Antonio Martí was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1965. He received the M. Sc. degree in Physics in 1987 by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. In 1992 he received his Ph.D by the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 1992 and became Chair Professor in Electronics in 2007 at this University. All his research activity, until present, has been devoted to photovoltaics (PV) and taken place at the Instituto de Energía Solar. His major activity in PV has been devoted to the study of its fundamentals, not only theoretically, but also studying, evaluating and developing the technology for taking them to practice. In 1997 he proposed, together with Prof. A. Luque, the intermediate band solar cell, a concept conceived to convert efficiently into electricity the energy of below bandgap photons and investigating quantum dots, for example, as the means to take this idea to practice. He received in 2000 one of prizes of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid to the best young researcher. He has also several times in the scientific committee of some PV conferences such as the European PV Specialist Conference and Exhibition and the IEEE PV Specialist Conference. He teaches the Fundamentals of Solar Cells at his University. He has authored or coauthored more than 60 papers in peer reviewed journals and several chapters in books.
