Our research focuses on the development of novel semiconductor materials for high-frequency and power electronics.
Materials scientists Vaya Darakchieva and Johanna Rosén have each been awarded over SEK 30 million from the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research. They aim to develop new materials for more efficient energy systems.
Low-frequency light reveals internal structures and properties in all conceivable materials. A research team at LiU has built a one-of-a-kind spectrometer that analyses samples with electromagnetic waves in the terahertz range.
Vanya Darakchieva and Per Persson, both at IFM, Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, each receive 15 million from SSF for the expansion of research infrastructure at LiU.
Our division develops and investigates materials for novel electronics with the main focus on silicon carbide, III-nitrides and graphene.
Undergraduate teaching and research in the areas of biology, chemistry, materials and applied physics and theory and modelling are conducted at this department.
