Stuart Parkin recognized for great service to interdisciplinary materials research

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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
