AFM

International Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials, AFM

We have established an International Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials (AFM), which contributes at the highest level to the creation of knowledge. Our work in highly competitive Centers of Excellence has been evaluated as excellent to outstanding by the VR, SSF, and VINNOVA.

AFM 2017 Research Grants Call for proposals

Hereby, Advanced Functional Materials, the Strategic Research Area (SRA, SFO) of LiU in Material Sciences, announces 4 research projects of 500 kSEK/year each.

Conference on Advanced Functional Materials (AFM2016)

Please visit the official homepage of AFM2016: www.afm2016.se

The dealine for registration is now extended to 15 April 2016.

23-24 August 2016

Vildmarkshotellet Kolmården, Norrköping, Sweden

The aim of the AFM2016 conference is to highlight research within the area of Advanced Functional Materials, to establish new projects and collaborations, and to discuss challenges and opportunities within materials sciences, in the Nordic countries and internationally. The areas are broadly divided into Soft Materials, Hard Materials and Theory & Modelling.

Researcher Portraits

Björn Alling

Turning up the heat in quantum physics

With seven million Swedish crowns in his pocket, Björn Alling will put his mind to the most fundamental equations of physics: What happens in magnetic materials when things really heat up?

Urban Forsberg

A cool challenger in the semiconductor industry

Base stations for a rapidly expanding mobile network, radar for fighter planes, communicating satellites... The founders of the clone company Classic – four semi-conductor researchers from the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology – appear to have an encouraging market for their products.

Carina Höglund

She helped ESS out of a fix

When the cold war ended and the production of nuclear weapons virtually stopped, the supply of the isotope helium-3 plummeted. For the major project ESS – European Spallation Source – this could have been a major setback. But Linköping University researcher Carina Höglund solved the problem.

Mats Sandberg

Ink the key to printed electronics

The first commercial printed electronics product, a battery tester, is on its way onto the market, but at Acreo Swedish ICT research is in full flow to develop ink that will have many different applications, in sunshine and in rain.

Sten Johansson

Looking inside a Superalloy

Sten Johansson and his research team are investigating the inside of a Superalloy. Knowledge of how a material fatigued and eventually fails is crucial to increasing the efficiency of gas turbines and jet engines.

Magnus Berggren

Surface switch turns on cell culture

Professor Magnus Berggren and his research group have developed an electronic surface – a surface switch – based on organic electronic materials. It enables the researchers to control both the growth and the differentiation of stem cells.

Research Highlights

Power paper

Storing electricity in paper

Researchers at Linköping University’s Laboratory of Organic Electronics, Sweden, have developed power paper – a new material with an outstanding ability to store energy.

Research at LiU

Global ranking climb continues

Linköping University has taken a big step up on ARWU, a global ranking that places special emphasis on research strength. This year’s placing is 308, 70 spots higher than last year.

Materials science, researchers

Gathering of forces around new materials

Leading materials research at Linköping University and Acreo Swedish ICT will be in the spotlight when around 100 senior materials researchers, plus PhD students, from over 20 divisions in three departments gather for a conference on 20-21 August, 2014.

Magnus Berggren

Magnus Berggren wins Wallenberg prize

Magnus Berggren, professor of organic electronics at Linköping University, is the winner of the 2014 Marcus Wallenberg Prize, for his ground-breaking work on electronic paper.

carina höglund

Forskningspris till Carina Höglund

Carina Höglund, materialforskare vid Linköpings universitet och European Spallation Source, fick på torsdagen ta emot Chester Carlsons forskningspris för framstående innovation, 150 000 kronor.

Quantum dots provide complete control of photons

By emitting photons from a quantum dot at the top of a micropyramid, researchers at Linköping University are creating a polarized light source for such things as energy-saving computer screens and wiretap-proof communications.

Highly Water-Dispersible Surface-Modified Gd2O3 Nanoparticles for Potential Dual-Modal Bioimaging

Highly Water-Dispersible Surface-Modified Gd2O3 Nanoparticles for Potential Dual-Modal Bioimaging

Water-dispersible and luminescent gadolinium oxide (GO) nanoparticles (NPs) were obtained cleverly by using fluorescent small water-soluble conjugated carboxylates (HL) coating.
