Jan Vogel is Research Director at the Institut Néel, Grenoble (France) which is part of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). He studied technical physics at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) and obtained his PhD in Physics in 1994 at the University of Nijmegen (The Netherlands), with most of his research on magnetism of thin films and surfaces performed at the French national synchrotron LURE (Orsay, Paris). After a Post-Doc at the Laboratoire Louis Néel (Grenoble, France) using x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) to determine element-selective magnetic properties of multilayers and alloys, he joined the CNRS in 1998. Since then, his research concerns the study of magnetization dynamics in thin magnetic films and nanostructures. Recently, his work has mainly focused on the imaging and physics of magnetic domain walls and skyrmions.
