Title: Transition from spin accumulation into interface states to spin injection in the Ge conduction band
Dr. Matthieu JAMET, 39 years old, is graduated from Ecole Normale Supérieure Lyon (1993-1997) and Agrégé de Physique (teaching diploma). He received his Master degree in 1997 in Material Science, his PhD degree in 2001 with highest honour from the University of Lyon 1 on "Structure and magnetism of cobalt, iron and mixed cobalt-silver nanoclusters embedded in a superconducting niobium matrix. Magnetic properties of a single nanocluster probed by micro-SQUID" and his HdR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches) in 2010 from the University of Grenoble on the "Study of Ge:Mn ferromagnetic semiconductor". In 2001-2002, he was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Germany) to work on the self-organization of nanomagnets. Since the end of 2002 he is a permanent researcher at the CEA-Grenoble. His research interests are: semiconductor spintronics (hybrid ferromagnet/semiconductor systems, group IV ferromagnetic semiconductors, spin injection in Si and Ge), MgO-based magnetic tunnel junctions and perpendicular anisotropy materials. Since 2007, he is the head of the NM Lab (Nanostructures and Magnetism) of the CEA-Grenoble. This lab comprises 11 permanent staff members among which 8 researchers, 3 technicians and an average of 10 students (Post-docs, PhD and master students). The topics are currently: spintronics in semiconductors and metals, nanomagnetism in thin films and nanoparticles, magneto-electric effects, magnetic domain wall dynamics in nanotructures. He coordinated two projects in semiconductor spintronics: one French PNANO ANR project GeMO (2007-2010, 500 k€) dealing with the ferromagnetic semiconductor Ge:Mn and one RTRA project (Nanoscience Foundation of Grenoble) IMAGE (2008-2011, 250 k€) on spin injection in germanium. He supervised 2 post-docs, 3 Master internships and 8 PhD students. He is the author of ~40 publications, 4 patents, 1 book.
