José Manuel Sánchez Moreno
Jose M. Sanchez Moreno received an undergraduate degree in Physics in 1987 at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid and a PhD in 1993 at the University of Navarra. In 1990, he joined the Materials Department at CEIT. At present, he is a principal researcher with the Powder Consolidation group and an associate lecturer at Tecnun (10.5 credits per year).
His main research lines are the consolidation, characterization and modelling of composite materials, especially the so-called hardmetals (cermets based on carbides, carbonitrides and borides). He also worked for several years in reliability studies of integrated circuits (consisting of ceramic and metallic layers), particularly those related to delamination issues.
He has participated in 39 research projects (in 21 of them as the principal researcher) and has supervised 7 doctoral theses. Non-confidential results have lead to more than 100 papers, (38 in international indexed journals, 14 in national journals, 2 book chapters, 50 oral presentations in international congresses and 1 docent monograph. A chapter of this doctoral work is part of an international patent issued by Sandvik (multinational leading the hardmetal sector).
He has invented and developed the CSN technique (Cross Sectional Nanoindentation), presently used in Intel laboratories for the measurement of interfacial adhesion in integrated circuits. Other relevant achievements are: the development of the Ultra T process for the production of tougher grit with application in stone cutting, the design of new hardmetal alloys for hot rolling applications, the analysis and modification of residual stresses in hard materials (bulk and coatings), the instrumentation of stone cutting processes, etc.
He acts as a referee for several indexed international journals: Metallurgical and Materials Transactions, Composites Science and Technology, Journal of Crystal Growth, Journal of American Ceramic Society, Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Powder Metallurgy, Corrosion Science, Current Nanoscience, Materials Science and Engineering A, International Journal of Refractory metals and Hard Materials.
He has participated in several evaluation processes for local and EU institutions and in more than 20 PhD tribunals.
