We have established an International Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials (AFM), which contributes at the highest level to the creation of knowledge. Our work in highly competitive Centers of Excellence has been evaluated as excellent to outstanding by the VR, SSF, and VINNOVA.
Materials science is a top research priority at Linköping University, with grants totaling >190 MSEK/yr, and strongly supported by industry and institutes. It is extremely productive as judged by both academic and societal metrics.
We envision that science focused on the atomic/molecular-scale design of new materials will provide solutions to broadly-based societal issues, including jobs, health, energy, environment, and sustainability.
AFM encompasses 240 researchers organized into interactive collaborating teams. The acting director is Prof. Igor Abrikosov.
