Published: Ekaina 5, 2023

Professor J. Iñaki Juarist Oliden, University professor at University of Basque Country and vice director of the Materials Physics Center (CFM, CSIC-UPV/EHU),  has been appointed to the editorial board of the Physical Review Letters as a Divisional Associate Editor for Chemical Physics.

Physical Review Letters is a flagship journal of the American Physical Society that publishes work in all of physics and related disciplines. This appointment is a recognition of the trajectory of Professor Juaristi, who has been developing his work in the Gas/solid interfaces group at CFM, consolidating himself as an expert in the area.

PRL Divisional Associate Editors are appointed for three years and play an essential role in the editorial process by serving as referee in the adjudication of difficult cases, offering advice on journal policy, and identifying new referees.

Since 1992 he has been a professor at the Faculty of Chemistry in Donostia / San Sebastian where he teaches several mathematics and physics subjects in the Degree in Chemistry. Since 2007 he has been teaching in the Official Master in Nanoscience at CFM. Since 1999 he has been, first, Secretary of the Department of Physics of Materials and since 2020 of the PMAS Department. He has been Vice-Director of the CFM, between 2011 and 2015 and is currently since 2020. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of the International Inelastic Ion Surface Collisions Conference (IISC) since 2006. He was Chairman of the 21st edition of this conference held in 2015. Since 2007 he is a member of the Academic Committee of the Official Master in Nanoscience and since 2009 of the PhD Program “Physics of Nanostructures and Advanced Materials”.

His current line of research deals with the study of gas/surface interaction dynamics with special emphasis on non-adiabatic and energy transfer effects. He has published more than 120 papers in international journals and 5 Book Chapters that have resulted in more than 2600 citations (Index h=28 WOS, h=29 Scopus). He has supervised 5 Doctoral Theses.
