Dr. Florin Ciubotaru is a Principal Member of the Technical Staff at imec. He received a M.Sc. degree in Physics from Alexandru Ioan Cuza University, Iasi, Romania (2003), after which he started as an assistant professor in the field of magnetism within the Physics department. In 2007, he joined the Physics Department at TU Kaiserslautern as an associate researcher working on magnetization dynamics in spintronic devices. He obtained a PhD degree in Physics in 2012 from the same university. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at KU Leuven (2014) and in 2016 started as a senior scientist at imec. He was the beneficiary of an EU Marie Curie Fellowship and is involved in the management of the European research and COST Action grants. His research includes the understanding of different physical mechanism related to the magnetization dynamics and switching under current (spin-transfer-torque, spin-orbit-torque) or voltage (magnetoelectricity) induced effects down to nanometer range and at (sub-)nanosecond timescales. He works on identifying technological relevant solutions based on spintronic devices. He is the author of more than 30 published papers, holds two granted international patents and two patent applications.
