Stuart Parkin recognized for great service to interdisciplinary materials research

13.12.2012
Experimental physicist Stuart Parkin of the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California and member of the Gutenberg Research College received the 2012 Von Hippel Award

Professor Dr. Stuart Parkin of the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, USA has received the 2012 Von Hippel Award from the Materials Research Society (MRS) for his outstanding contributions to interdisciplinary materials research.

The British-American experimental physicist and member of the Gutenberg Research College at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), was on hand to receive the award at the MRS Fall Meeting on November 28 in Boston. The annual award includes US-$ 10,000.00 in prize money. It is the American society's highest honor.

Stuart Parkin works in the field of spintronics, both in advancing scientific understanding and in technological applications, a field in which Parkin and his research team have contributed many significant discoveries and developments. According to the MRS, Parkin received the Von Hippel Award for his "seminal contributions to research and technology in spintronic materials."

Parkin is an IBM Fellow, the highest technical accolade from IBM, and managing director of the Magnetoelectronics group at the IBM Almaden Research Center. He is also a consulting professor at Stanford University. Stuart Parkin was awarded the Gutenberg Research Award from the Graduate School of Excellence "Materials Science in Mainz" (MAINZ) in 2008. He has collaborated closely since then with scientists and doctoral students in Mainz. In May 2011, he was named a fellow by the Gutenberg Research College in order to strengthen this collaboration.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
