A new dimension in chemical nanoimaging

22/02/2017

Researchers from the Basque institutions CIC nanoGUNE, Ikerbasque and Cidetec, and the German Robert Koch-Institut report the development of hyperspectral infrared nanoimaging. It is based on Fourier transform infrared nanospectroscopy (nano-FTIR) and enables highly sensitive spectroscopic imaging of chemical composition with nanoscale spatial resolution (Amenabar et al., Nat. Commun. 8, 14402 doi: 10.1038/ncomms14402 (2017)).

ERC Proof of Concept for Luis Hueso

01/03/2017

CIC nanoGUNE’s Nanodevices Group receives a grant of 150,000 euros from the European Commission through the ERC Proof of Concept program, which aims to put into practice the innovative potential of the ideas generated in cutting-edge research projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The FAST TestOM project of the Nanodevices Group of nanoGUNE is one of the 133 European projects to receive backing from the European Research Council.

DIPC, CFM and nanoGUNE researchers are the co-authors of one of the twelve most important papers in the history of the Journal of Physics

11/11/2016

Daniel Sánchez-Portal, of the Centre for Materials Physics (CSIC-UPV/EHU), and Emilio Artacho, Cambridge University professor and Ikerbasque researcher at CICnanoGUNE, both members of the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), are co-authors of one of the twelve most important papers in the 50-year history of the Journal of Physics series, according to the publication’s editors. The work selected was published in 2002 and presented a new, efficient atomic simulation code known by its acronym SIESTA; its use is very widespread today.

On-chip observation of THz graphene plasmons

THz plasmons of extremely short wavelength propagate along the graphene sheet of a THz detector, as visualized with photocurrent images obtained by scanning probe microscopy.
04/11/2016

Researchers developed a technique for imaging THz photocurrents with nanoscale resolution, and applied it to visualize strongly compressed THz waves (plasmons) in a graphene photodetector. The extremely short wavelengths and highly concentrated fields of these plasmons open new venues for the development of miniaturized optoelectronic THz devices (Nature Nanotechnology DOI: 10.1038/NNANO.2016.185)

Graphene does double duty for plasmons

01/10/2016

A study by ICFO, CIC nanoGUNE, Columbia University and the National Institute for Materials Science in Japan published in Nature Materials demonstrates how graphene can be employed simultaneously as both a plasmonic medium and detector.
