Agnes Barthelemy 

Agnès Barthélémy is Full-Professor at University Paris-Saclay and researcher at Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS-Thales. After a PhD thesis on Giant Magnetoresistance and perpendicular anisotropy in magnetic metallic multilayers, she reoriented her research in 1998 and developed at Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales a new direction of research on “multifunctional oxides”. This encompasses researches on magnetic tunnel junctions with record of tunnel magnetoresistance using half metallic manganite electrodes, ferroelectric tunnel junctions with demonstration of their potential as memory and for neuromorphic computing, high mobility two-dimensional electron gases at oxide interfaces for spin-charge current interconversion, multiferroic materials and heterostructures and their opportunity to obtain an electrical control of the magnetic state. She received the Louis Ancel prize of the French Physical Society in 2008, the Silver medal of CNRS in 2010, the Nikola Tesla prize of the Petrović Njegoš foundation in 2015, the Lazare Carnot prize of the French Academy of Sciences in 2017 and awarded jointly with Nicola Spaldin by the IUPAP Magnetism Award and Néel Medal in 2021.
