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.... [-]

The purpose of the programme is to give you a broad and fundamental knowledge in the fields of physical, theoretical chemistry and chemical physics. Students develop advanced laboratory skills, profound theoretical comprehension of fundamental mechanisms and a good understanding of practical applications. Special emphasis is given to an unbroken line of understanding, from quantum mechanical description of atoms and molecules to complex supramolecular structures, as well as their industrial and biological applications.

During the first year courses within the fields mentioned above provide you with a suitable base for future studies in these or related subjects. In the second year, you can, to a large extent, influence and plan your studies, with several different possibilities. It is mandatory to complete a Master’s degree project, corresponding to at least 30 ECTS credits.... [-]

Why should a physicist study biology? As a matter of fact, they already have for quite some time. Many famous physicists, such as Richard Feynman, Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, Max Delbrück and Erwin Schrödinger, to name a few, had a deep interest in biological problems and some made substantial progress to specific fields such as molecular biology.

Biology is increasingly becoming a quantitative science and has a range of fundamentally unresolved problems at hand, e.g. how biomolecules adopt their specific shape, how they interact in cells and how cells divide and communicate. The methods of theoretical physics, among other statistical methods, modelling and simulation, can provide a powerful toolbox for approaching many of these problems.... [-]

The Master's programme in physics is focused on modern physics and opens up the possibility for analytical work in the industry as well as postgraduate studies.

The goal of physics as a science is to uncover as far as possible the very essence of nature. Research in physics has resulted in a number of fundamental laws and relationships that can be applied to many areas of science and technology.

During your studies, you will work closely with teachers and scientists involved in research projects. You will get a deeper knowledge and understanding of concepts and models in physics and will be able to initiate and conduct research independently. The programme is offered in English and is aimed at students from around the world. Since some of the courses are distance courses, you may study parts of the programme online.... [-]
