The group name has been changed to "Magnetic Functional Device Group" due to the reorganization at NIMS.
Dr. Hirofumi Suto, a senior researcher of Magnetic Materials Group, won the "MSJ (The Magnetics Society of Japan) Significant Contribution Award".
A NIMS research team devised a new thermoelectric generation mechanism with a hybrid structure composed of thermoelectric and magnetic materials. The team then actually fabricated this structure and observed the record-high thermopower appearing in the direction perpendicular to a temperature gradient.

    NIMS and AIST have jointly succeeded in fabricating a giant magnetoresistive (GMR) device comprising single-crystal Heusler alloys on an practical silicon substrate. The team demonstrated for the first time that a single-crystal magnetoresistive device can be bonded onto the surface of a polycrystalline electrode using a wafer bonding technique.
