PhD Thesis by Javier Zaldivar: Magnetic-Impurity-Induced Bound States in B-Bi2Pd


Javier Zaldivar, Pre-doctoral researcher at the Nanoimaging Group at nanoGUNE, received his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of his thesis project on the 17 January 2020. His research work, entitled “Magnetic-Impurity-Induced Bound States in B-Bi2Pdhas been developed under the supervision Jose Ignacio Pascual, Ikerbasque Research Professor and group leader of the Nanoimaging group at nanoGUNE. 


Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake


Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of “magic” shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to “spin” easier in one direction. Triangulene is a triangular graphene flake, which possesses a net magnetic moment: it is a graphene nanometer-size magnet. This magnetic state opens fascinating perspectives on the use of these pure-carbon magnets in technology.

Nanomagnets made of graphene for faster and more sustainable information technologies


The EU-funded research project SPRING (SPin Research IN Graphene) has celebrated its kickoff meeting on the 7th and 8th of November 2019 in Donostia / San Sebastián (Spain).

Artificial atomic scale materials: discovering how electrons fatten!


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.
