Dafiné Ravelosona

Dafiné RAVELOSONA, aged 42, senior Scientist in CNRS, is an experimentalist physicist and he is currently the Deputy Director of C2N and Director of the Nanoelectronics Department.

After a Ph. D. in Solid States Physics (1995) and a post doc fellowship at CNM in Madrid (Spain), he became a permanent research member of CNRS in 1998 at the University of Orsay. From 2004 to 2005, he joined as a visiting scientist the research center of Hitachi Global Storage Technology, San José, USA. He is presently coordinator of a collaborative national funded project in charge of developing highly integrated spintronics devices based on magnetic domain walls driven by a spin polarized current. He has over 12 years of experience of magnetic thin-films growth, nanodevices development, magnetotransport phenomena and nanomagnetism. His work has mainly focused on transport phenomena in nanostructures with perpendicular anisotropy for applications to logic and solid state memories.
