Departamento de Física, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana Iztapalapa

Dr. Mendoza was born in Mexico City in 1987. He completed undergraduate and masters' degrees in Physics at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). He completed the PhD at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, funded by a Mexican CONACYT scholarship. This work produced spectroscopic evidence of emission from molecules in individual cavities inside liquid helium; this was the first time that temperature and pressure could be controlled at the behest of the experimentalist In 2016 he started a postdoctoral fellowship in the Physics Department of the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana Iztapalapa in Mexico City.


In this work, we report the absorption and transmission properties of thin copper films deposited on glass slightly below the percolation limit produced by laser ablation; said films are analyzed as a function of the material... [ view full abstract ]
