Hi Tim,

You are correct; most people do not know their names, but I published this article so that many more engineers would know who these guys were. I am glad you found this educational.

Thanks for writing this article!  I had no knowledge of Peter Gruenberg, nor of his and Albert Fert's work.  GMR is a REALLY BIG DEAL!  And whether or not these guys' names are household words, everyone owes them a lot.  Hats off to them!
