On June 10 and 11—exactly 50 years and six months from the day Louis Néel won the Nobel Prize in Physics—Grenoble’s scientific community will revisit his career. The event was originally slated to take place in December 2020, right in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. The rescheduled two-day event will likely be online-only so that anyone can attend. Bernard Dieny of Spintec and Alain Schuhl of CNRS will be among the dozen speakers who will pay tribute to Louis Néel, the scientist and the man. The program will address the current state of the art in magnetism, the field in which Néel’s work was seminal, and highlight the major role he played in establishing Grenoble as a major center for scientific research. Activities commemorating Néel’s Nobel Prize will continue into 2022, including during France’s national science week.
