NanoGUNE researchers in collaboration with the Autonomous University of Madrid and the Institut Néel of Grenoble have shown for the first time that the simple absorption of a hydrogen atom on a layer of graphene magnetises a large region of this material. By selectively manipulating these hydrogen atoms, it is possible to produce magnetic graphene with atomic precision. The work has been published in the prestigious journal Science.
A distinguished international team of researchers, including the UPV/EHU’s Nano-Bio Spectroscopy Research Group and Miguel Moreno Ugeda Ikerbasque Fellow at CIC nanoGUNE, has for the first time imaged and identified the bond configuration of the intermediates in a complex sequence of chemical transformations of enediyne molecules on a silver surface and has resolved the microscopic mechanisms that account for their behaviour. This piece of research has been published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Chemistry.
The 10ALaMenos9 Festival is aiming in an enjoyable and exciting way to bring all sectors of the public closer to the nanometric scale and its effects.
