  • nanoGUNE joins the 12th Be Basque Talent Conference

    Paris is to host the twelfth edition of the Be Basque Talent Conference on the forthcoming 26th October. A representative from nanoGUNE will join the event and provide general information about the Basque nanoscience research center and its career opportunities.

  • The social challenge to reduce and prevent the presence of plastics in the seas up for debate

    With respect to all the marine debris present in our oceans, that corresponding to plastics is growing and is having consequences for marine ecosystems and ourselves; these consequences deserve to be understood, prevented and, as far as is possible, neutralised. So on 1st and 2nd October the Basque nanoscience research centre CIC nanoGUNE hosted the event Plastics in our ocean. A micro or macro challenge?, which was co-funded by the European Commission through the European project EKLIPSE, Knowledge & Learning Mechanism on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, and had the collaboration of Zubigune.

  • PhD Student Mathias Charconnet, Best Paper Award

    Charconnet won the award on the International Conference on Optical MEMS and Nanophotonics. Congratulations!

  • SOMMa research institutions highlight the impact of the Severo Ochoa-Maria de Maeztu programme for Spanish Autonomous Communities

    Recently took place a meeting between the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, the Severo Ochoa and Maria de Maeztu centres and units of excellence and high-officials and counselors of 15 autonomous communities. The programme of excellence “Severo Ochoa - Maria de Maeztu” identifies and promotes the excellence in scientific research. Its objective is to give recognition to the research institutions at the forefront of their fields, and to boost their impact, international scientific leadership and competitivity.

  • Are new materials set to generate new technologies?

    The researcher Marco Gobbi has been awarded one of the 33 “la Caixa” Junior Leader post-doctoral grants and will be joining nanoGUNE on 30 September.

  • Artificial atomic scale materials: discovering how electrons fatten!

    A single and isolated electron has a clear electrical charge, magnetic moment and mass, and its free movement can be precisely predicted. Spanish scientists fabricated a nanoscale artificial material manipulating atoms one after the other and discovered that electros around are very heavier. Heavy electrons are promising particles which endow of new functionalities to novel materials. This study is the result of an international collaboration leaded by the Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón and the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Aragón (ICMA), in which scientists at CIC nanoGUNE participated, together with members of the Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM) in San Sebastian, and the Charles University and Czech Academy of Sciences, in the Check Republic.

  • nanoGUNE services and technologies showcase at BEC Bilbao

    A great opportunity for your company to get technical advice to improve your products and processes. From 4 to 6 June, nanoGUNE's specialists will be at the International Fair of Processes and Equipment for Advanced Fabrication in BEC Bilbao. 

  • Fast and selective optical heating for functional nanomagnetic metamaterials

    In a recent article published in Nanoscale, researchers from the Nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE demonstrate the use of hybrid magnetic-plasmonic elements to facilitate contactless and selective temperature control in magnetic functional metamaterials. Compared to so-far used global heating schemes, which are slow and energy-costly, light-controlled heating, using optical degrees of freedom such as light wavelength, polarisation, and power, allows to implement local, efficient, and fast heating schemes for the use in nanomagnetic computation or to quantify collective emergent phenomena in artificial spin systems.

  • CIC nanoGUNE joins the Packaging Cluster

    As CIC nanoGUNE becomes involved in social awareness about finding alternatives to plastic, it has internally committed itself towards a technology that could offer fully biodegradable packaging. One strategic step in this direction is nanoGUNE’s recent membership of the Packaging Cluster.

  • The first loudspeaker with graphene-based technology is already on the market

    Researchers in the Nanobiomechanics group at CIC nanoGUNE and engineers at SEAS Fabrikker, leader in the premium-range audio loudspeaker sector, have conducted joint research in which they have succeeded in improving the loudspeaker cones, thanks to graphene. These premium-range loudspeakers with graphene-based technology resulting from this collaboration have recently been launched onto the market by the Norwegian company.
