Jagadeesh S. Moodera
Dr. Jagadeesh S. Moodera is a scientist and leader of the Thin Film Magnetism, Tunneling and Nano Spintronics group at the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is also a visiting professor at the Applied Physics Department, Eindhoven Technical University (the Netherlands). He obtained his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. His current research interests include fundamental phenomena in magnetism, particularly spin-polarized tunneling, superconductivity, and nanospintronics.
Thermal magnetic fluctuations, usually thought of as a barrier to magnetic information storage and processing, can be harnessed to make green, low-energy magnetic applications a possibility.
