PROGRAM

NIMS Award Ceremony / NIMS Award Winning Lecture

NIMS has given NIMS Award to a distinguished person or a group who had made significant progress in Materials Science.
In 2018, NIMS will present the honor for Dr. Masato Sagawa and Prof. Terunobu Miyazaki who have made outstanding research achievements in the area of “magnetic and spintronic materials” and a winning lecture will take place.

2018 Award Winners

Day 1: NIMS Award 2018 Dr. Masato Sagawa
(Adviser, Daido Steel Co. Ltd.)

Dr. Sagawa invented neodymium (Nd) magnets the world’s strongest magnets and developed a method of mass-producing. He will present overview lectures on how Nd magnets was made and how it was developed for practical use, such as Hybrid car and HDD, and recent advances.

<NIMS Award Winning Lecture>
“Developments of R-Fe-X Permanent Magnets (X=B,C,N)”
Day 1: NIMS Award 2018 Prof. Terunobu Miyazaki
(Emeritus Professor, Tohoku University)

Prof. Terunobu Miyazaki invented the room temperature tunneling magneto-resistance device that led to real spintronic applications such as read sensors in HDDs. He will talk about the development of memory cells in MRAMs.

<NIMS Award Winning Lecture>
“Development of Spintronics -Focusing on my personal experience-”

Symposium Lectures

Day 1: Lectures Eight distinguished scientists will give lectures on recent advances in permanent magnets, magnetic data storage, and MRAM. This academic symposium will provide an overview of the current status and future prospects of the state-of-the-art material research in magnetic and spintronics applications.

Poster Session 100

Day 1:Poster Session
Focusing on young scientists of magnetic and spintronics materials research, poster session will be held on the day. Presenters are not only from inside NIMS but from outside around the world. Excellent posters will be selected for poster awards.

Magnetic Materials Innovations that changed the world

- Materials that enabled electric vehicles, large capacity data storage and energy saving memory

Electric vehicles (EV) are rapidly replacing existing cars, hard disk drives (HDD) can store big data in the IoT society, and magnetoresistive random access memories (MRAM) are being used as nonvolatile memory for computing. These applications were made possible by the innovation of magnetic materials.

NIMS will present the 2018 NIMS AWARD to two material scientists who have made epoch-making inventions in magnetic and spintronic materials. Dr. Masato Sagawa invented the world’s strongest neodymium magnet that is now used for motors for EVs and HDDs, and Prof. Terunobu Miyazaki invented the room temperature tunneling magneto-resistance device that led to real spintronic applications such as read sensors in HDDs and memory cells in MRAMs.

At the 2018 NIMS AWARD lecture, the award recipients will present overview lectures on how each material invention was made and how it was developed for practical use. Following the awards lectures, other distinguished scientists in relevant areas will give lectures on recent advances in permanent magnets, magnetic data storage, and magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM). This academic symposium will provide an overview of the current status and future prospects of the state-of-the-art material research in magnetic and spintronics applications.

Everyone is welcome to participate in the 2018 NIMS AWARD Lectures and Symposium. All the lectures will be presented in both Japanese and English through simultaneous interpretation and is intended for participants with various backgrounds in science and engineering.
