Dr. Federico Baiutti is a research scientist at IREC. He holds a M.Sc. in Materials Engineering from the University of Trieste and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Stuttgart. He has carried out PhD (2011-2015) and PostDoc (2015-2016) research at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research (Stuttgart, DE) in oxide thin films, high-temperature superconductivity and interface effects. He joined the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC, ES) in July 2016 and he was a visiting researcher at Cambridge University (UK, 2018). His main research interests are related to the fabrication of thin films heterostructures by physical methods (PLD, MBE) and to fundamental studies of ceramic chemistry and related functionalities for energy applications. Federico’s current activities are focused on the development of novel electrode materials based on nanostructuring and nanoengineering for high-temperature fuel cell and electrolyzers.
