Graphene Taskforce Group of the CSIC which coordinates the proposal provides a high level in theoretical development that, with a high predictive capacity, have allowed to understand basic properties of graphene in a very short time since its discovery. Both UAM and CSIC have an extensive career in the physics of surfaces and growth in ultra-high vacuum carbon materials (Nanotubes, Fullerenes, Graphene), and provide the latest techniques of high resolution characterization of in-situ the systems and atomic level: STM, LEED, a two-dimensional detector that allows to obtain XPS SAM dated XPS images on different surfaces, ARUPS and IRAS with polarization modulator, one giving them few such equipment connected to a camera's ultra-high vacuum in the world. All this is complemented with the CSIC laboratory for the characterization of magnetism (2 SQUIDS and 1 mSv) and magnetic transport (2 PPMS), to macroscopic scale and local probe (Cluster of AFM microscopes), able to operate in a wide range of conditions (2.8 K 300 K) and H00 Tesla, 14 Tesla. UAM contributes with an installation for the growth of single crystals of calcogenures. UAM Group will carry out measures with spectroscopy tunnel in different environments (ultra high vacuum, low temperatures). In particular, will use the technique of tips superconducting, in order to directly probe the Cooper pairs in very thin layers and a cryostat with helium 3 with scanning tunneling microscope superconductor tip for spectroscopy Josephson's sweep.

IMDEA Energy is divided into six research units distinct but interrelated comprising different disciplines and areas of expertise. The units involved in the present project and make up the Group of applications in renewable energy (GAEL) are the unit Electrochemical Processes and Unit of Termochemical Processes. Electrochemical Processes Unit, led by Prof. Marc Anderson, works fundamentally in electrochemical storage of energy both in systems of high energy density as the batteries and high power systems as the supercapacitors. The lines of research of the unit are backbone the development of new more efficient materials for the electrochemical storage of power. The members of the group involved in this project have published more than 65 articles in international journals. They have presented more than 30 contributions to national congresses international, many as oral presentations and they have 6 international patents; and in the last anoshan participated or participate in more than 15 projects national or European, some of them related this project. The members of the research team are also participating base networks and international associations like the JTI's hydrogen and fuel cells, or the joint programme on energy storage of the European Alliance for research in energy (EERA) where the Institute participates as an associate member.

IMDEA Nanoscience, coordinated by Dr. Francisco Guinea, has extensive experience in manufacturing and characterization of thin films. Some Member of the Group (F. Calleja, D. Ecija, M. Garnica) are pioneers internationally in the manufacture of monolayer Graphene on catalytic metals (Ru, Ir) under UHV conditions and his later characterization by LTSTMy STS. In addition, the magnetic Functionalization of Graphene on Ru, using the TCNQ molecules have recently been shown. Functionalisation Covalent with other molecules in Graphene on Ru (E. Pérez, M. Bernal) has started in the last year. In the past two years, (F. Luo, M. Rodríguez, D. Granados) group has dedicated part of its efforts to the implementation underway of various systems of normal CVD and low vacuum for the production of monolayer and multilayer Graphene on catalytic metals (Cu, Ni, Ti, Ru, Ir). Recently works for the manufacture of suspended membranes of MoS2 (D. Granados) have begun to study of their optical properties. The Group has an international reputacion in spectroscopy prube pump in fsnsms (J. Cabanillas, J. Gierschner, S. Varghese) and nano-optics (R. Wannemacher, D. Granados) regime. In the Group works researchers of international renown in the characterization of the mechanical properties of Graphene one layer and dicalcogenure metals, with solid experience in the characterization and simulation of the mechanical properties of surfaces to scale Nano. This includes the research of friction, wear and adhesion phenomena, as well as the controlled manipulation of organic molecules and nanoislands over surfaces by AFM air and in liquid media (E. Gnecco, P. Nita, S. Casado).
