Materials chemistry

The Materials Chemistry Group is actively involved in research and teaching at Lund University and we are located at Kemicentrum in Lund.

We are engaged in several Bachelor and Master courses that cover fundamental and inorganic chemistry; materials science; solid state chemistry and nanotechnology, and microanalysis techniques.

In our research we synthesize inorganic materials and study their properties and structures at the atomic level using diffraction and microscopy techniques. This involves work with powder and single crystal diffraction at home sources as well as synchrotron work and various techniques of electron microscopy.

We also investigate the growth of nanometer structures and their characterization by high-resolution electron microscopy in parallel with spectroscopy techniques with high spatial resolution. We have ongoing collaboration with other Swedish and international research institutions and we have strong links with industry.
