nanoGUNE, the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center

Our mission is to carry out world-class nanoscience research for the competitive growth of the Basque Country. 

Nanoscience is science at a very small scale: the nanoscale, ranging from 0.1 to 100 nanometers. A nanometer is one-millionth of a millimeter. The behavior of matter at the nanoscale is very special and scientists from very diverse disciplines are nowadays studing all these phenomena. 

Our research is mainly focused on Electronic/Spin phenomena and magnetism, optics at the nanoscale, nanoscale materials, and nanobioengineering. 



We are developing an innovative technology for the detection of early stage Alzheimer’s.
