Luís António Ferreira Martins Dias Carlos was born in Coimbra, Portugal, in 1964. Following his undergraduate studies in Physics at Coimbra University he became Assistant in the Physics Department of Évora University in 1987. He received his PhD degree on physics from this University in June 1995 with a thesis entitled: “Optical and Structural Features of Polymer Electrolytes Incorporating Lanthanide Salts”. At 1996 joined the Department of Physics at the University of Aveiro and since 1998 he is Professor Associado there. His current scientific activities include photoluminescence of (i) sol-gel derived organic/inorganic hybrids incorporated lanthanide ions, (ii) lanthanide-based micro and mesoporous materials, (iii) lanthanide coordination complexes, and small-angle X-ray scattering of organic/inorganic nanostructurated multifunctional materials.

Dr. L.D. Carlos is co-author of over 50 scientific papers. He is member of the American Physical Society, Materials Research Society, The Electrochemical Society, European Rare Earth and Actanide Society, European Physical Society, and Portuguese Physical Society.
