Dr. Emilia B. Halac is a physicist who graduated from the National University of Córdoba (UNC), where she also received a Ph D. She completed a postdoctoral stay in the field of high resolution Raman Spectroscopy at the Department de Recherches Physiques – Université Pierre et Marie Curie – Paris.
She is currently researcher at the National Atomic Energy Commission in the field of Solid State Physics and full professor at the National University of San Martin (UNSAM).
She runs the Raman spectroscopy laboratory and was head of the Condensed Matter Physics Department of CNEA’s Research Management.
Her research area includes static and dynamic properties of materials, studied by Raman spectroscopy and molecular dynamics (MD) calculations. She made contributions in polarized Raman spectra of single crystals, half-life of phonons in molecular crystals, vibrational properties of hard amorphous carbon films, diamond – like materials, polymerized fullerene C60, two-dimensional materials of group IV: graphene and silicene.
She is also dedicated to the study of cultural heritage, analysis of pigments in archaeological pieces and pictorial works with the CEICAB-TAREA group of UNSAM and archaeologists from different institutions.
She has directed research projects and has formed human resources directing undergraduate, master’s and doctoral theses. She published more than 80 papers in international scientific journals.
