Luis Manuel Fernandes Rebouta graduated in Physics in 1985 from the University of Lisbon, obtained his Master’s degree in 1989 and his PhD in 1992 from the University of Lisbon. He is currently Associate Prof. at the Physics Department of Minho University. He has been involved in research in the field of PVD (magnetron sputtering) coatings. The main activities have been focused on the synthesis and characterization of different types of coatings, such as nanostructured superhard coatings, coatings for decorative applications, conductive and transparent coatings, coatings with photocatalytic properties, solar radiation absorbers for high temperature application, miniaturized temperature sensors (thermocouples), optical coatings, etc. He is co-author of more than 130 refereed publications, with a h-index of 35 (ISI Web of Science). He supervised several PhD and Master’s students. He is actually vice director of the Centre of Physics of Minho University, member of the directive committee of the Doctoral Program in Materials Engineering at Minho University and member of scientific council of the School of Sciences of Minho University.
