Prof. Dr. Tomáš JUNGWIRTH

Institute of Physics of the CAS, Prague, Czech Republic, EU

Position: Head of the Department of Spintronics & Nanoelectronics Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic; Professor at School of Physics and Astronomy University of Nottingham (U.K.)

Specialization: Spintronics, Nanoelectronics, Magnetism


At the NANOCON´21 conference Prof. Tomáš Jungwirth will present a plenary lecture: Antiferromagnets and Altermagnets: From Neuromorphics and Ultra-Fast Optics to Dissipationless Nano-Electronics.


Personal Background and Education:
T. Jungwirth (52) has received his M.S. degree in physics in 1991 and PhD. degree in condensed matter physics (both) at the Charles University (CZ). He was a postdoctoral fellow at Indiana University (USA) in 1997-1999 and research fellow at the University of Texas (USA) in 2000-2004. From 2004 he is a profesor at the University of Nottingham (UK).

Research Interests and main results:
Tomáš Jungwirth was one of the four members of an international team of physicists who announced the observation of the spin Hall effect, and since then he has contributed many articles in renowned journals to the development of the field of spintronics.

In 2011, he received the ERC grant "Spintronics based on relativistic phenomena in systems with zero magnetic moment", focused primarily on research into the possibilities of using antiferromagnetic substances in spintronic applications.

He is the leader of the team that announced the invention of the possibility of storing electronic data much faster than before thanks to antiferromagnetic crystals in 2016.

Research interests:
condensed matter physics; materials science; collective phenomena; electronic properties of semiconductor heterostructures, low-dimensional systems, and nanostructures; quantum Hall effects; carrier-mediated ferromagnetism in diluted magnetic semiconductors; magnetic, magneto-transport and magneto-optical properties of ferromagnetic semiconductors; spin-orbit coupling phenomena; anisotropic magnetoresistance in magnetic bulk and nano-devices; anomalous and spin Hall effects; non-magnetic, ferromagnetic, and antiferromagnetic metal and semiconductor spintronics.

Summary of publication activity:
240 publications, including 5 in Reviews of Modern Physics, 31 in Physical Review Letters, 32 in Nature/Science family journals; h-index 64 (WoS); more than 17.900 citations;

200 invited talks at international conferences and colloquia since year 2000.
