We explore nanooptical and organic photonic phenomena and their use in novel applications, such as new types of energy harvesting and biosensing concepts. We have a specific interest in metal nanostructures that interact strongly with light through plasmonic charge oscillations. Other research interests include nanofabrication, nanofluidics and surface chemistry for sensing applications.
Group leader Magnus P Jonsson was previously a Wenner-Gren Fellow postdoc in Prof. Cees Dekker´s group at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. His PhD studies were performed in Prof. Fredrik Höök's group at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Since 2015, he is an elected member of the Young Academy of Sweden.
We have no job openings right now, but welcome master students, and postdocs with funding, to contact us.
