Unit profile


NanoLund, the centre for research, education and innovation in nanoscience at Lund University, engages over 400 researchers, students and staff at the faculties of engineering, science and medicine. It is a strategic research area funded by the Swedish Government and Sweden’s largest research environment for nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Our ambition is to be a Great Place to do Nanoscience: an international, highly visible centre offering exceptional scientific opportunities, training, and career development. We do this with a culture of openness and by offering access to a range of state-of-the-art capabilities within characterization, nanofabrication and modelling.

We contribute to societal and sustainability challenges, for instance in health and clean energy, using the tools of nanoscience and nanotechnology. To this end, our research ranges from materials science and quantum physics to applications in energy, electronics and semiconductors, photonics, life science and nanosafety.
