Excellent electronics research is conducted at LiU within several important areas for society: energy supply, future health care and the internet of things. At Campus Norrköping, there is a fully equipped EMC lab for testing electronic equipment.

Examples from the leading edge of research:
Circuits and systems are becoming smaller, increasingly effective and consume less power, or are even self-sufficient by extracting, or harvesting, energy from the surroundings.

Circuits and super-sensitive receivers that can be connected to BAN, Body Area Networks, in combination with organic electronics.

Communication electronics with connections to the internet of things and components for efficient wireless transmission.

Information coding, where LiU hosts leading research in the field of security in optical systems and quantum encryption.

Design of processors and logic design.

Electronic physics is also studied in depth - LEDs, UV detectors, biosensors and so on are produced in nano-scales through nano-structure design in zinc oxide grown on graphene.

Research in these areas is described below under the headings Communication electronics, Circuit/system design, Nanoelectronics and Quantum Informatics.
Closely related areas of research such as Printed electronics, Organic electronics and Wireless systems are found under separate headings on the LiU website; links for these are further down the page.
