Jonsson International Exchange Fellowships at Linköping University in Sweden
In an effort to initiate collaborations in Nanoscience, Photonics and related fields between the University of Washington (UW) and Linköping University (LiU) in Sweden, we have initiated new fellowships for international research experiences at Linköping University, Sweden. Since this program is funded by a generous donation by Lars Jonsson, we will call these "Jonsson International Exchange Fellowships", and any resulting publications or presentations should acknowledge Lars Jonsson. The fellowships will fund the salaries and travel expenses for UW graduate students and postdocs to go to Linköping University for one or more quarters to do research with a professor there in nanoscience, photonics or related fields. Ideally these would be done in a way that the UW professor here also will get involved, so that it can serve to seed-fund longer-term collaborations between UW professors and LiU researchers.
Applications require the usual forms and letters for the Graduate Student Awards in Nanotechnology (see above), plus a letter of agreement from the proposed host researcher at LiU that he/she is willing to host this student or postdoc for the proposed project. Thus, the first step in developing an application will be for students (or their research advisors) here to contact a researcher there. See list of potential hosts at LiU below.
While postdocs may apply, higher priority will be given to graduate students. Professors may apply for travel expenses for collaborations.
Students and postdocs at LiU will similarly be applying for fellowships to come here to UW in such exchanges, so please try to cultivate collaborations with the groups listed below
List of Participating Groups at
List of research groups at Linköping University from their Departments of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM) and Nanoscience (CeNano) who wish to host exchange students from UW. (This is just a suggested list. Other groups may also be appropriate.)
Linköping University in Sweden
Center of Organic Electronics, The Centre is active in: organic nanoelectronics, printed organic electronics, and organic optoelectronics, all utilizing organic polymers and molecules for creating electronic functions. COE spans from polymer synthesis to electronic design via theory, spectroscopy and device physics.
Organic Physics Group, ITN We study the interdependence of materials properties and how they affect the functionality of the material in organic electronics, nanostructures via selfassembly of organic molecules, and organic spintronics applications. Our focus is mainly on synchrotron radiation based research, but we also develop materials through CVD and PVD techniques and build simple test devices. UPS, XPS, Synchrotron Radiation Spectroscopies (in close cooperation with W. R. Salaneck, IFM).
- Prof. Olle Inganäs
- PhD Fengling Zhang
Chemistry, The research is mainly focused on bio-chemistry and organic chemistry but research is also carried out within physical chemistry, organic analytical chemistry, and inorganic chemistry
- Assoc. Prof. Mats Fahlman Department of Science and Technology Campus Norrköping
Theory and Modelling, The research activities in the computational physics group at Linköping University are focused on computations and simulations of electronic and optical properties of molecular and polymeric materials.
- Prof. Peter Konradsson
- Ass. Prof. Per-Olov Käll
- Ass. Prof. Lars Ojamäe
