CIC nanoGUNE focuses its research activities on the following four major strategic areas:
- Physics of low-dimensional structures, nanostructures and nanoscale structured complex systems.
- Synthesis, assembling, and nanofabrication of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanotubes, thin films, nanocomposites) and nanostructured materials.
- Development of nanodevices and its impact on molecular electronics, spintronics, nanomagnetism, and nanophotonics.
- Biofunctional nanoparticles and nanobiotechnology.
The project CREATION OF A NEW R&D CENTER FOR THE COORDINATION, DEVELOPMENT, AND MANAGEMENT OF NANOSCIENCE RESEARCH IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY funded by the programme Consolider-Ingenio (MICINN), is aimed to contribute to the impulse and launch of a new Interdisciplinary Center for R&D (CIC nanoGUNE Consolider),...
The nanoBasque Strategy, led by the Basque Government, is an initiative designed to develop a new economy sector enabled by nanotechnology. It sees nanoscience and nanotechnology as instruments that can stimulate the transformation and diversification of the Basque business environment. The nanoBasque Strategy strives to boost Basque companies and research agents’ presence on international nanotechnology initiatives and markets.
Repsol and the Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI in its Spanish initials), have signed an agreement with Graphenea, nanoGUNE’s first start-up company, through which both will invest jointly a million euros in the share capital of the technological company. CDTI is a body dependent on the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of the Spanish Government. ...
The researcher Jose Ignacio Pascual of nanoGUNE, together with researchers of the Free University of Berlin, has developed a method to manipulate magnetism in atoms. This research makes it possible to drive forward the exploration of new methods of information storage and computation on an atomic scale. The work has been published recently in the prestigious journal Nature Physics. ...
nanoGUNE’s researcher Alexey Nikitin, in collaboration with researchers from the Imperial College (London) and the University of Zaragoza (Spain), has participated as a “guest editor” in the Special Issue on Graphene Nanophotonics published by Journal of Optics. The Special Issue focuses on the emerging Graphene nanophotonics research area, where topics on nanophotonics and the several extraordinary properties of graphene are combined. ...
A team of researchers from different research centers and institutions, including nanoGUNE, has shown the physical mechanism underlying the ability to control the polarization of light exploiting the excitation of collective oscillations of conduction electrons in nanosize magnetic disks. The research was recently published in Physical Review Letters. ...
On Friday 27 September, nanoGUNE’s pre-doctoral researcher Olatz Idigoras received her doctoral Degree at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) with a thesis entitled “Magnetization reversal behavior of ferromagnetic thin films and nano-structures”. ...
