Department of Physics of Nanostructures

The Department conducts theoretical, numerical and experimental research on the dynamics of magnetization and elastic deformation. The particular attention is paid to the spin waves in magnonic nanostructures and magnetic nanotextures, as well as surface acoustic waves on periodically decorated surfaces. The numerical works on photonic and plasmonic systems are also carried out by the group. The team is experienced in various numerical techniques for the simulations of wave dynamics in continuous media and in the measurements of the dispersion relations of phonons and magnons, using the spectrometry of Brillouin light scattering.
