The research at BioNano Systems Laboratory focuses on nanoscale materials, device structures and components based on silicon materials, circuits and microsystems including molecular and biological elements.
The Graphene Centre at Chalmers gathers all of our research, education and innovation related to graphene under one common umbrella. Synergies between our multiple graphene projects can be identified, utilised and developed, at same time we create an environment that attracts researchers, students and cooperation partners. The centre is the obvious entry point to the Swedish network of graphene research and development, as well as to the EU?s research initiative on graphene - the Graphene Flagship.
The Linneqs environment is lead by a coordinator, Per Delsing, together with four project coordinators for the four different research areas, Vitaly Shumeiko (Qubits), Dag Winkler (Quantum Transport), Sergey Kubatkin (Graphene) and Eva Olsson (Enabling Technologies).
The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored to students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both regarding the fundamentals of nanoscience and how to design and build components on the nanoscale.
The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
Large efforts, experimental as well as theoretical, are directed at materials, devices and subsystems for future micro/nanoelectronics in the fields of microwave electronics, quantum devices, photonics, micro- and nanosystems, superconducting devices and circuits and molecular electronics just to mention a few.
The Nanofabrication Laboratory is a world-class university cleanroom for research into and fabrication of micro and nano technology. The laboratory is run by the department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers, but is an open user facility for external as well as internal academic and industrial interests.
The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology provides a solid background in solid state physics, semiconductor devices, materials science and design, microelectronics, materials chemistry and an introduction to biotechnology. It offers a broad range of fundamental courses, e.g., quantum mechanics and solid state physics, but the programme is also experimentally oriented and provides several laboratory exercises as well as practical experience from advanced research tools for materials and device characterization.
Materials science has traditionally been an important research area at KTH with strong ties to the Swedish industry. In addition to the internationally highly competitive research in traditional materials, KTH has strong research in nanoscience and nanotechnology, which is used to study and tailor material structures.
