AlbaNova

Department of Applied Physics

The Department of Applied Physics is one of the largest departments in the School of Engineering Sciences. We're situated in AlbaNova University Center, KTH Kista and Science for Life Laboratory.

The research at Department of Applied Physics is primarily experimental and often multi-disciplinary. Topics range from biological and medical physics over optical physics to applied quantum physics. Prominent areas include the science and technology of bioimaging, biomolecular spectroscopy, solid-state lasers, non-linear optics, ultrasonics, x-rays, nanostructures, nanophotonics and nanoelectronics.

APHYS-researcher speaks about teleportation on Swedish national radio

In the radio-program series “Den gömda koden,” Prof. Gunnar Björk spoke about entanglement, teleportation, and quantum key distribution with the narrator Roger Dackegård. The program was broadcast on September 30. The audio file is available here.

In the program's sequel, broadcast on Oct. 7, Peter Shor and Gunnar Björk discuss quantum computers and how they potentially can compromise the security of cryptography on internet. The audio file is available here

Radiointervju med professor Dutta

Fotokatalys går ut på att låta solljus bryta ner mikroplastpartiklar till ännu mindre beståndsdelar, till kol- och vätemolekyler som genom mineralisering omvandlas till koldioxid och vatten.

I dag finns det få metoder att rena vatten från mikroplaster, alltså de plastpartiklar som är mindre än fem millimeter i diameter. Det man gör vid reningsverk är att låta en del av mikroplasterna sjunka till botten tillsammans med andra partiklar och sedimenteras. Även i naturen kan vissa plaster brytas ner med hjälp av solljus, men det tar mycket lång tid.

Det forskarna försöker göra är att skynda på nedbrytningsprocessen genom att konstruera ett filter med nanobeläggning av zinkoxid, som höjer ljusets verkningsgrad. Det färdiga filtret ska sedan kunna placeras till exempel vid reningsverkens utlopp.

Forskar Grand Prix 2016

Doktoranden David Unnersjö-Jess gick till final, men nådde inte riktigt ända fram i riksfinalen. Men ett stort grattis till David, som även hördes i P4 Radio Stockholm. Vad är egentligen Tillämpad Fysik...? Och hur gör man en njure genomskinlig?
