Ezio Iacocca

Forskare at Chalmers, Physics, Theoretical Physics

Ezio's research focuses on the dynamics of nanoscale magnetic materials. As a visiting scholar , he studies the interpretation of magnetization dynamics as a dispersive hydrodynamic fluid. Such an interpretation is relevant to describe novel magnetic textures with the goal of obtaining a deeper fundamental understanding of magnetism as well as proposing novel approaches for information storage, processing, and transmission at the nanoscale.
