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.

  • KTH celebrates the Nobel week with webcast in China
    13 Dec 2017


    KTH, in collaboration with Scientific American, celebrated the Nobel week with two webcast discussions about the Nobel prize in chemistry and physics, respectively. Prof. Gunnar Björk and the APHYS Ph.D. student Katarina Stensson had an almost hour-long discussion about The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), the instrument that finally detected gravitational waves. This observation rendered some of the instrument’s inceptors and chief scientists the Nobel prize in physics for 2017.

  • ADOPT Winter School 2018
    12 Dec 2017


    This year, the advisory committee of the school has chosen the topic of Quantum Photonic Technologies. The School will give to young students and researchers an excellent opportunity to attend a series of lectures on the foundations of the field as will as state of the art of current technologies. The lectures will be held by internationally recognized experts and will cover both fundamental aspects and applications. The students will have the opportunity to interact efficiently, exchange their knowledge, and importantly, discuss and learn directly from international experts in the field.
