Science Café with Tomáš Jungwirth

23 October 2018, Brussels, Belgium

Tomáš Jungwirth is a recognized scientist in the field of Spintronics that is behind the virtually unlimited data storage on the internet. The fields of expertise of Tomáš Jungwirth are condensed matter physics, materials science, electronic properties of nanostructures, quantum Hall effects, ferromagnetic, and antiferromagnetic spintronic devices.

Recently, Tomáš Jungwirth has contributed to discoveries of new magnetic materials potentially suitable in ultrafast memories for digital or neuromorphic computing. In 2011 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant in the field of spintronics - Spintronics based on relativistic phenomena in systems with zero magnetic moment.

He is a member of the ERC Scientific Council and a member of the Research and Development Council of the Government of the Czech Republic. In 2004 Tomáš Jungwirth was appointed a Professor-Chair at the University of Nottingham, UK and in 2007 a Head of the Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.
