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.
Ikerbasque researcher Fèlix Casanova, leader of CIC nanoGUNE's Nanodevices group, has recently been awarded with the Intel´s 2020 Outstanding Researcher Award, for his contributions in a disruptive technology for the electronics of the future: MESO…
Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) and the University of Oviedo employed a spectroscopic nanoimaging technique to study how infrared nanolight - in form of phonon polaritons - and…
