Professor, Director of NanoLund
My research focus on understanding the interplay between function, structure, and growth of low dimensional objects, from micrometers down to the atomic scale, from seconds to attosecond and moving towards realistic synthesis and device operation environments.
The aim is a better fundamental understanding of complex, dynamic condensed matter systems, as well as contributing to developing novel materials and devices for next generation computing, energy systems and products improving our lives. Common for much of the work is the observation that as materials get confined to the nanometer range in one or more dimensions, completely new atomic scale structures, quantitative changes in electrical, optical, mechanical and chemical properties occur, quantum phenomena dominate and growth modes very different from the bulk are observed.
To study these phenomena, novel experimental methods are developed, fundamentally important properties of nanoscale systems determined and new theories for the growth and properties of nano scale materials developed. A present focus is on using advanced light sources such as 4th generation synchrotrons and atto/femto second lasers in combinations with high resolution microscopy and nano-optoelectronic devices. The work is carried out in close collaborations with many other research groups in the areas of physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and biology.
I am a frequent user of the MAX IV synchrotron facility here in Lund.
