  • Tsitsas, Nikolaos L.; Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos A. (Journal of the Optical Society of America B, 2017-03-15)
    Plane wave scattering by a planar metasurface composed of two periodically alternating rectangular dielectric rods is considered. A rigorous integral equation methodology is employed for the analysis and the accurate ...
  • Savoia, Silvio; Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos A.; Monticone, Francesco; Castaldi, Giuseppe; Galdi, Vincenzo; Al`u, Andrea (PHYSICAL REVIEW B. American Physical Society, 2017)
    We show that a cylindrical lensing system composed of two metasurfaces with suitably tailored non-Hermitian (i.e., with distributed gain and loss) and nonlocal (i.e., spatially dispersive) properties can perform ...
  • Folgheraiter, Michele; Gini, Giuseppina (IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Biomimetics, 2014)
    This work aims at developing a motor path generator for applications in mobile robotics based on a chaotic neural network. The computational paradigm inspired by the neural structure of microcircuits located in the ...
  • Folgheraiter, Michele (IEEE 8th International Conference on Application of Information and Communication Technologies, 2014)
    This paper introduces a methodology and a software framework intended to optimize and speed up the design process of a haptic interface or a rehabilitation system. Starting from an initial mechanical design the procedure ...
  • Folgheraiter, Michele; Keldibek, Amina; Aubakir, Bauyrzhan; Salakchinov, Shyngys; Gini, Giuseppina; Mauro Franchi, Alessio (Human Performance and Robotics, Satellite Workshop of IEEE Humanoid 2016, 2016)
    Here we propose a neuromorphic control system for a medium size humanoid robot under development in the Robotics and Mechatronics Department at Nazarbayev University and in cooperation with Politecnico di Milano.
  • Scarfogliero, Umberto; Folgheraiter, Michele; Gini, Giuseppina (4th IEEE/RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots, 2004)
    This paper focuses on the study and design of an anthropomorphical light biped robot. The robot presents a total of twelve degree of freedom that will permit it to act a walk in a three dimensional space, right now ...
  • Bubin, Sergiy; Adamowicz, Ludwik (PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 2017-01)
    A theoretical ab initio approach for calculating bound states of small atoms is developed and implemented. The approach is based on finite-nuclear-mass [non-Born-Oppenheimer (non-BO)] nonrelativistic variational calculations ...
  • Folgheraiter, Michele; Gini, Giuseppina; Vercesi, Dario (Journal of Intelligent and Robotic Systems, 2008-08)
    In this paper we present an innovative haptic device that combines the electro-tactile stimulation with the force and visual feedbacks in order to improve the perception of a virtual world. We discuss about the ...

  • Valagiannopoulos, Constantinos A.; Simovski, Constantin R.; Tretyakov, Sergei A. (EPJ Applied Metamaterials, 2017)
    The speed with which electromagnetic energy can be wirelessly transferred from a source to the user is a crucial indicator for the performance of a large number of electronic and photonic devices. We expect that ...

    Giant in-plane anisotropy can be exhibited by a finitely thick periodic multilayer comprising bilayers of an isotropic noncentrosymmetric material and a non-dissipative isotropic medium of negative permittivity, when a ...
  • Valagiannopoulos, C. A.; Mandilara, A.; Moiseev, S. A.; Akulin, V. M. (arXiv, 2017-01-12)
    We show how by a tailored breaking of the translational symmetry in waveguides and optical bers one can control chromatic dispersions of the individual modes at any order and thereby overcome the problem of coherent ...

    The hierarchical ( backslashfancyscriptH -) matrix format allows storing a variety of dense matrices from certain applications in a special data-sparse way with linear-polylogarithmic complexity. Many operations from linear ...
  • Bonet, José; Wegner, Sven Ake (Functiones et Approximatio, Commentarii Mathematici, 2011)
    We establish a criterion to decide when a countable projective limit of countable inductive limits of normed spaces is bornological. We compare the conditions occurring within our criterion with well-known abstract conditions ...
