Following the provisional resolution of this year's Severo Ochoa Centers of Excellence call, there has been a hustle and bustle in the press and in the social networks regarding the criteria of excellence of the Severo Ochoa programme, and the fact that the ICIQ (Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia) is not within the selected members.
"Peter Grünberg was one of the first physicists to understand the potential of nascent nanotechnologies for fundamental research. He discovered giant magnetoresistance, or GMR: a large change in electrical resistance induced by a small magnetic field in stacks of ultrathin magnetic and non-magnetic layers." says Albert Fert* in Peter Grünberg's Obituary in Nature.
