Fan Yang, Pre-doctoral Researcher at the Nanomaterials Group at CIC nanoGUNE, received her PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of her thesis project on 10th October 2016. His research work, entitled “Functionalization of nanomaterials by atomic layer deposition", has been developed under the supervision of Dr. Mato Knez, Ikerbasque Research Professor and Group Leader of the Nanomaterials Group.
Itxasne Azpitarte has been nominated as top student in the 2014/2015 academic year in the Master’s degree in New Materials, which is run between various university departments of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and the University of Cantabria (UC).
NanoGUNE hosts more than 120 experts in nanotechnology and medicine at the 2014 Annual Event & General Assembly of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN). The ETPN event has taken place on 15 and 16 October 2014, co-organized by the nanoBasque Agency (SPRI) and nanoGUNE, the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center.
Semiconductor Science and Technology has selected Mato Knez’s review on Diffusion phenomena in Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) as a highlight of 2012. The magazine’s annual selection by the Editorial Board “represents the breadth and excellence of the work published in 2012. All articles were selected for their presentation of outstanding research, popularity with their online readership and high praise from referees”.
[Published at www.nanobasque.eu] Technology has evolved so much recently that Basque consumers take for granted that within a few years they will be able to purchase televisions, tablets and computers with ultrafine flexible screens that will be able to be rolled up.
Mato Knez, leader of the Nanomaterials Group at nanoGUNE and Ikerbasque Research Professor, received the Gaede Prize of the German Vacuum Society at the annual meeting of the German Physical Society (DPG) in Berlin on March 27th, 2012. The award was issued for his outstanding contributions to the research on and with atomic layer deposition over the past years.
