The IEEE Magnetics Society Career Achievement Award 2019 was given to IRIG (formerly INAC) researcher and Spintec cofounder Bernard Dieny in Washington.
The award has traditionally gone to the greatest minds in international magnetism research: Bernard Dieny is certainly no exception, with a total of 430 publications and 70 patents to his name. He played a pivotal role in the emergence of the giant magnetoresistance spin valves that long equipped hard drive read heads. And his team made substantial contributions to the convergence between magnetism and microelectronics, as well as to the success of MRAM magnetic memory technology, which was adopted by manufacturers like Samsung, TSMC, and Intel. Currently he is investigating new MRAM memory concepts and magnetic logic components.
