Researchers from the Nanomagnetism Group at nanoGUNE have developed a novel device for on-chip selective trap and two-dimensional remote manipulation of single and multiple fluid-borne magnetic particles using field controlled magnetic domain walls in circular nanostructures. The combination of different shaped nanorings and field sequences allows for remote manipulation of magnetic particles with high-precision along any arbitrary pathway on a chip surface. ...
The fact that the properties of materials vary on the nanoscale opens up endless applications that are beginning to be part of our daily lives. These are concepts that may escape our understanding but which have been handled at nanoGUNE on a daily basis for the last five years. Scientific work which the students, teachers, engineers, doctors, architects, economists, retirees, housewives, etc. who came to nanoGUNE on its 5th year anniversary had the chance to get to know first-hand with the help of the center’s researchers. ...
Researchers from the nanoscience research center CIC nanoGUNE, the Freie Universität Berlin and Neaspec company employ nano-FTIR spectroscopy for label-free chemical and structural imaging of proteins with nanoscale spatial resolution and with sensitivity to single protein complexes of less than one attogram (10-18 gram). The work has been published recently in Nature Communications. (I. Amenabar et al., Nature Communications, 2013, DOI:10.1038/ncomms3890) ...
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. ...
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.
