Nanoparticles as drug carriers

24/11/2020

CIC nanoGUNE and KUSUDAMA Therapeutics SL, both based in the city of San Sebastián, are collaborating in a study designed to measure the real drug load in individual nanoparticles with a view to using them to treat different lung diseases.

nanoGUNE reaches new depths in infrared nanospectroscopy

20/07/2020

Researchers from the Nanooptics Group at CIC nanoGUNE demonstrate that nanoscale infrared imaging – which is established as a surface-sensitive technique – can be employed for chemical nanoidentification of materials that are located up to 100 nm below the surface. The results further show that the infrared signatures of thin surface layers differ from that of subsurface layers of the same material, which can be exploited to distinguish the two cases. The findings, recently published in Nature Communications, push the technique one important step further to quantitative chemometrics at the nanoscale in three dimensions.

Hir research work, entitled Nanoscale Infrared Near-Field Spectroscopy", has been developed under the supervision of the Nanooptics Group Leader and Ikerbasque Research Professor Dr. Rainer Hillenbrand.

Nature Materials: Nano-FTIR – Nanoscale Infrared Spectroscopy with a Thermal Source

17/04/2011

Researchers from the nanoscience research center CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastián, Spain) and Neaspec GmbH (Martinsried, Germany) have developed an instrument that allows for recording infrared spectra with a thermal source at a resolution that is 100 times better than in conventional infrared spectroscopy. In future, the technique could be applied for analyzing the local chemical composition and structure of nanoscale materials in polymer composites, semiconductor devices, minerals or biological tissue (F. Huth et al., Nature Materials 10, 352 (2011)).
