About the Author
From 1962 to 1998 M. I. Dyakonov was a researcher at the Ioffe Institute in St. Petersburg. In 1998 he became professor at Université Montpellier II, France. His name is accociated with the Dyakonov-Perel mechanism of spin relaxation in semiconductors, the Dyakonov-Shur plasma instability in two-dimensional electron fluid, and the Dyakonov waves at interfaces of transparent anisotropic materials. In 1971, together with V.I. Perel he has predicted new spin-related transport phenomena, one of which, now called the Spin Hall Effect, has become a subject of extensive experimental and theoretical studies. He was awarded the State Prize of USSR in 1973 and the Ioffe prize of the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1993.
