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 am currently 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.
Interested in joining our research?
We are always interested in enthusiastic master students to join our interdisciplinary research, as well as postdocs with own funding. Please contact Magnus at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
