Ana María Fernández Blanco
I still remember our first meeting at IMDEA Materials Institute and the words they said to me. Since that day, my life took a turn and I started enjoying the research field. Thanks to their support, encouragement, excellent guidance and confidence in me have made it possible to carry out this thesis. It has been an honor and a privilege to have had the chance to work with them and learn from them. My appreciation is immense. I gratefully acknowledge to Prof. Javier Llorca and Prof. José Manuel
