Professor Nguyen Huu Duc, who was born in 1958 in Vietnam, earned a bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of Hanoi (1980). He joined the Cryogenic Laboratory as researcher immediately after his graduation from the group. His thesis research concerned the Metamagnetism of Itinerant Electrons in Rare Earth – Transition Metal Intermetallics. He obtained his Ph.D Degree in the same group in 1988 and he has been teaching courses in Physics and Thermodynamics of Phase Transitions, Physics of Magnetism, Nanostructured Magnetic Materials and Spintronics. In the period passed he extended his research on various aspects of magnetism, such as: 4f-3d exchange interactions; magnetovolume effects, magneto‑transport properties; surface magnetism in thin films, nanostructured magnetic materials, multiferroics, MERAM and biochips. He has received the French Habilitation (DHR) in Physics at the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble in 1997, became a Full Professor of the Vietnam National University (VNU), Hanoi in 2004 and Professor of Merit in 2008.

       Prof. Duc is author of 100 scientific papers in various international journals and of 5 monographs published in recent volumes of the Handbook of Magnetic Materials and the Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths (Elsevier Science Publisher). He has been in intensive collaboration with scientists from various institutions and universities of Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Moscow (Russia), Tokyo, Kyushu and Ritsumeikan (Japan), Paris-Sud, Rouen and Brest (France), Prague (Czech) and from the Laboratory Louis Néel, CNRS (Grenoble, France). He has given invited talks at the International Conference on Magnetism in 1991 at Edinburg (Scotland), Joint European Magnetic Symposia in 2001 at Grenoble (France), Rare-Earths in 2004 at Nara, International Conference on Magnetism in 2006 at Kyoto (Japan), International Symposium on Advanced Magnetic Materials and Applications (2007) at Jeju Island and Asian Magnetics Conference (2008) at Busan, Korea... He has also been nominated as an associate and/or visiting professor at French Universities, such as the University of Rouen in the period 1997-2001 and the Joseph Fourier University of Grenoble in 2003.

       In 2004, the Third Chen Ning Yang Award of the Association of Asia Pacific Physical Societies was given to Prof. N.H. Duc for his excellent contribution to the study of 3d-itinerant electron metamagnetism, 3d-4f exchange coupling and magnetostriction in rare earth – transition metal intermetallic compounds. Recently, he successes in preparing multiferroic laminates allowing them to be used to make microtesla magnetic-field sensors with a variety of applications in Vietnam.

        Prof. N.H. Duc is an Advisory Editorial Board member for the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials since January 2009.

        In 2005, Vietnam’s Minister of Education and Training appointed prof. Duc Rector of College of Technology, VNU Hanoi.

       In 2008, Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung appointed prof. Duc Vice-President of VNU Hanoi – a leader university of Vietnam’s higher education with over hundred years’ history. He also serves as the Director of the Nanotechnology Laboratory at the College of Technology. As vice-president, N.H. Duc contributed to develop the university oriented to research and to industry cooperation.

       His current research interests are focussed on nano-structured magnetic materials and devices, and in particular, the magnetostrictive exchange-spring multilayers, multiferroic, MERAM and biochips.
