Short presentation

Vassilios Kapaklis has an extensive experience in the magnetism of amorphous materials, low-dimensional structures and mesoscopic systems. He leads a group with a strong focus on the magneto-optical properties of magneto-plasmonic systems and ordering and dynamics of mesoscopic spin systems. The research is funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the European Union ( and the Swedish Research Council.
