Call for nominations for the 2018 IUPAP Magnetism Award and Néel Medal
– Deadline: January 31, 2018 

The IUPAP Magnetism Award and Néel Medal are presented every three years, at the International Conference on Magnetism, to a scientist (or scientists) who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of magnetism.

A prize of $3,000 is awarded together with the medal.

The award winner will be selected by a committee composed of members of the IUPAP Commission on Magnetism (C9), together with past recipients of the Magnetism Award and Néel Medal. Nominations may be made by anyone interested in the field of magnetism.

Current members of the C9 commission are ineligible to be nominated.

The nomination papers should include:

  • Citation of no more than 50 words.
  • Curriculum vitae of the candidate, which must not exceed two pages in length.
  • List of 10 of the candidate’s most significant publications, including citation information, not to exceed one page.
  • Commentary on the publications, which makes the case for the award, not to exceed two pages
  • Letters of support, up to a maximum of six pages in total.

The documents must be collated into a single pdf file called Surname_MANM.pdf, where Surname is the candidate’s last name. The file should not exceed 10MB in size. Nominations not conforming to these rules cannot be accepted.

Nominations should be sent before January 31, 2018 to the C9 Secretary (Kai Liu) by e-mail to kailiu@ucdavis.edu, and copy to hilleb@physik.uni-kl.de.

Call for nominations for the 2018 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in the field of Magnetism
– Deadline: 31 January 2018

Established in 2016, the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in the field of Magnetism is awarded every year to a young scientist for theoretical or experimental work in fields of fundamental or applied magnetism. This annual award replaces the two awards for theoretical/computational work and for experimental work, which were awarded every three years at the International Conference on Magnetism (ICM).

The nominated candidate must not have completed more than eight years of research after the doctorate by the nomination date, with allowances for military service and parental leave. The award consists of a certificate, medal and a monetary award of €1,000. The awardee will be invited to present his or her results at the 2018 ICM.

The awardee will be selected by a committee composed of members of the IUPAP Commission on Magnetism (C9), together with past recipients of the Magnetism Award and Néel Medal. Nominations may be made by anyone interested in the field of magnetism.

The nomination papers must include:

–   Citation of no more than 50 words.

–   Curriculum vitae of the candidate, which must not exceed two pages in length.

–   List of six of the candidate’s most significant publications, including citation information, not to exceed one page.

–   Commentary on the publications, which makes the case for the award, not to exceed two pages.

–   Up to three letters of support, up to a maximum of two pages each.

 

The documents must be collected into a single pdf file called Surname_YSPM.pdf, where Surname is the candidate’s last name. The file should not exceed 10MB in size. Nominations not conforming to these rules cannot be accepted.

Nominations should be sent before January 31, 2018 to the C9 Secretary (Kai Liu) by e-mail to kailiu@ucdavis.edu, and copy to hilleb@physik.uni-kl.de.

IUPAP 2017 Young Scientist Prize in Magnetism

The 2017 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in the field of Magnetism will be awarded to:

Dr. Luqiao Liu, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, USA

For the pioneering demonstrations of the spin Hall effect excitation of ferromagnetic resonance, and of the surprisingly large spin Hall angles of particular heavy metals as determined by spin-torque ferromagnetic resonance, for seminal experiments and analysis of magnetic switching and auto-oscillation driven by that spin Hall effect, and for continuing research advancing the understanding and applicability of spin-orbit torques.”

The award will be presented to Dr. Luqiao Liu, at the next International Conference on Magnetism (ICM), which will take place in San Francisco, July 15-20, 2018.

Dr. Luqiao Liu has been a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since September 2015. He received his Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics from Cornell University in 2012.  He spent three years as a Research Staff Member at the IBM Watson Research Center before joining the MIT faculty. Dr. Liu’s current research focus is on advancing new materials and novel device structures for spintronics, including spin-based memory, logic and communication applications. Dr. Liu is the recipient of the 2017 William L. McMillan Award in Condensed Matter Physics—————————————————————

IUPAP 2016 Young Scientist Prize in Magnetism

The 2016 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in the field of Magnetism will be awarded to:

Dr. Wei Han, Peking University, China

“For significant contributions to spin injection, spin transport and spin relaxation in graphene, and to the discovery of interface transparency and triangular antiferomagnetic IrMn3 for spin orbit torque in magnetic heterostructures.”

The award will be presented to Dr. Han at the next International Conference on Magnetism (ICM), which will take place in San Francisco, July 15-20, 2018.

Dr. Wei Han has been a tenure-track assistant professor in the International Center for Quantum Materials (ICQM) at Peking University since 2014. He received his Ph.D. in physics at University of California, Riverside in 2012. Then, he spent two and half years at IBM Almaden Research Center as a postdoctoral associate. Dr. Han’s main research focus has recently been on graphene spintronics, spin orbit torque in magnetic heterostructures, and two-dimensional quantum interfaces/materials. Dr. Han is the recipient of the 2009 AVS Leo Falicov student award and the 2012 APS GMAG student dissertation award.
