Libor Šmejkal from the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences has won the second place in the “Best Dissertation Thesis” category in this year’s Werner von Siemens Award. Libor won the award for the thesis entitled “Topology band theory of relativistic spintronics in antiferromagnets” supervised by professor Tomáš Jungwirth.
Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and Charles University have just published in Nature Electronics their new experiment in which they succeeded to write information into an antiferromagnet by femtosecond-laser pulses.
Scientists from the Institute of Physics have achieved tremendous success in all listed categories, including the new EXPRO program to support excellence in basic research
New discovery how the information is recorded in anti-ferromagnetic materials with the use of particle spin.
The eleventh Science Café in Brussels hosted Tomáš Jungwirth, a recognized scientist in the field of Spintronics from the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The eleventh Science Café, an unconventional open discussion with scientists. This time in Brussel.
Scientists uncovered a method for data entry and storage in computing that is 1000 times faster than in common memory media.
The new discovery not only allows a thousand times faster data storing, but it may also find applications in AI and artificial neural networks.
An antiferromagnetic advantage is a speed by which information can be written in their memories. Plus the information stored by antiferromagnetic materials cannot be accidentally wiped even by large magnetic fields.
Ferromagnetic-semiconductor devices: Researchers from the Institute of Physics ASCR contributed to a review of a prominent field of modern physics
This new technology is behind memory applications such as computer hard disks.
Half magnet, half semiconductor: Researchers from the Institute of Physics ASCR introduce an antiferromagnetic semiconductor device
Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, in collaboration with researchers from Barcelona, Berkeley, and Halle have demonstrated an experimental spin-based microelectronic device using an antiferromagnetic semiconductor compound Sr2IrO4.
Currently, the Academy of Europe has about 3000 members from the physical sciences and technology, biological sciences and medicine, mathematics, humanities, social and cognitive sciences, economics and the law. Besides Tomas Jungwirth, Czech Republic has two other members of this section (Jiří Bičák a Pavel Exner).
