Since 2010, the Swedish government has
given strategic research funding to Nano research at Chalmers. The Excellence
Initiative Nano distributes this funding, with the goal to further
strengthen the established excellence as well as to inspire new brilliant
Traditionally, Nano at Chalmers has a strong component of basic
curiosity driven research, within fields as different as DNA origami, graphene
and other 2D materials, quantum optics explored in superconducting circuits and
plasmonics as well as biological physics including artificial cell membranes,
just to mention a few different topics.
Under the heading Profiles, you find a searchable list of our 50+ Nano group leaders and
their research interests, which form the core of Nano at Chalmers. You can meet
almost all of them at our annual Community Building Activity,
typically gathering more than 120 researchers. Here research highlights from
Chalmers and worldwide are presented and new cross-disciplinary projects are initiated.
Although the core of Nano research at Chalmers is curiosity driven, EI Nano
supports three centers with considerable involvement from
industry: The Graphene Center at Chalmers including the Vinnova Competence
Center 2D-TECH, The SSF research center FoRmulaEx and the Wallenberg Center for
