History

The research group GETEF (Grupo Especializado en Termodinámica de los Equilibrios entre Fases) is in the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Valladolid and was born in 1994.

We are a group of experts in thermodynamics, interested in fluid and condensed phase equilibria. Mainly, we have been working in the study of non-electrolyte mixtures, following the five guidelines shown in the section: Research topics.

All along this time, some students of the Physics and Chemistry degrees of the University of Valladolid have been collaborating with us. They have received grants for doing research, have done their works of degree, their doctorate courses or their doctoral thesis:

Mr Juan María Fernández Martínez. Bachelor and Doctor in Physics. Professor of High School of Physics and Chemistry. He collaborated with us from 1992 to 1998. He defended his thesis on 2nd July, 1996, supervised by Cobos.

Mr Francisco Javier Carmona del Río. Bachelor and Doctor in Physics. He collaborated with us from 1995 to 2001 and had several grants related with our pojects. He defended his thesis on 15th February, 2001, supervised by Cobos and García.

Mr Nicolás Riesco Fernández. Bachelor and Doctor in Physics. He received a grant from the National Program of University teachers and Research Staff. He collaborated with us from 1997 to 2004. He defended his thesis on 12th December, 2003, supervised by González.

Mrs Susana Villa Vallejo. Bachelor an Doctor in Physics. She received a grant from the University of Valladolid to do her doctorate. She collaborated with us from 1997 to 2004. She defended her thesis on 30th January, 2004, supervised by García.

Mr Ismael Mozo Ruiz. Bachelor and Doctor in Physics. He collaborated with us since 2002. He defended his thesis on 16th December, 2010, supervised by Cobos and González.

Mr Victor Alonso Gómez. Bachelor in Physics. He is doing his thesis, received a grant from Junta de Castilla y León and is collaborating with us since 2005.

Mr Iván Alonso Miguel. Bachelor in Physics. He is doing his thesis, received a grant from Junta de Castilla y León and is collaborating with us since 2008.

Mrs Ángela Mediavilla Trabada. Bachelor in Physics. She is doing her thesis and is collaborating with us since 2010.

Mr Francisco Javier Arroyo Maestu. Bachelor in Physics. He received a grant from the University of Valladolid and collaborated with us from 1995 to 1999. He presented his work of degree in 1997.

Mr Rubén Martínez Díez. Bachelor in Physics. He received a grant from the University of Valladolid and collaborated with us from 1997 to 1999. He presented his work of degree in 1999.

Mr Andrés Serna Gutiérrez. Bachelor in Physics. He received a grant to do research from the University of Valladolid. He collaborated with us from 1993 to 1996. He presented his work of degree in 1994.

Mr Miguel Ángel Ruibio Hernández. Bachelor in Chemistry. He collaborated with us from 1997 to 1998. He presented his work of degree in 1998.

Mr Tomás Romero Albillos. Bachelor in Physics. He received a grant to do research from the University of Valladolid. He collaborated with us from 1998 to 2000. He presented his work of degree in 2000.

Mrs María Aboy Cebrián. Bachelor in Physics. She received a grant from the Ministry to do research during the course 2000-2001.

Mr Juan Lobos Martín. Bachelor in Physics. He collaborated with us from 2003 to 2005. He presented his work of degree in 2004.

Mrs Marta Fernández Regúlez. Bachelor in Physics. She collaborated with us from 2004 to 2007. She presented finished her doctoral studies in 2007.

As it can be seen, the GETEF is a research group with both: research capacity (see below) as well as training capacity. This is proved by the number of students from the degree and doctorate who continuously join the group. Above all, we are teachers, so we must spend our time on teaching our students how to do research.



Results

Our sistematic and continuous work within the main topic and the five general research guidelines has proved to be very profitable. It has generated several Publications and Comunications presented at Congresses and Seminars, Doctoral Thesis and works of  degree. The following table summarizes the results since 1994 (year of fundation of the group):

Articles in International Journals
70
Comunications to Congresses
34
Doctoral Thesis finished
4
Works of Degree (only Tesinas) finished
8
