Competencies and research activities

People:
Prof. Mario Carpentieri
Prof. Silvano Vergura

The scientific activity concerns the following 2 main topics of the Electrical Engineering:
•    Micromagnetism and Spintronics
•    Modelling, diagnostics and reliability of renewable energy sources

The first research topic studies:
•    Magnetic materials modeling.
•    Design of Spin-Transfer Torque (STT) MRAM and nano-oscillators.
•    Design of nanodevices spin-orbit torque based.
•    Linear and nonlinear dynamics of magnetic excitations in magnetic films, multilayers, and finite-size samples: spin waves, solitons, skyrmions.
•    Applications of linear and nonlinear spin waves in microwave signal processing.
•    Design of hybrid CMOS-STT-MRAM circuits.
•    CUDA Applications.
 
The second research topic studies:
•    Modelling of grid-connected and stand-alone renewable energy sources
•    Smart-grids and micro-grids
•    Penetration of RES in power systems
•    Statistics for monitoring the performance of RES
•    Nondestructive techniques for diagnostics of RES
•    ICT for energy
