Prof. Tomasz Dietl

Tomasz Dietl is a Head and a Professor at the International Centre for Interfacing Magnetism and Superconductivity with Topological Matter – MagTop, funded by a grant from the Foundation for Polish Science (FNP), and carried out at the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, where he earned PhD in 1978. In 2008 Dietl obtained an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). From 2011-2014 he served as an ERC Scientific Council member and on the ERC Steering Committee. In 2023, he became a National Science Centre (NCN) Council Member.

His current research interests are focused on developing material systems and device concepts for nanospintronics of topological materials, ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic semiconductors, and hybrid metal/semiconductor nanostructures. He is the author or co-author of over 380 research publications and 30 popularizing articles, cited over 24 000 times, resulting in the h-factor over 58 (WoS). Dietl has presented over 200 invited talks at international meetings, including nine plenary lectures at major physics conferences.

In 1998 Dietl became a member of the Polish Academy of Sciences; in 2002, he was elected to the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, Commission on Low-Temperature Physics; later he was nominated Fellow of the Institute of Physics, UK, the American Physical Society, and the Japanese Society of Applied Physics (in 2004, 2015, and 2019, respectively), while in 2009 Dietl was elected to the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences as well as to the Warsaw Science Society and in 2011 to Academia Europaea. He is recipient of Maria Skłodowska-Curie Award in Poland (1997); Alexander von Humboldt Research Award in Germany (2003); Agilent Technologies Europhysics Prize (2005) for pioneering works that paved the way for the emergence of semiconductor spintronics; Foundation for Polish Science Prize (2006), and the Marian Smoluchowski Medal of the Polish Physical Society (2010).
