EDP Sciences authors, A. Fert and P. Grünberg, 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics (Oct. 2007)
- Published on 17 October 2007
This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics has been awarded jointly to Albert Fert (Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, France) and Peter Grünberg (Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany) for their discovery of Giant Magnetoresistance. Applications of this phenomenon have revolutionized techniques for retrieving data from hard disks. The discovery also plays a major role in various magnetic sensors as well as for the development of a new generation of electronics. The use of Giant Magnetoresistance can be regarded as one of the first major applications of nanotechnology. (extracted from Nobel web site)
