nanoGUNE, the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center

Our mission is to carry out world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country. 

Nanoscience is science at a very small scale: the nanoscale, ranging from 0.1 to 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one-millionth of a millimeter. The behavior of matter at the nanoscale is very special and scientists from very diverse disciplines are nowadays studing all these phenomena. 

Our research is mainly focused on Electronic/Spin phenomena and magnetism, optics at the nanoscale, nanoscale materials, and nanobioengineering. 


CRYO Plasma FIB Workshop

5 March 2024, at CIC nanoGUNE

CRYO Plasma FIB instrument, a new exciting tool, one of a few in Europe, will integrate and reinforce the Basque Electron Microscopy infrastructure

In this one-day workshop, we will present an overview of the capabilities of BRTA members CIC bioGUNE, CIC biomaGUNE, CIC energiGUNE and CIC nanoGUNE, open to the scientific and industrial communities in the Basque Country and worldwide, specially focusing on the new CRYO Plasma FIB installed at nanoGUNE.
