About the Author

Weisheng Zhao, received the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Paris-Sud, France, in 2007. From 2004 to 2008, he investigated Spintronic devices based logic circuits. Since 2009, he joined the CNRS as a tenured research scientist and his interest includes the hybrid integration of nanodevices with CMOS circuit and new non-volatile memory (40 nm technology node and below) like MRAM circuit and architecture design. Weisheng has authored or co-authored more than 120 scientific papers (e.g Advanced Material, Nature Communications, >40 IEEE Transactions etc.); he is also the principal inventor of 4 international patents. Since 2014, he becomes “Youth 1000 plan” distinguished professor in Beihang University, Beijing, China where he leads the Spintronics Interdisciplinary Center. He is a senior member of IEEE.

Guillaume Prenat is a researcher in microelectronics now in charge of the design activity for Spintec Lab. He graduated from Grenoble Institute of Technology in France, in 2002. He obtained a PhD degree in the field of analog and mixed signal testing in 2005. He joined the spintronics laboratory SPINTEC in November 2006 to take in charge the design activity. He holds 6 international patents and has authored or co-authored 45 scientific publications in this field.
