NanoGUNE is searching for outstanding early-stage and junior researchers interested in applying for a research fellowship within the "La Caixa" funding programs. The JuniorLeader program call for postdoctoral researchers is now open, and the INPhINIT program call for predoctoral students will be open soon.

Future materials are becoming 'topological’

01/07/2017

A tremendously thin layer of wolfram and tellurium has turned out to be an exotic type of material that physicists have dubbed a ‘topological insulator’. NanoGUNE has participated in the study published in Nature Physics. The physical properties of this two-dimensional material confers it a promising future in the emerging field of spintronics.

Molecular spintronics in Nature Materials

30/04/2017

Materials for second-generation information and communication technology applications should be as small and as fast as possible. It is precisely these kind of materials that Ikerbasque Prof. Luis Hueso, head of the Nanodevices Group at nanoGUNE is seeking for, together with his colleagues Mirko Cinchetti  (TU Dortmund) and Alek Dediu (Istituto per lo Studio dei Materiali Nanostrutturati in Bologna). In a progress article published in Nature Materials, the three experts in molecular spintronics give an overview of the developments in this relatively new research field.

The first nanometrically-sized superelastic alloy

09/06/2017

A colaborative group of researchers have explored superelasticity properties on a nanometric scale based on shearing an alloy's pillars down to nanometric size.

The size of animals dating back 100-350 million years ago inferred from resurrected proteins

04/07/2017

The prestigious journal Nature Structural & Molecular Biology has published a piece of research conducted by CIC nanoGUNE researchers. They have experimentally reconstructed titin fragments from their common ancestors and measured their mechanochemical properties. They have discovered a correlation between the properties of the protein measured on a nanoscale and animal size.

Quantum nanoscope
