Martin MagnussonSenior Lecturer
Martin H. Magnusson received his PhD in physics from Lund University in 2001, with a thesis on aerosol-based manufacturing of metal and semiconductor nanoparticles. Following graduation, he coordinated the startup of Pronano AB, a nanotechnology research institute. He was later recruited to the spin-off company Sol Voltaics AB, to build an R&D team for a new project on nanowire-based solar cells. Here, he co-invented Aerotaxy technology, a high-throughput method for nanowire growth. He returned to Lund University as associate professor in 2013 and continues Aerotaxy research on the academic side. He is also director of studies for the five-year Engineering Physics MSc program at the Technical faculty and deputy head of the Department of Physics.
