There has been much progress in the synthesis and characterization of nanostructures; however, there remain immense challenges in understanding their properties and interactions with external probes in order to realize their tremendous potential for applications. We will review the recent theoretical and experimental advances to describe spectroscopic properties of those complex systems. Special emphasis will be made in modelling new materials and simulate new time and spatially resolved electron spectroscopies.

Ángel Rubio studied physics in Valladolid and received his PhD in 1991. After a postdoctoral stay in Berkeley, he became associate professor in Valladolid in 1993. Since 2001 he has been a full professor of condesed matter physics at EHU/UPV in Donostia. He has held visiting positions at École Polytechnique in Palaiseau, at FU Berlin and in Montpellier. He has written more that 300 refereed publications and holds two patents. He is vice-president for scientific development of the European Theoretical Sepctroscopy Facility as well as panel member of many EU-funding agencies. Among many other distinctions he received the Fellowship of the American Physical Society, the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Humboldt Foundation, the Dupont Prize in Nanotechnology, and a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant. Since 2011 he has been an External Scientific Member of the Fritz-Haber-Institut of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft in Berlin.
