Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics

We conduct research on light–matter interactions at the atomic level. The acquired knowledge of the electronic properties is then used to develop important applications within energy and environmental science, as well as new functional materials. 

Ongoing research in molecular and condensed matter physics

Our Research

The research at the Division of Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics concerns the part of physics that examines matter and processes at the atomic level. The division is recognized as world leading in the development of X-ray based spectroscopic methodologies as powerful tools for the study of atomic processes. This has given us a leading position in the study of atoms, molecules and condensed matter – in particular materials, surfaces and interfaces with applications in the areas of energy, environment and advanced technology.
