An IEEE Fellow among us !
Stéphane MANGIN, Professor of physics at the University of Lorraine and senior member of the IUF, was named Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) on January 1, 2021.
This distinction, the IEEE’s most prestigious recognizes his immense contribution in the field of ultrafast magnetization manipulation. Stéphane MANGIN’s works focuses on the possibility of manipulating magnetization at the nanometer scale using different means such as: ultrafast pulses of magnetic field, electric field, current and/or polarized light. The Spintronics and Nanomagnetism team that he leads at the IJL has demonstrated, for the first time, that a single ultrafast laser pulse can reverse the magnetization of a ferromagnetic nano-object. It was also shown that an electronic pulse of a few femto-seconds to a few pico-seconds could manipulate the magnetization.
