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.
Young Czech physicist breaks with conventional wisdom inherited from George Ohm, Edwin Hall and Louis Néel
In a paper published in Science Advances, Libor Šmejkal with his colleagues from the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague reports the discovery of a Hall effect in an antiferromagnet. It is another extraordinary work by an exceptional Czech talent who as a fresh PhD graduate already enjoys the reputation of an internationally leading figure in his field.
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.
The Otto Wichterle Award is a prestigious honour coming with a financial reward which has been awarded to excellent young scientists by the Czech Academy of Sciences since 2002.
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.
