Research Lines

We are mostly interested in the electronic properties of systems in reduced dimensions.
Our research program is articulated around different research themes: Spintronics, Multifunctional devices and Advanced nanofabrication.

Molecular Devices

molecular devices

We study the fundamental properties of organic molecules integrated into electronic devices.

Metal Spintronics

Metal spintronics

We create, transport and manipulate pure spin currents in metals and metal/insulator hybrids as an alternative to conventional electronics.

2D Spintronics

2D spintronics

We use two-dimensional (2D) layered materials as building blocks for novel spintronic and (opto-)electronic devices.

Nanofabrication

Nanofabrication

We use state-of-the-art techniques to build devices that allow us to explore the world at the nanometre scale.

2D electronics

2D electronics

We use two-dimensional layered materials (such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides) as building blocks for novel (opto-) electronic devices.

Research team

Nanodevices Equipment

The nanodevices group has access to nanoGUNE's common cleanroom equipment devoted to nanofabrication. In adittion, we have some equipment specially dedicated to our research lines.

  • Review: Interface nano-optics with van der Waals polaritons

    An international team, including the leader of the Nanooptics group at nanoGUNE, Rainer Hillenbrand, discusses in ‘Nature’  the state-of-the-art and opportunities for controlling the propagation of nanolight (in form of polaritons) in van der Waals materials with the help of classical refractive optics concepts,…Read more
