The Material Physics and Nanotechnology master's programme focuses on the physics of new materials. The importance of advanced materials in current technology is best exemplified by the highly purified semiconductor crystals in use today, which are the foundation of the electronic age. Future applications in electronics and photonics will include nanoscaled physics, molecular electronics and non-linear optics.

The Materials Physics and Nanotechnology master's programme covers a wide range of materials used in for example semiconductor technology, optoelectronics and biotechnical applications. Students also study materials used in chemical sensors and biosensors, as well as materials' mechanical applications such as hardness and elasticity.

In the first semester students take mandatory courses such as Nanotechnology, Quantum Mechanics, Surface Physics and Physics of Condensed Matter, in order to get the knowledge necessary to understand advanced materials research.

The second and third semesters consist mainly of elective courses, and the fourth and final semester is devoted to a degree project in the area of material- and nanophysics.

The programme is supported by a number of internationally known research divisions, and is directed towards those who wish to pursue a university or industry career in materials-related research and development.

Based in contemporary experimental, theoretical and computational techniques in physics, this programme focuses on future scientific solutions and technological innovations. Particular emphasis is placed in the areas of materials physics, biotechnical physics, and theory and modelling. Examples of current engineering pursuits are the next generation batteries to power cars and smartphones, nanosized colour routing antennas and Lab-on-a-Chip solutions.

Programme description

Competence in physics is of utmost importance in a range of interdisciplinary research and development areas and this programme gives you a broad and solid introduction to the experimental, theoretical and computational physics that forms the basis for the advanced technologies of today and tomorrow. The programme has a firm basis in condensed matter physics and facilitates contemporary experimental, theoretical and computational techniques in the materials science and biotechnology fields.

The materials physics profile area focuses on using a variety of tools for the experimental study of a wide range of materials. Examples of research activities in this field include studies of disordered materials such as glass or various forms of soft materials, energy related materials such as lithium batteries, hard materials and materials for specific applications such as solar cells.

In biological physics, researchers apply physical methods to study biological systems and interfaces between biological systems and inorganic structures. Work includes several experimental techniques ranging from quartz microbalances to microscopic and other optical methods, and covers many length scales from biomolecules through cells to the tissue level.

In theory and modelling, research is concentrated to computational materials physics where advanced computational methods are used to relate atomic scale description to macroscopic phenomena, and in theoretical nanophysics where a combination of analytical and numerical methods are used to analyze the behavior of nanostructures.

The programme has no compulsory courses and by choosing from a wide array of elective courses, you have the opportunity to fully tailor your own master’s degree. This provides you with an ideal preparation for careers in industry and academia, both nationally and internationally.

Many future applications within electronics, telecommunication, information systems, medicine, and natural or artificial biosystems build upon progress in nanoscale technologies. On the nanoscale, new physical, chemical, and biological properties become important, and research often takes place on the borders between these disciplines. Proficiency in theoretical and practical aspects of these fields will therefore be important both within the industry and the academia. The nanotechnology programme is based on both physics and chemistry and will give you a thorough, yet advanced knowledge of the nanoscale system properties.

Programme description

Besides equipping you with a solid theoretical background in the physics, chemistry and technology of nanoscale systems the programme will also provide you with unique competencies, such as knowledge of the innovative possibilities of nanotechnology and ample hands-on experience in experimental techniques. You will be working in the MC2 cleanroom environment (one of few cleanrooms worldwide to allow Master's level student projects in the facilities) and other modern laboratories for both manufacturing and analysis, already during your first year. You will have the possibility to continue working in the laboratories as part of your Master's thesis.

Science on the nanoscale is typically carried out either in a “bottom-up” approach, where functional nanostructures are formed through molecular interactions, or by nanostructuring in a “top-down” approach. The core curriculum consists of a handful of compulsory courses that create a solid basis for both approaches. The programme also includes several semi-compulsory courses, creating a number of possible tracks within the program, as well as a number of courses that can be chosen to provide you with a deeper knowledge of your choice of area within nanotechnology. The conclusion of the programme consists of a thesis based on a half- or full-year research work carried out with some of the researchers in the area, either within our departments or with industrial partners.

The research conducted comprises three profile areas:
Nanophysics research, with a top-down perspective, includes studies of engineered nanosystems such as quantum computers, nanoelectronics and spintronics, applications and fundamental science of carbon nanotubes and graphene, nanosensors for bioanalytics and measurement technologies, and nano-optics with applications in, e.g. efficient solar energy production.

Nanochemistry, with a bottom-up focus, targets the ultimate miniaturization of electronics and photonics, molecular electronics, and the development of molecular methods to create nanodevices.

The Nanobiophysics activity, which forms a bridge between the other two and focuses on nanofluidics, soft matter nanotechnology, DNA-based self-assembly and biomimetic material science.

As a unique feature of the programme you will become part of this research and have access to our cleanroom and other world-class facilities for labs and group projects.

The Master’s Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored towards students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both in fundamental nanoscience and in the design and creation of components on the nanoscale.
