The research carried out within the Division of Materials Theory covers a wide range of topics within materials and condensed matter physics.
The topics we're currently focused on are magnetism, lattice dynamics, hydrogen storage, graphene, molecular electronics, solar cells, organic batteries and solar fuel production (photoelectrocatalysis).
Delve into materials theory
The masterprogram in physics with specialization towards materials theory provides you with a first-class education within the field of materials theory. We offer you a stimulating environment from day one.
Many of your teachers are an active member of one of the world largest research groups within materials theory, the division of materials theory at the department of astronomy and physics at Uppsala university.
The possibilities for you to specialize within materials theory range from many particle physics via density functional theory to macroscopic modelling with applications ranging from basic research to industry relevant research.
If you wish to do your bachelor- or master thesis at the Division for Materials Theory you should visit our education pages and have a look what projects we propose.
