Photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling and detecting light. Photonics is of increasing importance to our society, as illustrated by the 2009 and 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics. Optical fibre communication, which relies on optical fibres combined with several other photonics devices, forms the backbone of today’s information technology. Light-emitting diodes provide bright and energy-efficient white lamps for tomorrow’s lighting. Our programme offers education in the main areas of photonics: engineering (generation and manipulation of light), communication (transport of information by optical and microwave techniques), diagnostics (utilisation of light in industry, health care, etc.) and component technology (nanophotonics, optoelectronics, solar cells, etc). Our programme provides an in-depth understanding of optics and laser technology, practical experience of optical design, practical experience in an optics and laser laboratory and in-depth knowledge of some of the main photonics applications (e.g. communication or biophotonics)....

What are the fundamental constituents of matter and what forces act upon them? Particle physics is the subject that addresses the fundamental principles governing our world: forces and constituents. This understanding is formulated mathematically as theories (previously called laws of nature). The subject matter revolves through experimental explorations and development of theories and models. Today, our understanding is described by the Standard Model theory, which has exceptional predictive power but is incomplete. We explore the predictions of the Standard Model and seek a more complete understanding, i.e. beyond the Standard Model. In practice, we conduct the research in global experimental collaborations. Today, these experiments are mainly done at the LHC collider at CERN.... [-]

On the nanometre scale, the distinction between disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology becomes less clear. A high degree of interdisciplinarity is therefore characteristic for nanotechnology. The Nanoscience programme at Lund University has its scientific base in a physics description of nanoscale phenomena, but in addition to nanophysics you can, depending on your background and interests, choose to specialise in fields such as nanoelectronics, materials science or biophysics.

The programme is part of NanoLund, one of the world’s leading nanoscience research centres. You will interact with cutting-edge research throughout the programme, starting in the first semester and building up to the Master’s project. Moreover, by taking advantage of the wealth of courses offered by Lund University, you will be able to explore the cross-disciplinary nature of nanoscience.... [-]

Materials make up everything around us and their properties are critical to the performance of any system or device where they are used. Almost every aspect of modern society is touched by a technology made possible by advances in materials. Mobile phones, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), solar cells, catalytic converters, optical fibres and smart window materials are all examples of modern technology based on tailored materials. Since the properties of a material (which determine its function) are determined both by its structure, constituents and the way that the material is assembled, the study of materials involves many different approaches. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and often relies on both theoretical modelling and experimental characterisation.... [-]
