IEEE Magnetics recognizes the dissemination activity of Josep Fontcuberta as Distinguished Lecturer 2016 at the Award Ceremony of INTERMAG 2017

 Prof. Josep Fontcuberta was nominated IEEE Magnetics Society Distinguished Lecturer during 2016. During all this time he has visited more than 56 cities across the 4 continents and has given 60 seminars on "The magnetism of oxides".

May 8, 2017

During the IEEE International Magnetics Conference (INTERMAG Europe 2017), which took place in Dublin from 24th-28th April, he was recognized for the high dissemination activity during this period. 


The objective of the IEEE Magnetics Distinguished Lecturer program is to disseminate progress and advances in the field of magnetism and to involve the international scientific community in its broadest sense. The program supports the different associated chapters of the society by making available lecturers who can inspire and encourage new researchers, particularly the younger ones, to start an activity and a professional career in magnetism.

Short bio: Josep Fontcuberta received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Barcelona in 1982. He was a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, Oxford University (U.K.), and later was appointed as an Assistant Professor with the Physics Faculty, University of Barcelona. In 1991, he moved to ICMAB, where he is currently a Full Research Professor.

He is mainly interested in functional oxides. These strongly correlated with electronic systems display fascinating ferroic orders (i.e., magnetic and ferroelectric) and remarkable magnetoelectric and optic properties, which have motivated his research and that of the Multifunctional Thin Films and Complex Structures (MULFOX) Group he leads. His group research activities are focused on materials and devices that may contribute to a more a sustainable world. 

He has co-authored over 400 scientific papers, is an Editor of Advanced Electronic Materials, Solid State Communications, and the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials.

And, remember, as Pep says: Oxides do not get oxidized!
