  • Fundación Repsol Entrepreneurs Fund supports EVOLGENE project

    The EVOLGENE project, directed by nanoGUNE’s researcher Raul Perez-Jimenez, has been selected as one of the four “Ideas” that will be supported by the Entrepreneurs Fund of Fundación Repsol. The paleoenzymology project aims at reconstructing ultra-efficient ancestral enzymes for use in industry.

  • Kursaal Congress Centre awards nanoGUNE

    The third edition of the Kursaal Prizes for the Promotion of Conferences awarded nine institutions. The award-ceremony, that was celebrated at Kursaal on April 28, was chaired by the Major of the Provicial Council of Gipuzkoa.

  • Dr. Berger, appointed Section Editor of Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics

  • Nature Materials: Graphene plasmons go ballistic

    Squeezing light into tiny circuits and controlling its flow electrically is a holy grail that has become a realistic scenario thanks to the discovery of graphene. This tantalizing goal is realized by exploiting so-called plasmons, in which electrons and light move together as one coherent wave. Plasmons guided by graphene -a two-dimensional sheet of carbon atoms – are remarkable as they can be confined to length scales of nanometers, one to two hundred times below the wavelength of light. However, until now these plasmons were found to rapidly lose energy, limiting the range over which they could travel.

  • ACSnano: "Probing the Effect of Force on HIV-1 Receptor CD4"

    NanoGUNE’s Nanobiomechanics Group, led by Ikerbasque Professor Raul Perez-Jimenez, in collaboration with the Department of Biological Sciences of the Columbia University (US) and the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center (US), has tested that mechanical force may help HIV to invade cells. The research has been recently published in ACS Nano (DOI: 10.1021/nn503557w)

  • "Electrospinning of Biomolecules", PhD Thesis by Wiwat Nuansing

    Wiwat Nuansing, Pre-doctoral Researcher in the Self-Assembly Group at nanoGUNE, received his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of his thesis project on Monday 23 June 2014. He carried out his research work, entitled Electrospinning of Biomolecules, under the supervision of Dr. Alexander Bittner, Ikerbasque Research Professor and Leader of the Self-Assembly group.

  • PRL: Tuning the Magneto-Optical Response of Nanosize Ferromagnetic Ni Disks Using the Phase of Localized Plasmons

    A team of researchers from different research centers and institutions, including nanoGUNE, has shown the physical mechanism underlying the ability to control the polarization of light exploiting the excitation of collective oscillations of conduction electrons in nanosize magnetic disks. The research was recently published in Physical Review Letters.

  • Viewpoint article in Physics about nanoGUNE publication

    The article Cumulative minor loop growth in Co/Pt and Co/Pd multilayers, co-authored by Andreas Berger, nanoGUNE’s Research Director and Leader of the Nanomagnetism group, was the selected topic of a Viewpoint article in the journal Physics, in which the American Physical Society (APS) highlights exceptional papers from its journals. Only about 100 articles out of the 18,000, which the APS publishes annually, are selected by an editorial committee as topics for Viewpoint articles to alert a broader audience to major achievements

  • nanoGUNE building finalist in the 2010 COAVN Architecture Awards

    The nanoGUNE building, designed by the architect Javier San José, has been remarked as one of the finalists in the COAVN Architecture Awards in the category of Community Buildings, awarded by the Official Association of Architects of the Basque Country.
