The intermediates in a chemical reaction photographed ‘red-handed’

03/05/2016

Researchers at the Materials Physics Center CSIC-UPV/EHU, the DIPC, and CIC nanoGUNE, in the framework of an international collaboration, have for the first time imaged and identified the bond configuration of the intermediates in a complex sequence of chemical transformations of enediyne molecules on a silver surface, thus resolving the microscopic mechanisms that account for their behaviour. This piece of research has
been published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Chemistry.

Atomic magnets using hydrogen and graphene

26/04/2016

NanoGUNE researchers in collaboration with the Autonomous University of Madrid and the Institut Néel of Grenoble have shown for the first time that the simple absorption of a hydrogen atom on a layer of graphene magnetises a large region of this material. By selectively manipulating these hydrogen atoms, it is possible to produce magnetic graphene with atomic precision. The work has been published in the prestigious journal Science.

NbSe2, a true 2D superconductor

05/11/2015

An international team led by Miguel M. Ugeda (CIC nanoGUNE) and Michael F. Crommie (UC. Berkeley (USA)) has demonstrated the coexistence of superconductivity and charge density wave (CDW) order in a single layer of NbSe2, a model transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) metal. The demonstration that a single layer of NbSe2 is a true 2D superconductor is a breakthrough in the field of 2D materials. Very few 2D superconductors exist in nature, and single-layer NbSe2 is the first among them that remains a superconductor in its isolated, 2D form without the need of a special substrate. Furthermore, CDW order - spatial modulation of both the electron density and the atomic lattice (see figure below) – has been revealed to be a genuine 2D electronic phenomenon in NbSe2. This work has been recently reported in Nature Physics.

nanoGUNE Scholarship: call for Master Thesis students

24/06/2015

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.

A fresh step towards quantum computing

19/11/2013

The researcher Jose Ignacio Pascual of nanoGUNE, together with researchers of the Free University of Berlin, has developed a method to manipulate magnetism in atoms. This research makes it possible to drive forward the exploration of new methods of information storage and computation on an atomic scale. The work has been published recently in the prestigious journal Nature Physics.

A window on the invisible

24/07/2013

nanoGUNE’s Nanoimaging Group, led by José Ignacio Pascual, is studying matter on an atomic scale. To do this, it has three remarkable microscopes, one in each laboratory, and which are capable of ‘seeing’ and moving atoms and molecules.

Science: Converting 'noise' into mechanical energy on the nanoscale

08/11/2012

Scientists of the Freie Universität Berlin demonstrate it is possible to use the energy of a moving hydrogen molecule to power up a “mechanical machine”. The work, led by Jose Ignacio Pascual (currently leader of the Nanoimaging Group at nanoGUNE), has been published in the prestigious journal Science (Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.1227621).

Nacho Pascual, Nanoimaging Group Leader at nanoGUNE

25/10/2012

Starting on 1 September, Nacho Pascual, Professor of Physics at the Free University in Berlin (Germany), has taken on his new responsibility as Ikerbasque Research Professor and Leader of the Nanoimaging Group at nanoGUNE. Nacho’s research is focused on the physics of surfaces and molecules investigated by low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and related methods.
