ICQM Faculty Member Dr. Wei Han Receives the 2016 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Magnetism

Dr. Wei Han, Researcher from the International Center for Quantum Materials (ICQM), has won the 2016 International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Young Scientist Prize in Magnetism (C9), for “his significant contributions to spin injection, spin transport and spin relaxation in graphene, and to the discovery of interface transparency and triangular antiferomagnetic IrMn3 for spin orbit torque in magnetic heterostructures”. This award is one of the most prestigious award received by a young researcher working on magnetism.


Dr. Wei Han has been working at ICQM since 2014 and his research interests focus on spintronics and emergent materials. Prior to this, he obtained his Ph.D. at the University of California, Riverside in 2012 and then worked at IBM Almaden Research Center (USA) for about two years as a postdoctoral research scientist with Prof. Stuart S. P. Parkin.


This IUPAP Young Scientist Award will be presented to him during the award ceremony of the next International Conference on Magnetism (ICM), which will be held in San Francisco, July 15-20, 2018. During that conference, Dr. Wei Han will give an invited lecture on his research in spintronics and magnetism.



Background of IUPAP

International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP), first established in 1922 in Brussels, is one of the highest international academic organizations of exchange and cooperation of physics, as well as one of the most authoritative international communities of researchers on physics. Young Scientist Award of IUPAP was established in 2006, in order to honor young scholars with outstanding contributions to various fields in physics and a greater potential for development globally.

 北京大学量子材料科学中心的韩伟研究员荣获国际纯粹与应用物理学联合会(International Union of Pure and Applied Physics,IUPAP)磁物理分会(C9)青年科学家奖。该奖是针对年轻物理学家的最具权威的国际奖项之一。磁物理委员会(C9)为表彰韩伟研究员在石墨烯的自旋注入,自旋输运,自旋弛豫,以及反铁磁异质结的自旋输运当中做出的一系列原创性的杰出贡献,特颁发其国际纯粹与应用物理学联合会青年科学家奖。


2014年,韩伟研究员以“青年千人”的身份被引进回国,在北京大学量子材料科学中心建立了“自旋和新兴材料实验室”,其研究方向主要集中在自旋电子学,低维量子材料,新兴材料和界面态等方向。在此之前,韩伟研究员于2012年在加州大学河滨分校取得博士学位,并在IBM Almaden研究中心师从自旋电子学著名专家Stuart Parkin教授开展博士研究工作。

国际纯粹与应用物理学联合会青年科学家奖的颁奖仪式将在2018年的圣弗朗西斯科的国际磁学会议(International Conference on Magnetism,ICM)举行。并且,韩伟研究员受组委会的邀请将在此会上做大会邀请报告,介绍自己在自旋电子学领域的研究工作。
