The activities at Chemical Physics involve fundamental and applied research within surface and nano science. The projects are mainly connected to the development of sustainable energy systems.
Condensed Matter and Materials Theory
At Condensed Matter and Materials Theory we construct models for, and develop an understanding of, a large variety of materials and other condensed matter systems, sometimes leading to new materials or novel technological devices.
Our goal at Materials Physics is to understand why and how physical phenomena in materials arise and how to best exploit them in applications. We combine curiosity and challenge driven research which spans from investigating fundamental physical processes to actual working devices.
The research at Microstructure Physics focuses on materials and what affects their properties. We mainly deal with materials that are industrially applied.
Nano and Biophysics
At Nano and Biophysics we develop an understanding of, and explore the physics of, nanoscopic and biomolecular structures and their interactions with external stimuli, such as electrons, neutrons and photons.
Subatomic, High Energy and Plasma Physics
At Subatomic, High-Energy and Plasma Physics we cover a broad range of research topics and are inspired by some of the biggest scientific questions about the universe. We also explore applied physics, such as energy-related research, related to phenomena on subatomic scale.
