Ezio Iacocca, Ph.D.
Areas of interest
Theoretical and numerical magnetism. I study three broad areas:
Ultrafast magnetism and picosecond dynamics of magnetic materials subject to an intense, femtosecond optical excitation (Recent publication).
Magnonics, focusing on the spin wave dispersion in two dimensional frustrated arrays, or artificial spin ices. (Review).
Spin hydrodynamics for long-distance spin transport and the study of nonlinear magnetization dynamics (Review).
