• Transforming Digital Technologies through the SPEAR ITN project

    SPEAR ITN project (Spin-orbit Materials, Emergent Phenomena and Related Technologies Training), coordinated by CIC nanoGUNE, is a multidisciplinary European network training a new generation of highly skilled researchers able to address future memory technologies and nanoelectronics beyond CMOS. 

  • Quantum hardware to be developed at CIC nanoGUNE

    The Basque nanoscience research center opens a new group for the development of quantum hardware.

    A new tower will be built, which will be housing the laboratories of the new group and also a leading scale-up company in quantum technologies.

    NanoGUNE will be developing in San Sebastian chips for the construction of quantum computers based on semiconductor technology.

  • Summer’24 interns are here!

    Twelve undergraduate students join nanoGUNE's Summer Internship Program.

  • nanoGUNE joins Pint of Science Donostia 2024

    The international scientific dissemination festival will take place from 13 to 15 May in 25 different countries all over the world, where city-bars become improvised laboratories to showcase the latest scientific advances. Three researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, Javier PlouJon Ortuzar Andres and Stefano Trivini, will be part of the festival this year, in which nanoGUNE is also involved as local sponsor.

  • Research positions and industry, hand in hand

    CIC nanoGUNE launches a call —Industry Collaborative Research Positions— which seeks to facilitate the technological development of Basque companies so that they can provide innovative solutions to their industrial challenges thanks to the incorporation of highly qualified researchers.

  • Electrical control of magnetism by electric field and current-induced torques

    In a recent review article published in Reviews of Modern Physics, Fèlix Casanova from the Nanodevices group at CIC nanoGUNE, Prof. Albert Fert, Nobel Prize in Physics, and his colleagues review the state of the art of electrical control of magnetism and give scientific and technological future persperctives.

  • The building block for magnetoelectric spin-orbit logic

    In a recent article published in Nature Communications an international team, led by researchers from the Nanodevices group at CIC nanoGUNE, suceeded in voltage-based magnetization switching and reading of magnetoelectric spin-orbit nanodevices. This study constitutes aproof of principle of these nanodevices, which are the building blocks for magnetoelectric spin-orbit (MESO) logic, opening a new avenue for low-power beyond-CMOS technologies.

  • Developing nanomaterials to conserve cultural heritage

    Aranzazu Sierra-Fernández, PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, has received the Junior Leader postdoctoral fellowship from the "la Caixa" Foundation to pursue a line of research in the Nanomaterials group of CIC nanoGUNE focusing on the study of new methodologies to conserve cultural heritage. The project sets out to develop protective coatings for the conservation of cultural assets, with an emphasis on strength, toughness, durability and compatibility with building materials.

  • A nanofabrication instrument installed at nanoGUNE enhances the Basque electron microscopy infrastructure

    CIC nanoGUNE ran a workshop today to present a new instrument (the CRYO Plasma FIB); it is one of the few in Europe and across the world and has been installed at the center recently. An agreement to enhance the Basque electron microscopy infrastructure was also presented. It was signed by bioGUNE, biomaGUNE, energiGUNE and nanoGUNE, cooperative research centers (CICs) that belong to the BRTA alliance, and its purpose is to offer research groups and industrial customers comprehensive electron microscopy solutions.

  • CIC nanoGUNE obtains three Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship projects

    The Cooperative Research Center nanoGUNE has achieved three Marie-Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship projects in the 2023 call, obtaining 624.071,52€ in total. The objective of this European programme is to support the education and the professional development of postdoctoral researchers by offering them a contract for 12 to 36 months including personnel recruitment and research expenses. This is an initiative of the European Commission inside the Horizon Europe program, and it funds researchers of any nationality with a maximum of eight years of research experience.
