Spintec, founded in May 2002 with a team of twelve researchers, is behind many advances in spintronics. The lab helped drive the emergence of MRAM memories and spin-orbitronics and has filed more than 80 patents and spun off four startups, three of which are still in business today (Crocus Technologies, Hprobe, and Antaios). And the original staff of twelve has grown to around 100!
A twentieth anniversary celebration will be held on May 10 at the MINATEC auditorium.
In the morning, former Spintec directors, team members, and alumni will share their memories of Spintec’s exciting history.
In the afternoon, the Spintec alumni network, open to PhD students and postdocs, will be officially inaugurated. Attendees will also get a chance to tour Spintec. A live webcast and recording of the event will be available.
