• Critical Scaling of Dynamic Phase Transitions in magnetic films

    In a recent article published in Physical Review Letters (Phys. Rev. Lett. 131, 116701 (2023)) and selected as an Editor’s suggestion, Mikel Quintana and Andreas Berger from the Nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE succeeded in experimentally detecting and quantifying critical scaling near the dynamic phase transition (DPT) for the first time.

  • Presentation of the International Congress "Equality, science and technology. For a paradigm shift."

    The Basque Government Minister for Equality, Justice and Social Policies Nerea Melgosa, and the Director of Emakunde (the Basque Institute for Women) Miren Elgarresta, have presented the International Congress “"Equality, science and technology. For a paradigm shift” to be held on October 23 and 24 at the Miramar Palace in Donostia-San Sebastian; they were accompanied at the CIC nanoGUNE center by the Director of nanoGUNE Txema Pitarke and the Director of Digital Identity of the University of Deusto Lorena Fernández. The Lehendakari (President of the Basque Government) Iñigo Urkullu will be inaugurating a congress set to bring together international experts with a view to addressing existing inequalities and gender gaps and the transformations needed to systemically incorporate equality between women and men in the field of science and technology.  

  • nanoGUNE summer interns successfully complete their apprenticeship in nanoscience.

    In an event that brought together students, tutors and staff of the research center, nanoGUNE interns ended their two-month immersion in the fascinating world of nanoscience.  

  • The Basque technologycal company MYRUNS becomes the majority partner of Evolgene Genomics

    MYRUNS ENGINEERING SPORTS, SL (MYRUNS), a Basque company led by its founder and largest shareholder, Xabier García Roldán, and dedicated to the development of solutions for the digitalization of companies using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, has acquired 80% of the also Basque Evolgene Genomics, a spin-off of nanoGUNE.

  • Edoardo Vicentini wins the Bernard J. Couillaud Prize 2023

    "I am truly grateful and honored to receive the Bernard J. Couillaud Prize in Ultrafast Lasers."  

  • Welcome, summer ‘23 interns!

    This week we have proudly welcomed a group of 12 undergraduate students who will join our summer internship program

  • Teaching the world about cutting-edge tools for nanoscale optical imaging

    “When we developed the near-field optical nanoimaging and nanospectroscopy tools, which we named s-SNOM and nano-FTIR, I never thought that they could have such wide application potential”, says Ikerbasque Research Professor Rainer Hillenbrand when asked about the evolution of his field of research. This week, from 6 to 9th June, we welcome about 70 researchers eager to learn how to get the most out of the techniques, because San Sebastian hosts the Near-fiel Optical Nanoscopy Summer School, organized by CIC nanoGUNE, Ensemble 3 and Attocube.

  • Technology developed at CIC nanoGUNE driving forward innovation in the textile industry

    The Basque nanoscience research center CIC nanoGUNE is developing specific techniques to functionalize fibers and fabrics in the textile industry. This promising line of research, led by the Nanomaterials group, is part of an Elkartek project in which the Gaiker technology center, which tests the final properties of the treated fabrics, and the textile company Andromeda Moto, which supplies the fabrics, are also participating.

  • Researchers observe extremely squeezed directional THz waves in thin semiconductor crystals

    An international team of scientists from the Basque research center CIC nanoGUNE, Shanghai University for Science and Technology, Fudan University (Shanghai), Brno University of Technology, University of the Basque Country, Materials Physics Center (CSIC-UPV/EHU), Donostia International Physics Center and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (Dresden) has imaged and analyzed THz waves that propagate in form of plasmon polaritons along thin anisotropic semiconductor platelets with wavelengths reduced by up to 65 times compared to THz waves in free space. What´s even more intriguing is that the wavelengths vary with the direction of propagation. Such THz waves can be applied for probing fundamental material properties at the nanometer scale and pave the way to the development of ultra-compact on-chip THz devices. The work has been published in Nature Materials (DOI: 10.1038/s41563-023-01547-8).

  • NanoReMedi, an innovative research project on regenerative medicine
