A new magnetoresistance effect occurring in materials with strong spin-orbit coupling

26/01/2016

Researchers of the Nanodevices group, in collaboration with groups from the CFM and DIPC, both institutions also located in Donostia-San Sebastián, have discovered a new magnetoresistance effect occurring in materials with strong spin-orbit coupling. This new effect has been recently reported in the prestigious journal Physical Review Letters and featured as an Editor’s Suggestion.

Nanoscience in comics

26/01/2016

Through the nanoKOMIK project, the research centres CIC nanoGUNE and the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), specialists in nanoscience and materials science, are proposing that the first participatory nanofiction comic in 2016 be created, produced and disseminated.

New biomedical diagnostic tools based on nanoengineering

01/12/2015

NanoGUNE´s new group, Nanoengineering Group, led by Ikerbasque Research Professor Dr. Andreas Seifert, focuses on research at the interface between fundamental nanoscience and applied engineering, in particular in the area of biomedical microsystems. The aim is to bridge the gap between physical sciences and industrial as well as clinical applications by introducing nanotechnology to finally gain added value for novel medical microsystems and mesoscopic devices.

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.

Magneto-optics on the edge

02/11/2015

In an article published and featured as an Editors’ suggestion in Physical Review Letters last week (PRL 115, 187403 (2015)), researchers from the Nanomagnetism group at nanoGUNE in collaboration with a team from the University of Cantabria and the University of Hamburg have reported on a massive increase of magneto-optical effects near the edges of nano-scale disks, where enhancements of over 1000% can be produced.

Interview with Dr. Berger published on JPhys+

30/10/2015

An interview with Dr. Andreas Berger, nanoGUNE´s research director, has been published on JPhys+, the physics blog from IOP Publishing in the UK. The interview is part of a series of interviews that JPhys+ has conducted during this year with editors of the Journal of Physics Series, and revolves around the research work done by the editors themselves as well as science in general.

The Piero Brovetto Award 2015 has been awarded to nanoGUNE's pre-doctoral researcher Nicolò Maccaferri for “his contributions to the fields of nanomagnetism and nanooptics, in particular for the study of the magnetoplasmonic properties of magnetic resonant nanostructures”.

Tracking slow nanolight in natural hyperbolic metamaterial slabs

Measured dispersion (energy versus momentum diagram) of hyperbolic phonon polaritons in boron nitride.
15/09/2015

Researchers from the Nanooptics and the Nanodevices groups at CIC nanoGUNE (Basque Country) in collaboration with colleagues at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (Catalunya) have imaged how light moves inside an exotic class of matter known as hyperbolic materials. They observed, for the first time, ultraslow pulse propagation and backward propagating waves in deep subwavelength-scale thick slabs of boron nitride – a natural hyperbolic material for infrared light. This work has been funded by the EC Graphene Flagship and was recently reported in Nature Photonics and highlighted as a News&Views.
