The Division of Atomic Physics at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Lund University, Sweden has a staff of over 40 researchers including guest researchers and graduate students. The research at the division is mainly based on the use of lasers, ranging from diode lasers to terawatt lasers at the High-Power Laser Facility. Some areas of research are: basic atomic physics including interactions between intense laser-fields and matter and VUV/XUV laser spectroscopy, quantum electronics, quantum optics and solid state spectroscopy, applied molecular spectroscopy, laser applications in medicine and biology, and industrial applications.

Large scale facilities let us glimpse into matter and interactions, from the smallest particles to the structure of the Universe, and into processes in molecules, materials and living organisms.The expertise gained from the explorations have paved the way for many aspects of technology that we take for granted, but also lays the foundation for many future developments that may include artificial photosynthesis, room-temperature superconductors, protein synthesis and self-healing materials. Inspiration and dreams of many other developments we cannot yet foresee are sparked by new insights - both from small and large facilities. How do dreams, competence, networks and technology development benefit society? How should research funds be distributed beteween different areas? How can we balance funding of fundamental and applied research?
