ETP Nanomedicine Annual Event 2014

Nanomedicine Annual Event

NanoGUNE hosts more than 120 experts in nanotechnology and medicine at the 2014 Annual Event & General Assembly of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN). The ETPN event has taken place on 15 and 16 October 2014, co-organized by the nanoBasque Agency (SPRI) and nanoGUNE, the Basque Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center.

Two-Dimensional Programmable Manipulation of Magnetic Nanoparticles on-Chip


Researchers from the Nanomagnetism Group at nanoGUNE have developed a novel device for on-chip selective trap and two-dimensional remote manipulation of single and multiple fluid-borne magnetic particles using field controlled magnetic domain walls in circular nanostructures. The combination of differently shaped nanorings and field sequences allows for the remote manipulation of magnetic particles with high precision along any arbitrary pathway on a chip surface.

PRL: Tuning the Magneto-Optical Response of Nanosize Ferromagnetic Ni Disks Using the Phase of Localized Plasmons


A team of researchers from different research centers and institutions, including nanoGUNE, has shown the physical mechanism underlying the ability to control the polarization of light exploiting the excitation of collective oscillations of conduction electrons in nanosize magnetic disks. The research was recently published in Physical Review Letters.

Magnetization reversal behavior of ferromagnetic thin films and nano-structures


On Friday 27 September, nanoGUNE’s pre-doctoral researcher Olatz Idigoras received her doctoral Degree at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) with a thesis entitled “Magnetization reversal behavior of ferromagnetic thin films and nano-structures”

2nd nanoIKER Workshop


The 2nd nanoIKER Workshop took place at Tecnalia Headquarters in the Science & Technology Park of Bizkaia on June 10, 2013.

New technology in the magnetic cooling of chips


A team of CIC nanoGUNE researchers has participated in the development of a new technology that will enable the environmental impact to be minimized. The work has been published in the prestigious journal Nature Materials.

Crystallography drives Exchange Bias in epitaxial Co/CoO bilayer films


In a recent article, published in Physical Review Letters (PRL 109, 177205 (2012)) researchers from the Nanomagnetism group and Electron-Microscopy laboratory at nanoGUNE have reported on the crystallography-driven appearance of positive exchange bias in epitaxial Co/CoO bilayers.

Nature Communications: Correlative infrared-electron nanoscopy


A new nanoimaging method for resolving the interplay between local structure, conductivity, and chemical composition

Nanotechweb: new property of nanoscale metallic ferromagnets


As reported in nanotechweb, researchers at nanoGUNE and Chalmers University have discovered a fundamentally new property in nanoscale ferromagnetic nanoantennas – their ability to control the sign of rotation of polarized scattered light. This “Kerr rotation reversal” effect arises from the interplay between magneto-optical and nanoplasmonic properties of such nanoantennas and could be exploited to make novel biochemosensors and in a variety of nanophotonics applications. The work was published in Nano Letters.

Symposium on nanomagnetism co-organized by nanoGUNE


Dr. Andreas Berger, nanoGUNE Research Director and leader of the nanomagnetism group, co-organizes New Trends and Developments in Nanomagnetism, a symposium that will be celebrated in the framework of the Spring Meeting 2012 of the Materials Research Society. This symposium is focusing on recent trends in nanoscale magnetism and related technologies like advanced characterization techniques and fabrication processes that foster or initiate new development. The goal is to emphasize the strong mutual interaction between current research and present and future technologies.
