Research fields

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 10 research groups

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.
