Dr B.DIENY has been conducting research in magnetism and spin electronics for 35 years. He played a key role in the pioneer work on giant magnetoresistance spin-valves which were introduced in hard disk drives in 1998. In 2001, he launched SPINTEC laboratory (Spintronics and Technology of components) in Grenoble. He cofounded two startup companies: Crocus Technology on MRAM and magnetic sensors in 2006 and EVADERIS on circuits design in 2014. He received two Advanced Research grants from the European Research Council in 2009 and 2014 related to hybrid CMOS/Magnetic Integrated Electronics. He became IEEE Fellow in 2010, received the De Magny Prize from French Academy of Sciences in 2015 and the IEEE Magnetics Society Achievement Award in 2019. His field of expertise covers a broad spectrum from basic research in nanomagnetism and spin-electronics to functional spintronic devices and biomedical applications of nanomagnetism.
