Basque researchers turn light upside down

23/02/2018

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.

Engineering electron pathways in 2D-topological insulators

Interferometer
01/12/2017

In a recent article published in Physical Review Letters researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics of Oxford, together with colleagues from Wuerzburg and Stanford University reported new insight into the electronic conduction and interference on 2D-topological insulators - an exotic kind of insulators that conduct only at the edge and that could be key for the development of a new generation of electronic devices.

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

Nanomaterials Group
23/11/2017

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.

Launch of the “Alliance of Severo Ochoa Centres and Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence”

19/10/2017

The Secretary of State for R&D+i, Carmen Vela, chaired the kickoff meeting of the new Severo Ochoa and Maria Maeztu Alliance of Excellence. The alliance’s target is to internationally promote and strengthen the centres and units accredited with this distinction, to give their research a higher profile.

Magnetic electrodes increase solar cell efficiency

Organic spintronics
29/09/2017

NanoGUNE researchers have developed a photovoltaic device that is 14% more efficient thanks to the magnetism of its contacts. The device is also capable of providing alternating current directly.
