Iacocca Group


Welcome to the Iacocca Group

Our focus

We study magnetization dynamics at the nanoscale. We theoretically, analytically, and numerically investigate dynamics from the ultrafast regime to the dispersion of spin waves in metamaterials.

Our goal

To gain understanding of non-equilibrium and nonlinear magnetization dynamics and propose magnetic devices for information technologies.

Nanoscale solitons found

We have uncovered the nucleation of solitons at picosecond timescales in large perpendicular anisotropy nanoparticles in a recent publication in Science Advances 8, eabn0523 (2022). …
