Condensed Matter Physics

Research in condensed matter at Linnaeus University is done in the Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) research group. We deal primarily with theoretical studies of nanomagnetism, spintronics and molecular electronics.

Ongoing projects include nanospintronics at the atomic level with single-molecule magnets in single-electron transistors, magnetic impurities in semiconductor nanostructures and novel Dirac's materials such as graphene and topological insulators. These novel quantum systems can be employed for the physical realization of quantum computation. Thermoelectric transport in molecular junctions is also investigated.

The Condensed Matter Physics group is a part of the Department of Physics and Electrical Engineering at the Faculty of Technology. We are currently located at Norrgård, Norra vägen 49, in Kalmar and in building B and D, Vejdes Plats 6 in Växjö.

Linnaeus Physics Colloquium

Linnaeus Physics Colloquium is a series of seminars delivered by renowned researchers in physics. The seminars normally take place in room N304 at Norrgård in Kalmar, but can also be attended through link in room D0073, building D in Växjö, or live through Adobe Connect, Se each seminar below for information.
