J. Carlos ROJAS-SANCHEZ


Juan Carlos Rojas-Sanchez is currently a CNRS permanent researcher at Institute Jean Lamour (IJL), Nancy, France. He received his Bachelor in Physics in 1999 from National University of Engineering (UNI), Lima, Peru, his Master in Physics in 2004 from Balseiro Institute, Bariloche, Argentina, and his Ph.D. in Physics in 2011 from Balseiro Institute (National University of Cuyo), Bariloche Atomic Center, Bariloche, Argentina.

From 2011-2015, he was a postdoctoral fellow in Laboratoire de Nanostructures et Magnetisme INAC/CEA, SPINTEC, Institut Néel, and Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales, France. He joined the CNRS in October 2015 as a researcher in the Spintronics and Nanomagnetism group at Institute Jean Lamour (IJL).
In 2018, he also became the Head of IJL’s micro and nanotechnologies competence center MiNaLor.

His main research interests span from spintronics to spin-caloritronics and spin-orbitronics. He studies spin current, spin Hall effect, Edelstein effect, and spin-orbit torque in 3D and 2D systems with the aim to obtain more efficient, faster, and environmentally cleaner devices for memory, energy harvesting, and logic applications. He has over 44 publications in international peer-reviewed journals such as Nature Materials, Advanced Materials, Nature Communications, Nano Letters, and Physical Review Letters, 10 as the first author and 9 as the second author, with a total citation of more than 2100. He has also served as the session chair of several significant international conferences and co-chair or chair of International Workshops in Spintronics.
