFM) in nanoscale biological imaging.
Since 2014, Tomás has been linked to i3N/CENIMAT as AFM technical specialist, being responsible for the the vast majority of work that requires advanced AFM operation, while also being familiarized with scanning electron microscopy and confocal microscopy operation.

Main scientific interests:
- Advanced characterization of novel materials, structures and devices through advanced atomic force microscopy (including KPFM, CAFM, EFM, force spectroscopy, etc.)

- Characterization of biological and biophysical phenomena both in in native media and air through AFM
