"Peter Grünberg was one of the first physicists to understand the potential of nascent nanotechnologies for fundamental research. He discovered giant magnetoresistance, or GMR: a large change in electrical resistance induced by a small magnetic field in stacks of ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers." says Albert Fert* in Peter Grünberg's Obituary in Nature.
The next JEMS2018 conference will take place from the 3rd to 7th September 2018 in Mainz, Germany (https://jems2018.org/). It will host a symposium on “Magnetism and spintronics in molecular materials and carbon based systems”.
Jorge Wagensberg died on Saturday 3 March 2018 in Barcelona at the age of 69. Not only the scientific community, but the whole city of Barcelona mourns the loss of this great scientist, Physics professor, humanist, poet, author of fundamental books, creator of the new CosmoCaixa in Barcelona, director of Hermitage Barcelona until his death, great friend of ICMAB's people, and much more.
Similarly to the NFFA project in which we participate, the calls are for researchers who would like to use research infrastructures that are not available in their own centre, and are aimed to enhance the mobility and the collaboration within researchers and industries.
