About INL

INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is the first and only Intergovernmental Organisation in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, providing a basis for scientific and technological cooperation by carrying out both fundamental and applied research.

Application submission

The participant must be able to conduct research in one of the six research departments of INL:

RECURSOS_NANOGATEWAY_Ico-circuito

Nanoelectronics Engineering

Includes four areas of activity at INL, Systems Engineering, Spintronics, Nanodevices and Precision Medicines Engineering, addressing major challenges in industrial sensing, RF communications, Biosensors and Biomedical devices, Agri-food and Environmental monitoring applications.

RECURSOS_NANOGATEWAY_Ico-mat-cuantico

Quantum and Energy Materials

Works towards the understanding of both materials and energy exchange processes at the nanoscale where the laws of nature are governed by quantum mechanics. Activities follow two main research lines: i) Materials for energy conversion and storage; ii) Quantum materials, e.g. experimental and theoretical research and development of 2D materials and devices (e.g. biosensors and photodetectors), research in atomic scale electronics, and functional point defects in 2D materials for quantum technologies, etc.

RECURSOS_NANOGATEWAY_ico-probeta

Nanophotonics

Aims to carry out top fundamental and applied research in areas such as Biophotonics, Photonic nanomagnetometry, Plasmonics & Materials, Bloch surface wave engineering and the design and application of Photonic crystals.

RECURSOS_NANOGATEWAY_Ico-adn

Life Sciences

Activities focused on the fields of Food, Health, and Environment, particularly in:
1) Nanoencapsulation technologies for smart and controlled drug/genes delivery and for enhancing bioavailability and functional properties of bioactives;
2) Biosensors, microfluidic-based devices and integrated lab-on-a-chip solutions for food and water quality and safety as well as diagnostic and prognostic purposes;
3) Advanced functionalities and applications of bespoke nanostructured materials in combination with novel biomarkers and studies on biointerfaces.

NanoGatewayIco Investigador

Advanced Electron, Microscopy, Imaging and Spectroscopy

Performs true atomic/nano resolution electron imaging combined with atomic/nano resolution chemical analysis, in order to achieve a fundamental understanding of    the chemical/physical phenomena at the atomic/nano level in real materials systems.

RECURSOS_NANOGATEWAY_ico-ing-nanoelectrica

Micro and Nanofabrication

Explores both bottom-up and top-down approaches to the micro and nanofabrication aspects of materials, surfaces and devices. Main research activities include MEMS/NEMS, sensors, microfluidics, energy storage, conversion and adaptive optical devices, lithography, rapid prototyping and cleanroom processes integration, bottom-up catalysis, synthesis of materials, optoelectronic materials and devices and thin film solar cells.
