Basque researchers turn light upside down


Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain), in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC, San Sebastian, Spain) and Kansas State University (USA), report in Science the development of a so called 'hyperbolic metasurface' on which light propagates with completely reshaped wafefronts. This scientific achievement towards a more precise control and monitoring of light is highly interesting for the long run technological challenge of miniaturizing optical devices for sensing and signal processing.

NanoGUNE has its R&D&i management system certified in accordance with the UNE 166002:2014 Standard


NanoGUNE has been awarded the R&D&i Management System Certificate, issued by SGS ICS IBERICA S.A., and which recognizes that the Basque research center has an R&D&i management system in line with the UNE 166002:2014 standard.

Nanoparticles act as enzymes


The result in brief of the EU project ARTEN, lead by Mato Knez (leader of the Nanomaterials group at nanoGUNE) are now available at CORDIS. 

Engineering electron pathways in 2D-topological insulators


In a recent article published in Physical Review Letters researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics of Oxford, together with colleagues from Wuerzburg and Stanford University reported new insight into the electronic conduction and interference on 2D-topological insulators - an exotic kind of insulators that conduct only at the edge and that could be key for the development of a new generation of electronic devices.
