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

18/06/2019

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.

Artificial atomic scale materials: discovering how electrons fatten!

22/05/2019

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

21/05/2019

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

16/04/2019

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

15/04/2019

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

04/04/2019

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.

nanoGUNE joins the Basque Health Cluster

12/02/2019

nanoGUNE is proud to be part of one of the region’s most important and active clusters: the Basque Health Cluster.

International Day of Women and Girls in Science brought to Donostia-San Sebastian by four research centres

10/02/2019

The research centres Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), the Centre for Materials Physics (CFM CSIC-UPV/EHU), CIC nanoGUNE and CIC biomaGUNE have joined forces to present a joint programme to mark International Day of Women and Girls in Science, being held worldwide on Monday, 11 February. In Donostia-San Sebastian the programme will go on until Friday 15 February with public talks, workshops, visits and seminars in which 50 volunteers from the organising research centres will be participating. The aim of the initiative is to transmit a clear message: Science is girls’ stuff.

CIC nanoGUNE: a decade of science, collaboration, training and transfer

30/01/2019

Nanoscience and nanotechnology are already and are set to become the great architects of true transformations. The production of graphene, for example, which everyone regards as a material of the future owing to the numerous properties it is capable of bringing together, would have been impossible without the advances in nanotechnology and without the knowledge generated by research teams such as that of nanoGUNE. Research into nanoscience and nanotechnology calls for highly sophisticated architectural and engineering conditions that make it possible to tackle experiments that would be impossible at an ordinary facility. NanoGUNE built a state-of-the-art infrastructure for this purpose ten years ago.

Researchers discover directional and long-lived nanolight in a 2D material

Nanolight
25/10/2018

An international team led by researchers from Monash University (Melbourne, Australia), University of Oviedo (Asturias, Spain), CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain), and Soochow University (Suzhou, China) discover squeezed light ('nanolight') in the nanoscale that propagates only in specific directions along thin slabs of molybdenum trioxide – a natural anisotropic 2D material –. Besides its unique directional character, this nanolight lives for an exceptionally long time, and thus could find applications in signal processing, sensing or heat management at the nanoscale.
