Jose Ygnacio Pastor Caño

Coordinator of the Materials for the Future Cluster of the International Campus of Excellence (Complutense and Technical Universities of Madrid) since 2012. Research lines: design and development of new mechanical testing techniques for mechanical behaviour of materials tested under extreme conditions (from 77 to 2000 K) in air and a vacuum: ceramic, metals, high T superconductors, nanocomposites, coatings, materials for energy… Wear and tribological behaviour of materials tested (77 to 1200 K). Microstructural and fractographical analysis, EBSD, EDX, observation of nanomechanical testing at high temperature by FESEM… Interaction between the functional and mechanical behaviours of materials. Correlation between mechanical properties and microstructure of advanced materials.
