Dr. Bogdana BORCA

Scientific Researcher III

Laboratory of Magnetism and Superconductivity



Dr. Bogdana Borca is currently a researcher at the National Institute of Materials Physics (NIMP), Romania, since the end of 2015.

She received her PhD degree in Physics in 2007 in a binational program at the Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble, France and at the Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The research activity was carried out at the Institut Néel, France and was focused on the investigation of the growth methods of nanostructures for developing strategies to control their magnetic properties.

Before assuming her current position, Dr. Borca was a postdoctoral research fellow at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain (2007-2011) and at Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany (2011-2015), investigating the electronic properties and functionalities of graphene on metals and of different organic molecules and nanostructures.

After joining NIMP, Dr. Borca has been a visiting scientist at the Institute for Applied Physics, Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany; Physics of Interfaces and Nanomaterials (PIN) laboratory, University of Twente, Netherlands; Peter Grünberg Institute, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany and Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany.
