Magnetic Nanostructures Group

Group Leader: Josep Nogués

Main Research Lines

  • Exchange coupling in bi-magnetic core/shell nanoparticles and nanostructures
  • Magnetic nanostructures for biomedical applications
  • Magnetoplasmonic effects
  • Novel magnetic and structural characterisation tools for nanoparticles
  • Innovative fabrication approaches

In 2016 the group has been working on novel nanoparticles and nanostructures for biomedical applications in the framework of the THERANANO project to develop multifunctional magnetic and magnetoplasmonic theranostic nanostructures. The aim of the project is to design bottom-up and top-down hybrid magnetic nanostructures for diverse biomedical applications (for instance, hyperthermia or multimode imaging). It has also continued its research on exchange coupling in core/shell nanoparticles and magnetic nanostructures in the context of the COEFNANO project. New this year is the M-ERA-NET project, PAIRED, which aims to develop magnetically- and photochemically-active drug carried for controlled drug delivery.
