Science Café with prof. Tomáš Jungwirth, Ph.D.

Tomáš Jungwirth is recognized scientist in the field of Spintronics. His expertise is condensed matter physics, electronic properties of nanostructures, quantum Hall effects, and antiferromagnetic spintronic devices. Recently he was involved in discoveries in the area of antiferromagnetic materials that change the way of data storing. Prof. Jungwirth leads the Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics at the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences.


Born in Prague, Czech Republic, Tomas Jungwirth received his Ph.D. degree in condensed matter physics from the Charles University in Prague in 1997. The Ph.D. thesis work on quantum Hall effect phenomena in semiconductors was performed partly in the Institute of Physics ASCR in Prague and partly at the Indiana University, USA. Subsequently he worked as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow at the Indiana University and a Research Fellow and Adjunct Professor at the University of Texas, USA. In 2004 Tomas Jungwirth was appointed a Professor-Chair at the University of Nottingham, UK and in 2007  a Head of the Department of Spintronics and Nanoelectronics of the Institute of Physics ASCR in Prague.

The fields of expertise of Tomas Jungwirth are condensed matter physics, materials science, electronic properties of nanostructures, quantum Hall effects, magnetic, magneto-transport and magneto-optical properties of ferromagnetic semiconductors, quantum-relativistic spin-orbit coupling phenomena including anisotropic magnetoresistace, anomalous and spin Hall effects, and non-magnetic, ferromagnetic, and antiferromagnetic spintronic devices.

Tomas Jungwirth has co-authored about 200 publications including 50 papers in Reviews of Modern Physics, Physical Review Letters, Nature Publishing Group, or Science. In 2011 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant in the field of spintronics. He was a member of the ERC Advanced Grant Evaluation Panel from 2009 to 2014. Besides the ERC Scientific Council, he is a member of the Research and Development Council of the Government of the Czech Republic, member of the Learned Society of the Czech Republic, and member of the Academy of Europe.
