Welcome to Magnus' research page
We explore nanophysical phenomena and their use in novel applications, such as new types of biosensing methods. Focus is on metal nanostructures, which interacts strongly with light through charge oscillations known as plasmons. Other research interests include developing new nanofabrication techniques, nanofluidics and surface chemistry for sensing applications.
I recently started as an assistant professor at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics at Linköping University, Sweden. Before that, I was a postdoc as a Wenner-Gren Fellow in Prof. Cees Dekker´s group at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. My PhD studies were performed in Prof. Fredrik Höök's group at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.
We are currently interested in enthusiastic and outstanding master students, PhD students and postdocs that would like to join our interdisciplanary research. Please contact me at email@example.com for more information.
