• Luis Hueso, new nanoGUNE Nanodevices Group Leader

    The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant to the SPINTROS proposal presented by Luis Hueso. The grant has a budget of 1.3 M€ for a 5 year work program. SPINTROS is the acronym for SPIN TRansport in Organic Semiconductors. The core objective of this project is to understand and control spin transport in organic semiconductors.

  • Opening of an incubator of nanotechnology-based new companies at nanoGUNE


    NanoGUNE will host entrepreneur initiatives through the creation of an incubator of nanotechnology-based new companies. This nanoincubator has been launched in the framework of an agreement signed by nanoGUNE and Bic Gipuzkoa Berrilan, an instituton devoted to innovation and the creation of new companies in Gipuzkoa.

  • 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

  • Rainer Hillenbrand receives ERC starting grant


    The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant to the TERATOMO proposal presented by Rainer Hillenbrand. The grant has a budget of nearly 1.5 M€ for a 5 year work program. TERATOMO is the acronym for Near-field Spectroscopic Nanotomography at Infrared and Terahertz frequencies. The core objective of the project is the development of a novel microscopy technique for three-dimensional imaging of nanostructures with infrared and terahertz light.

  • NanoGUNE and FEI collaborate on Advanced Electron-Microscopy Laboratory

    An Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM) and a Dual-Beam Focused Ion Beam (FIB) nanofabrication tool have been installed at nanoGUNE’s Advanced Electron Microscopy Laboratory. The purchase of these already-functional tools and a still-to-come spherical-aberration corrected high-resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) is part of an ambitious cooperation agreement signed between nanoGUNE and FEI, a leading supplier of high-end electron microscopes. The joint cooperation also includes five collaborative research projects together with demonstration and educational activities.

  • Nanodevices Group in Nature Physics

    Luis Hueso, leader of the nanodevies group at nanoGUNE, has collaborated in a research project on organic spintronics led by CNRS/Thales. The most recent results of this collaboration have been published in Nature Physics in June 2010 in the article Unravelling the role of the interface for spin injection into organic semiconductors.

  • Technion-nanoGUNE-Barcelona Symposium in Haifa (Israel)

    Celebrated on May 26 and 27, the symposium covered some of the hot research topics under development in each of the research institutions and established stronger collaborative links among Technion, nanoGUNE and Barcelona Nano Cluster Bellaterra.

  • Graphenea, nanoGUNE's first start-up company


    On 9 April 2010, a new start-up company (Graphenea) was launched as a joint venture of private investors and nanoGUNE. The new company, which is located at the nanoGUNE facilities, has been created with the mission of developing graphene-based process and product technology as well as conducting related research activities. Amaia Zurutuza, coming from Controlled Therapeutics Scotland (CTS) Ltd. in Glasgow, took on 9 April 2010 her new responsabilities as Scientific Director of Graphenea.

  • Nano-Bio integration to improve the quality of eyesight

    nanoGUNE contributes with its nanotechnology expertise to the CENIT project ‘Customatized Eye Care (CeyeC)’. Granted by the Spanish Government, nanoGUNE has been collaborating since January 2010 with biocompanies in the development of new diagnostic tools for the pathologies of the eye surface, as an example of nanothecnology interdisciplinarity.

  • 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.
