Prof Dr Aziz DINIA was born in Rabat, Morocco, in 1961. He received BS (1981) and MS (1983) degrees in fundamental Physics from the Faculté de Sciences de Rabat in Morocco. He received his PhD degree in magnetism and superconductivity in 1987 at the University of Grenoble, where he focused on the coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity in Ternary Chevrel Phases. Thereafter, he got a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Rennes in France, where he worked on high Tc superconductors. He joined The University Louis Pasteur in 1989 as an assistant Professor. He developed his research activity at The IPCMS-CNRS on the growth and structural, magnetism and magnetoresistance of thin films and multilayers. Through European Project in collaboration with SIEMENS at Erlangen in Germany he developed a giant magnetoresistance angular sensor. He was President of the French Physical Society of the Alsace section between 1993 and 1998. From 1999 he is Professor at The ECPM; University of Strasbourg (UDS) and continues to develop his research at the IPCMS on the magnetism and transport of nano-dots and magnetic tunnel junctions that have potential applications in spintronic like Magnetic Random Access memory. Dinia’s research interests include emergent materials for spintronic like ferromagnetic oxides and magnetic semiconductors, and more recently on the fictionalization of transparent conducting oxides for photovoltaic. He is a Head of the material department of the ECPM-UDS and of Master of Material at the UDS 2003-Present. He has authored or co-authored more than 160 papers in international scientific Journals. He was supervisor of more than 20 PhD students and more than 100 MS students.
