A work in Physical Reviews Letters, led by Dr. Aitor Mugarza, explains how the edges of graphene nanoislands can become an insurmountable wall only for electrons with a given spin. Different atomic configurations at the edges present different interference patterns.
To meet the increasing demand for smaller, faster, and more powerful devices, a continued decrease in the dimensions of active parts of devices is required. The new methodology is a unique tool developed to address the gap existent in the metrology of sub-10 nm line patterns.
The Network of Excellence (NoE) "Beyond CMOS nano‐devices for adding functionalities to CMOS" (NANOFUNCTION), which includes two ICN2 Groups, has been selected as one of the Top Stories of the European Commission which highlight the achievements of success stories of the Seventh Framework Programme.
Prof Dr Daniel Maspoch, ICREA Research Professor and Leader of the Supramolecular NanoChemistry & Materials Group, has been awarded one of the 312 ERC Consolidator Grants granted by the European Commission in 2013
The Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) inaugurates its new building in Bellaterra
Research at ICN2 is promoting technology transfer in fields as diverse as health, food, environment, energy and electronics. The Institute strives to contribute to economic growth and industrial development by exploiting the new possibilities made possible by advances in nanotechnologies.
