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 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.
