Rosa Letizia's main research interests are focused on the area of Computational Modelling of artificial materials such as Photonic Band Gap (PBG) structures, linear and nonlinear, and Metamaterials for potential application into scaled-down particle accelerators and nano-photonics in general. She is also currently interested in the use of these composite materials for the exploitation of highly dispersive structures such as plasmonic waveguides in new frequency ranges of application. As a contribution to this field, Rosa Letizia has recently proposed a generalized MRTD scheme including a dispersion model of the complex refractive index of metals through various mathematical models such as Drude, Drude- Lorentz, and Drude-Critical Points model.
