The Piero Brovetto Award 2015 goes to Nicolò Maccaferri

2015-09-29

The Piero Brovetto Award 2015 has been awarded to nanoGUNE's pre-doctoral researcher Nicolò Maccaferri for “his contributions to the fields of nanomagnetism and nanooptics, in particular for the study of the magnetoplasmonic properties of magnetic resonant nanostructures”.

 
 
 

Tracking slow nanolight in natural hyperbolic metamaterial slabs

2015-09-15

Researchers from the Nanooptics and the Nanodevices groups at CIC nanoGUNE (Basque Country) in collaboration with colleagues at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (Catalunya) have imaged how light moves inside an exotic class of matter known as hyperbolic materials. They observed, for the first time, ultraslow pulse propagation and backward propagating waves in deep subwavelength-scale thick slabs of boron nitride – a natural hyperbolic material for infrared light. This work has been funded by the EC Graphene Flagship and was recently reported in Nature Photonics and highlighted as a News&Views.

 
 
 

Magneto-optics on the edge

 
2015-11-02

In an article published and featured as an Editors’ suggestion in Physical Review Letters last week (PRL 115, 187403 (2015)), researchers from the Nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE in collaboration with a team from the University of Cantabria and the University of Hamburg have reported on a massive increase of magneto-optical effects near the edges of nano-scale disks, where enhancements of over 1000% can be produced.

 
 
 

NbSe2, a true 2D superconductor

2015-11-05

An international team led by Miguel M. Ugeda (CIC nanoGUNE) and Michael F. Crommie (UC. Berkeley (USA)) has demonstrated the coexistence of superconductivity and charge density wave (CDW) order in a single layer of NbSe2, a model transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) metal. The demonstration that a single layer of NbSe2 is a true 2D superconductor is a breakthrough in the field of 2D materials. Very few 2D superconductors exist in nature, and single-layer NbSe2 is the first among them that remains a superconductor in its isolated, 2D form without the need of a special substrate. Furthermore, CDW order - spatial modulation of both the electron density and the atomic lattice (see figure below) – has been revealed to be a genuine 2D electronic phenomenon in NbSe2. This work has been recently reported in Nature Physics.
