University Lecture by Professor Albert Fert (Nobel Prize in Physics 2007): From fundamental research to innovation: a few examples in spintronics and computing/communication technologies

When:We 01-05-2013 19:30 - 21:00
Where:Aula Academiegebouw

Fundamental research not only increases our knowledge, it is essential for generating new practical applications. No-one is surprised anymore by the fact that we can send gigabytes of information to our hard disks in a short period of time. This is partly due to a fundamental discovery made by the French physicist Albert Fert in 1988, at the same time as his German colleague Peter Grünberg. The two were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2007 for their discovery. By invitation of the Board of the University and the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, on Wednesday 1 May Fert will give a public lecture at the University of Groningen.
