Atomic Physics

Faculty of Engineering, LTH

Welcome to Atomic Physics!


The Division of Atomic Physics at the Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Lund University, Sweden has a staff of over 50 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.


We congratulate:

Katarina Svanberg will be awarded a NIH Lifetime Achievement Award in Biophotonics for her contributions in the field of Photodynamic Therapy as well as Spectroscopic Imaging Methods by the chairs of Eight Inter- Institute Workshop on Biophotonics from Bench to Bedside, in September 2015
