CIC nanoGUNE focuses its research activities on the following four major strategic areas:

  • Physics of low-dimensional structures, nanostructures and nanoscale structured complex systems.
  • Synthesis, assembling and nanofabrication of nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanotubes, thin films, nanocomposites) and nanostructured materials.
  • Development of nanodevices and its impact on molecular electronics, spintronics, nanomagnetism and nanophotonics.
  • Biofunctional nanoparticles and nanobiotechnology

The research programme is implemented through 9 research groups
