• Nobel Prize Albert Fert in nanoGUNE

    Albert Fert (Unité Mixte de Physique NRS/Thales) Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the giant magnetoresistance effect, visited CIC nanoGUNE’s facilities and discussed about present and future collaborations.

  • Opening of nanoGUNE

    On January 30 2009, the official opening of nanoGUNE was celebrated. The ceremony began at 11:00, followed by this series of speeches:

  • Nanodevices Group in Nature Materials

    The progress article Spin routes in organic semiconductors written by Luis E. Hueso, leader of the CIC5 nanodevices group in nanoGUNE, together with V. Alek Dediu, Ilaria Bergenti & Carlo Taliani from the Institute for Nanostrucured Materials-CNR (Bologna, Italy), was published in Nature Materials on August 2009.

  • Terahertz goes nano

    A joint team of the Nanooptics Laboratory at nanoGUNE and the Nanophotonics Group at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry (Germany), in collaboration with the DIPC – CSIC UPV/EHU and Infineon Technologies AG (Munich), has recently achieved nanoscale resolved imaging in the terahertz (THz) frequency range (wavelengths between 30 and 1000 μm) by the use of near-field microscopy.

  • 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.

  • Presentation of the nanoBasque Strategy

    On December 3, the nanoBasque Strategy was presented to the public in a ceremony chaired by the President of the Basque Government, Juan José Ibarretxe, and the Major of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, Markel Olano.

  • A theoretical prediction by nanoGUNE's director, J. M. Pitarke, in collaboration with F. J. Garcia-Vidal and J. Pendry leads to the darkest material

    In a recent letter published by the Journal Nano Letters it is reported the experimental observation of an extremely dark material made by a low-density nanotube array (read the abstract here).

  • NanoGUNE celebrates 'Day One'

    On December 1, the Director of nanoGUNE, José M. Pitarke, has made ‘Day One’ speech that celebrates the occupancy of the new nanoGUNE building and represents the starting point of a new period of activity.

  • Alexander Bittner, new nanoGUNE Self-Assembly Group Leader

    Starting June the first, Dr. Alexander Bittner has taken on his new responsibilities as the Group Leader of the Self-Assembly Group of nanoGUNE.

  • Rainer Hillenbrand, new nanoGUNE Nanooptics Group Leader

    Starting February the first, Dr. Rainer Hillenbrand has taken on his new responsibilities as the Group Leader of the Nanooptics Research Group at nanoGUNE. He previously worked at the Max-Planck Institut für Biochemie in Martinsried (near Munich), where he was the head of the nanophotonics group.
