Nobel Laureate Albert Fert

Albert Fert, who shared the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics, delivers his talk "Spintronics: Electrons, Spins Computers and Telephones. 

Spintronics exploits the influence of the electron spin orientation on electronic transport. It is mainly known for the “giant magnetoresistance” (GMR) and the large increase of the hard disc capacity obtained with read heads based on the GMR, but it has also revealed many other interesting effects.

Charitable Campaign Nears Conclusion

Monday, October 27, 2014

The annual State Charitable Contributions Campaign has already raised more than $200,000, and is more than halfway toward its participation goal.

So far, 666 employees have given $205,113 toward the goal of 1,500 people giving $330,000. The deadline to donate is Friday, Nov. 14.

Michele Green, an administrative professional for the Georgia Tech Research Corporation, knows the power of the campaign firsthand. After a divorce left her in need of furniture and assistance, she found the Atlanta Step-Up Society, a campaign beneficiary that runs a thrift shop and provides services to veterans, the homeless, and those who are rebuilding their lives. Now that she’s able, Green gives back to the organization. 

“I give from my heart,” said Green, who has also served as a Charitable Campaign ambassador for 10 years. “You just never know when you might need assistance.”

Those who donate by Nov. 14 will be entered into a drawing for golf for four at the Currahee Club in Toccoa, Georgia. Faculty and staff can give through payroll deduction, check donations, credit/debit card payment or WebCheck. Giving online through TechWorks is confidential, secure, and simple to use.
