Remote control actuation goes down to nanoscale

Magnetic nano-cantilever

Researchers of the Nanomagnetism Group and Electron Microscopy Group at CIC nanoGUNE devised and demonstrated a novel approach to nanoactuation that relies on magnetomechanics instead of the conventional electromechanics utilized in micro and nanoactuated mechanical systems. The work was reported in Small.

nanoGUNE Scholarship: call for Master Thesis students


NanoGUNE offers 4 scholarships to students of the Master in Nanoscience and the Master in New Materials of the UPV/EHU choosing Master thesis subjects within one of nanoGUNE's research groups.

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

Nature Materials: Self-assembly of a graphene nanoribbon within a carbon nanotube


A new strategy for spontaneous self-assembly of Graphene NanoRibbons (GNRs) using a Single-Walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) as both the reaction vessel and the template for nanoribbon growth has been reported in a recent article by researchers from nanoGUNE and from the Universities of Nottingham and Ulm (A. Chuvilin et al., Nature Materials 10, 687–692 (2011)).

Nature Materials: High Resolution TEM reveals chemical bonds


The combination of HRTEM experiments and first-principles electronic structure calculations opens a new way to investigate electronic configurations of point defects, other non-periodic arrangements or nanoscale objects that cannot be studied by an electron or X-ray diffraction analysis. In the article published in Nature Materials (Nature Mat. 10, 209-215, cover page, and News&Views article by K. U. Urban), the authors show experimental evidence of charge redistribution due to chemical bonding by means of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) in two different systems: nitrogen-substitution point defects in graphene, and single-layer hexagonal boron nitride.

NanoGUNE and FEI collaborate on Advanced Electron-Microscopy Laboratory


An Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM) and a Dual-Beam Focused Ion Beam (FIB) nanofabrication tool have been installed at nanoGUNE’s Advanced Electron Microscopy Laboratory. The purchase of these already-functional tools and a still-to-come spherical-aberration corrected high-resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) is part of an ambitious cooperation agreement signed between nanoGUNE and FEI, a leading supplier of high-end electron microscopes. The joint cooperation also includes five collaborative research projects together with demonstration and educational activities.

Electron Microscopy Laboratory build-up


For the purpose of building up a world-class Electron Microscopy facility, CIC nanoGUNE announces a recent agreement with FEI Company that includes the purchase of several high-end electron microscopes including TEM/STEM, Dual Beam FIB, and ESEM.
