CIC nanoGUNE receives 1.5 million euros from the European Commission


Three of CIC nanoGUNE’s research projects have been selected in the European FET Open (Future and Emerging Technologies) call. FET Open initiatives aim to strengthen major, high-risk, scientific and technical research projects carried out in collaboration. They are projects linked to the creation of new groundbreaking technologies.  

A project coordinated by CIC nanoGUNE receives nearly 4 million euros from the European Commission

Fèlix Casanova y Luis Hueso

CIC nanoGUNE is coordinating the SPEAR project, which seeks to explore new materials for the next generation of computer memories and processors; five European academic institutions (CEA-France, ETH Zürich-Switzerland, IMEC-Belgium, U. Hamburg-Germany, Martin Luther University Halle–Germany) and three European companies (ANTAIOS-France, QZabre-Switzerland, NanOsc-Sweden) are also involved in the project.

Low-power spin detection in non-magnetic systems


A team of researchers from Université Grenoble Alpes - CNRS - Spintec, Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS-Thales, and Université d'Evry, and also including Dr. Diogo. C Vaz, currently at CIC nanoGUNE, reports on an alternative strategy to achieve low-power spin detection in a non-magnetic system. The results have now been published in Nature.

CIC nanoGUNE and INTEL bring the MESO technology a step closer to reality


The Basque nanoscience research center CIC nanoGUNE and the multinational company Intel, the world’s largest manufacturer of integrated circuits, have been working hard in the last one and a half years in a disruptive technology for the electronics of the future: MESO technology. This technology integrates logic and memory in the same circuit and for this it needs to read and write the information stored in magnetic bits. We need the two functions to operate at the same voltage for the circuit to work. In the last work, recently published in Nature Electronics, the team has achieved to increase by 10,000 times the output voltage for the “reading” operation.

PhD thesis by Juan Manuel Gomez: Spin-transport in magnetic insulator/heavy metal heterostructures


Juan Manuel Gomez, Pre-doctoral Researcher at the Nanodevices group at nanoGUNE, received his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of his thesis project at the beginning of 2020. His research work, entitled “Spin-transport in magnetic insulator/heavy metal heterostructures" has been developed under the supervision of Felix Casanova, Ikerbasque Research Professor and group co-leader at the nanoGUNE's Nanodevices group


nanoGUNE PhD Workshop 2020


The PhD researchers of nanoGUNE have organized a one-day event to celebrate the 11th anniversary of nanoGUNE. The workshop has consisted of three sessions: Spin-off inside and outside of nanoGUNE, Escape the lab, and a poster session.

nanoGUNE launches a new summer internship call for university students

Summer Internships

CIC nanoGUNE has just launched the call in its Summer Internship Programme, which it runs every year; it offers university students the chance to get to know first-hand about the activity of a world-class research centre.

Edurne Sagasta, winner of the GEFES 2019 Award for best experimental thesis

Edurne Sagasta

The researcher Edurne Sagasta has been awarded the prize for best experimental PhD thesis by the Condensed Matter Physics Division (GEFES) of the Spanish Royal Physics Society (RSEF). The thesis entitled Spin-to-charge current conversion in systems with spin-orbit coupling was worked on at CIC nanoGUNE.

CIC nanoGUNE collaborates with Intel to open up the way for future computers


The Basque nanoscience research centre CIC nanoGUNE and the multinational company Intel, the world’s largest manufacturer of integrated circuits, are working together on a state-of-the-art project that seeks to develop what Intel refers to as the “MESO logic”: a new technology that combines memory, interconnections and logic requirements for future computing needs.
