Lucian has been conducting research on nanomagnetism and spintronics for almost 15 years. He holds a Physics degree from Babes Bolyai University in Cluj (Romania) and a PhD in Physics from Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg where he pioneered the work on magnetic nanostructures. He then joined Spintec where he worked on the thermally assisted MRAM concept, on probe storage and on logic devices based upon domain wall motion under polarized currents. He joined Crocus Technology mid-2006 as R&D manager, where he made key contributions to the development and industrialization of thermally assisted MRAM for which he was awarded the SEE-IEEE Brillouin prize in 2012. In 2013, Lucian returns to Spintec as deputy director. He holds more than 30 international patents on magnetic memories and has authored about 50 scientific publications and book chapters on nanomagnetism and spintronics.
