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


Apply for a Basque PhD grant with nanoGUNE


NanoGUNE, located at the Ibaeta Campus of the UPV/EHU in Donostia – San Sebastián, offers PhD opportunities to graduates in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Biology, and related areas to get their PhD degree.

Basque researchers turn light upside down


Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain), in collaboration with the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC, San Sebastian, Spain) and Kansas State University (USA), report in Science the development of a so called 'hyperbolic metasurface' on which light propagates with completely reshaped wafefronts. This scientific achievement towards a more precise control and monitoring of light is highly interesting for the long run technological challenge of miniaturizing optical devices for sensing and signal processing.

Electronic and spintronic devices using two-dimensional materials


Mário Ribeiro, Pre-doctoral Researcher at the Nanodevices Group at CIC nanoGUNE, received his PhD at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of his thesis project on 30 May 2017. His research work, entitled “Electronic and spintronic devices using two-dimensional materials", has been developed under the supervision of Dr. Luis Hueso (Nanodevices group leader) and Dr. Felix Casanova (Nanodevices group coleader).

CIC nanoGUNE is participating in two European projects to train young researchers

Nanomaterials Group

NanoGUNE is set to participate in two new projects on quantum electronics and hybrid coatings in one of Europe’s most competitive programs, the European Union’s Initial Training Networks (ITN), starting January 2018. Through this participation the center will be receiving nearly half a million euros for each project for the coming four years.

Molecular spintronics in Nature Materials


Materials for second-generation information and communication technology applications should be as small and as fast as possible. It is precisely these kind of materials that Ikerbasque Prof. Luis Hueso, head of the Nanodevices Group at nanoGUNE is seeking for, together with his colleagues Mirko Cinchetti  (TU Dortmund) and Alek Dediu (Istituto per lo Studio dei Materiali Nanostrutturati in Bologna). In a progress article published in Nature Materials, the three experts in molecular spintronics give an overview of the developments in this relatively new research field.

The researcher Estitxu Villamor got a special mention in the CAF-Elhuyar awards


Estitxu Villamor, who has developed her PhD thesis in the Nanodevices group at CIC nanoGUNE, received the special mention certificate in the CAF-Elhuyar Awards. These awards are designed to promote, reward and recognize popularization, journalism and the integrating into society of subjects and research relating to science and technology in Basque. These awards are organized by the Elhuyar Foundation with the help of the Basque company CAF and the economic collaboration of the Department of Culture of the Government of the Basque Government.

Science: Flatland optics with graphene


Researchers from nanoGUNE, in collaboration with ICFO and Graphenea, introduce a platform technology based on optical antennas for trapping and controlling light with the one-atom-thick material graphene. The experiments show that the dramatically squeezed graphene-guided light can be focused and bent, following the fundamental principles of conventional optics. The work, published yesterday in Science, opens new opportunities for smaller and faster photonic devices and circuits.

“Spintronic devices based on fullerene C60”, PhD Thesis defended by Marco Gobbi


Marco Gobbi, Pre-doctoral researcher at the Nanodevices Group, got his Doctor Degree at the University of The Basque Country (UPV/EHU) after the defense of his thesis project on Friday 24 May 2013. His research work achieved the maximum qualification (cum laude) after the defense and assessment of his work by an international committee that included leading researchers in the field of nanodevices.
