Competencies and research activities
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
