Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
School of Physics and CRANN
Michael Coey’s research career has been spent largely with the CNRS in
Grenoble and the Physics Department in Trinity College, Dublin, where he
is currently Professor Emeritus. His interests have been focused on
magnetism in many guises – oxides, metals, semiconductors, minerals,
thin-film devices and magnetic field effects on biological and
electrochemical systems. In Singapore, he is interested in oxide
interfaces and d0 magnetism. He is author of many papers and books, including Magnetism and Magnetic Materials
(Cambridge 2010). His group has trained 50 PhDs over the past 30 years.
He helped create CRANN, Ireland’s nanoscience research centre, the
Science Gallery at Trinity College and the company Magnetic Solutions.
Awards and Honours include the Gold Medal of the Royal Irish Academy,
visiting Einstein Professor of the Chinese Academy of Sciences,
Fellowship of the Royal Society and Foreign Associate of the US National
Academy of Sciences.
