The research activity started in 1988 with the setup of the Brillouin light scattering laboratory, equipped with a tandem-multipass Fabry-Perot interferometer. After a few years entirely devoted to the study of surface phonons in thin films, the research activity has been extended to the study of the dynamics of complex systems (liquids, glasses, polymers) and to the analysis of the magnetic properties of low-dymensional structures and magnonic crystals.
Presently, the main research lines deal with:
- Soft matter, Glasses and Biosamples;
- Nanomagnetism, Spintronics and Spin Waves;
- Elastic properties of Thin Films and Acoustic Resonators
